  • South West Ireland is golf heaven, and whilst the big names of Ballybunion, Tralee, Waterville and Old Head roll off the tongue, there are also some fantastic budget options. For example the two classic links of Dooks and Dingle, the latter being the most westerly course in Europe and the former being one of Ireland's oldest (est.1889). Around Cork you have Cork Golf Club, of which Billy Casper said after visiting in 2013 “The stretch of holes from the 4th to the 10th compare with any golf course I have played”, and Lee Valley, which is rated in Golf Digest’s Top 100 Irish Courses. Mahony’s Point, the first of the two Killarney courses to be built, and with spectacular views of the Killarney Lakes and McGillicuddy Reeks (Ireland’s highest mountain range), should also not be missed!

    A region not only blessed with outstanding golf, we also suggest exploring all the enchantments on offer along the Wild Atlantic Way. Take it slow along scenic routes or dive into scaling a sheer cliff face, surfing or hiking up the many mountains. You’ll find the Ireland you’ve always imagined along this wind-swept coastline.

  • Tee Times

    Many of the golf courses you will wish to play are private golf clubs and therefore have limited tee times and restrictions on visitor play. Often demand outstrips supply, so it is never too early to begin planning your golf vacation.

    Attire in Golf Clubhouses

    Most golf clubs allow visitors to use their clubhouse facilities, including the locker rooms and dining areas. Over the last decade, golf clubs have relaxed their dress codes, however we recommend taking a pair of street shoes (not sneakers) to avoid any issues.

    Caddies and Carts

    The majority of the links courses have caddies available because, traditionally, they are walking courses, however we will often need to book them in advance for you. Caddies are self-employed and supply can change on a daily basis.

    With regards golf carts, these can be hard to come by on the traditional links courses and in some cases do not even exist! As with caddies, please request carts at the time of booking with us and we will do our best to reserve them for you.

    Practice Facilities

    These are not quite as abundant as they are at US golf courses, and you may struggle to find a practice range (or a conveniently located one) at the great, classic links courses in the UK and Ireland. Even if you do manage to find one, don’t be surprised if you have to purchase range ball tokens from the Pro Shop and self-serve!

    Handicap Restrictions

    Many of the golf courses have handicap restrictions for visiting golfers and will require to see official proof of your handicap. The primary reason for this is to ensure only seasoned golfers visit these courses and don’t hold up play.

    Halfway Houses and Beverage Carts

    Most of these great links golf courses were designed to play nine holes out (away from the clubhouse) followed by nine holes back, with no halfway house. Be prepared to carry refreshments in your golf bag to keep you going for the whole round. Similarly, there are very few (if any) beverage/refreshment carts at these courses as it is not customary to drink alcohol whilst playing golf in the UK and Ireland.
