“If sheer pleasure is the yardstick, then Ballybunion’s Old Course gets my vote as the No. 1 in the world.” So said Peter Dobereiner, the famous English golf writer.
Dobereiner was doing no more than reflecting the views of the locals who somehow knew through all of their struggles for survival since the day the club was founded way back in 1893 that Ballybunion Links Golf in Irelan was an unknown treasure waiting for the outside world to come and discover it. Ever since, the North Kerry links has been one of the most lucrative and recognizable brands in world golf. Knowledgeable golfers realize that if they haven’t played golf at Ballybunion their golfing education is gravely incomplete. In modern times Ballybunion is regarded as one of the top courses in Ireland. Located on the North West coast of County Kerry, on a beautiful stretch of sand dunes overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, you'll find two dramatic, challenging and unique links golf courses at Ballybunion - the Old Course and the Trent Jones Cashen Course.
