Utterly spectacular and a very very special place high up on the Kinsale cliffs. Hard to stop grinning the whole time you’re at Old Head. Stunning on and off the course. I can’t believe there is anyone who wouldn’t enjoy a day here. Not found many other golf clubs that have a live lobster tank either!
A opening hole warms you up for some of the most spectacular golf surely in the world. Played it in sunny benign conditions and also played it in a gale and heavy rain. Even when nearly unplayable in a game it was fun, fun, fun!! Service on and off the course is second to none.
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.
