This is a tough review to write. For context, I've played many of the best golf courses on the planet (Cypress Point, Pebble, Oakmont, PV, National, Merion, and all the major US Links courses - Bandon, Whistling, Streamsong, Chambers, etc.) If you could promise me...More

Arguably the finest golf course I have played over last 30 years and I have played around the world. Has the coast line, cliffs and sheer grandeur of Pebble Beach but more beautifully manicured. More hills and elevation changes than Pebble and of course the...More

This was the third course of seven that we played. This course had the most spectacular views of any course I have played. Winds were 25-30 mph which made it difficult. Didn't score very well but the view made up for it. This course is...More

Amazing golf course, spectacular views, challenging holes especially with 30 to 40 mile an hour winds. Expensive but overall well worth the experience. Delightful with a caddy.

This course is unique, spectacular, difficult and clearly one of the best in all of golf. You will not play a course, ever, that is similar. Since it juts out on a peninsula in Southern Ireland the weather is extremely changeable. The locals say only...More

Most courses as scenic as Old Head will accommodate a request to just ride a buggy along with a golfer. I've seen fees range from €20 - €50.

It has 15 rooms of a Hyatt quality. It is not a family place but rather a golfer's paradise. Kinsale, which is an awesome fishing village has a number of B and B's and hotels of various quality. Cork is about 35-40 minutes... More

No, not really. It's typical terrain for Ireland and the elevation change between some greens to the next tee can be significant.
