The setting for the Old Head Golf Links is spectacular and historic, a narrow peninsula, connected by a thin strip of land to the southern Irish coast that projects into the Atlantic. In this area countless ships have foundered, including the Lusitania, a passenger liner that sank in 1915 after a German U-boat hit it with a torpedo and in so doing helped to galvanize support for the entry of the US into World War I. The course plays out among the cliffs along the coastline, and so is not suited to those who are afraid of heights. And while a good score is definitely possible when the wind dies down, errant balls are apt to be lost forever to the sea. Nearly every hole along this remarkable course makes excellent use of the landscape; of particular note is the par 5 17th, set in the shadow of a lighthouse.

I really had high expectations while heading to Old Head, and they have been all easily exceeded since I enjoyed an unforgettable round : sunny and virtually windless conditions, beautiful clubhouse, efficient and friendly staff, valuable caddie, stunning seaside landscape, breathtaking shots over cliffs, manicured and beautifully designed layout, Old Head offers a once in a lifetime golf adventure. Is it best course I’ve ever played ? It’s not. Is it my favorite golf experience ever : Sir Yes Sir ! Expensive but highly recommended.

Speechless would be the best way to describe this course indeed. I did not know what to expect when my friends signed us up for this course. It’s so far the most impressive course I played. Stunning views on the sea with the lighthouse in the background were breathtaking. It’s a very challenging links course with the gusts coming from everywhere. Playing around the cliffs didn’t make it easier. It was a good choice to take a caddie with us, who was very helpful. I would everybody suggest to go and play that course and hope for some good weather to enjoy the landscape.
