COURSE OF THE MONTH: Ireland’s majestic Old Head Golf Links

A 220-acre diamond peninsula, jutting out dramatically into the wilds of the Atlantic Ocean. Eighteen beautiful holes framed by spectacular cliffs and the crashing waves. Ancient cave networks underneath the fairways and just the iconic lighthouse to interrupt the seemingly endless horizon. There’s no other course in the world quite like the Old Head Golf Links in County Cork, Ireland. Half of the holes play along the cliff’s edge, which can rise as much as 300 feet from the ocean below. And at more than 7,200 yards from the back tees it represents something of a challenge – but a thoroughly enjoyable one. A good mix of par 3s, 4s and 5s and a generous selection of tee boxes on each hole make Old Head an enticing prospect for any golfer visiting Ireland – and promises a round that will live long in the memory.
