Ballyliffin Golf Club

Ballyliffin was, until very recently only spoken of in whispers by the privileged few who had chanced upon it, so much was it regarded as the ultimate hidden gem. As Ireland’s northernmost golf club, it is at a place where the world seems to come to an end, a sublimely isolated wilderness bounded by sheer cliffs and rocky islets, a place where even the fresh air is reputed to be the world’s purest, and where multifarious birdlife proliferates in supreme liberty.

The Old Course

The Old Course at Ballyliffin has long been regarded as the ultimate hidden gem of links golf. It has a terrain so perfect for golf with its amazingly contoured fairways that twists and tumbles in every conceivable direction - a natural golf links. The Old Course has a charm, character and curiosity all of its own. Here for the first time, the golfer can appreciate the full glory of the links as it unravels between the sea and encircling hills. The Old Links offers countless superb holes including the 3rd, played directly towards the ocean along a perilously narrow fairway and the legendary par 3, 5th with its elusive green perched between two large sand hills but arguably the best hole is kept until last, where the fairway wriggles along its entire length, coming to rest at the foot of the clubhouse no doubt one of the finest finishing holes in golf.

The Glashedy Links

Glashedy Links adjoins the Old Course at Ballyliffin and provides a roller coaster tour of this remarkable landscape. At many 36 hole complexes, the newer golf course is often perceived as inferior. Nothing could be further from the truth at Ballyliffin and Glashedy Links is recognized as a great championship course and probably the better of the two. Glashedy Links stands today as a supremely testing and stunningly beautiful links course. Glashedy is destined for recognition as one of the world's finest links. The greens are generally large and full of subtle undulation, while many are two tiered, putting an emphasis on accurate approach shots.
