The Course

The rolling fairways amongst the high dunes are some of the world’s most impressive golf holes. Founded way back in 1893 next to the Atlantic Ocean, this amazing piece of property was just waiting for the golf world to come and see. In 1936, the famous English architect, Tom Simpson, pulled into Ballybunion in his Rolls Royce, only to discover that minimal changes were required to make what he called “finishing touches” to God-made challenges with nature. Five-time winner of the British Open, Tom Watson, says, “Nobody can call himself a golfer until he has played Ballybunion.” Tourists go to Ireland to see “The Cliffs of Moher”. Golfers go to Ireland to play “Ballybunion”. Some of God’s wonders don’t need write-ups, they need to be seen. Get to Ballybunion.
