Old Head Golf Links - Kinsale

Near the fairytale village of Kinsale is a new links built on the cliffs with 14 out of 18 ocean holes. In 1999 Links Magazine called it “the world’s most spectacular golf course”.  “Spectacular beyond belief” is how the site of Old Head GC has been described and the course is easily the most remarkable golf project in Europe in the last twenty years.  In fairness, it has 6 great holes, 6 average holes, and 6 others. Therefore, the course is better just than average but sitting on world class real estate. But what a setting!!!  Situated 45 minutes from Cork Airport, the course sits on a tiny peninsula, almost completely surrounded by water and alongside the old lighthouse and castle ruins.  The Erainn Celtic people worshipped this area, dating back before Christ, and built a castle on this magnificent jetty of land.  A camera is a must here and non-golfers would enjoy the walk too!  A magnificent new clubhouse was built, discreet on the outside but gorgeous on the inside, with the interior decorated in fossil antiques. On the cover of Links Magazine, some years ago, Old Head was described as the ‘most extraordinary golf course on earth.’   Remember to bring your camera!
