Ireland – South West – Ballybunion Cashen – 6194 yds – Par 72
Many consider that Ballybunion Golf Club is all about the Old Course. However nothing could be further from the truth. Designed by legendary course architect, Robert Trent Jones Sr. and opened in 1980, the Cashen Course at Ballybunion is more than entitled to share the same hallowed turf as the Old Course and is a superb test of links golf in every respect.
That some consider that the Cashen Course presents a stiffer challenge than the Old Course, speaks volumes for its quality.
