Ballybunion – Cashen Course

Designed by Robert Trent Jones, Senior and first opened in 1982 the Cashen Course is Ballybunion’s magnificent new course, located among amazingly high sand dunes at the mouth of the river Cashen. The course flows with the land and uses the natural contours to full potential. Rated in the top 100 by Golf Magazine, the vast majority of Cashen’s green positions have been copied by many new course designers. Spectacular and supremely challenging, what can never be copied is the majestic landscape and fresh sea air that is distinctly part of the Ballybunion experience.

Ballybunion – Old Course

Located on the Shannon Estuary, Ballybunion is a true seaside links course, virtually treeless with sharp contours throughout. There appears to be no man made influence, it looks like a course mapped out in the 10th century. There is a wild look to the place, the long grass covering the dunes that pitch and role throughout the course making it very intimidating. Yet the course is eminently fair. It is a course that will test your patience. It is not a course that favours one particular style of play over another, but one that simply rewards good play and good shots.
