Old head Golf Links

Description

Old Head Golf Links occupies a 220-acre promontory that juts out over two miles into the Atlantic. The course's name refers to the Old Head of Kinsale, which is a national monument and ancient royal site that sits at the narrowest part of the promontory. The location was a stronghold for the first Irish settlers. The dramatic almost-island on which the golf course is situated rises hundreds of feet above the water, with only with dramatic cliffs separating the rolling hills from the sea. The classic links layout is simple but interesting and naturally there are spectacular views from every hole, especially the nine that play from atop the cliffs. The front nine is strong, but the back nine is where the challenging nature of the golf course really comes through.
