Spectacular...

When we first drove out the road to the Old Head in 1998, we were annoyed because the high walls on both sides blocked the view. Only when we ourselves had our feet on the ground, we understood the reason - the wind tore at our bodies like wild. In heavy storms we would be blown smoothly over the cliff without the walls. The people had to come to the lighthouse - even in really bad weather

We all play golf for more than 25 years, the leader over 35, all have seen well over 500 golf courses. The Leader noted his 750th this year.

This course is clearly the No 1 in terms of spectacle.

The holes are not directly on the cliffs go a little under, in contrast to the 9 Klippenholes provide the full spectacle. But all are good or even very good holes.
Not for nothing is this course in Ireland in the top 20 - for Britain & Ireland it is easy to find in the top 100 - to find.
In front are the big links courses.

Care and maintenance meet the requirements. However, in the spring - after the winter storms - one must expect that even winter damage is visible. The salty air and the spray nibbles neatly on the green.

Twice we had during our visits decent Beaufort values, with appropriate swell. The spray we felt in the face. This time almost smoothly painted lake - hardly any wind.

Such good scores we have never brought here to the clubhouse, was really good. Almost all the balls survived the 18 holes, they come home in a special showcase.

Platz lives from its location

Certainly it is very flattering, if someone after the arrival at the parking is someone to the side and the Golfbäg drives to the driving range. However, once you have knocked off, you are yourself, that is left with the flight. In my case, with Americans who prefer to talk and drink beer, how to practice the spirit of golf, let alone play golf. Generally an evil on expensive places in Ireland. And no Marshall far and wide. The place lives from its location, playfully certainly not uninteresting, the greens extremely fast, but not a "must have" for the price.

MEGA

The best I've ever experienced - and there will probably be no more gain - everyone who thinks he has already experienced everything that golfing has to do - and OLD HEAD has not yet played "IRRT!"

Dream Place

With perfect weather, which Ireland has to offer, we played Old Head. Entrainment of caddies is highly recommended. Otherwise the game is slightly deviated.
The views are fantastic. The hotel is ideally located with its views.

Simply the Best

What a great place. The location unique, as are the views. Everything Tipp Topp geflegt. Super great service and extremely friendly staff. Add to that a prima Club Restaurant and a hervoragend stocked golf shop. Full points!!!
To this was then lucky enough to place in bright sunshine and only 2-3 Bft. can play. We are very impressed and happy to have experienced this.

Old Head has two faces!

Old Head is a Cliff Course, no links course, this lack of sandy soil. The paths along the cliffs are absolutely spectacular!
The central pathways are a bit too similar and do not fit so completely to this course! I am personally of the opinion that it would have been better Old Head would be built by a world-class designer as architect of 5-6! The line in the design lacks a little! Of course, Old Head is expensive, but you should invest the Fairy ever and play this spectacular golf course! In summary, I would say that in my Ireland Ranking Old Head clearly behind Doonbeg, Tralee, Portmornock, Lahinch and The Iceland is!
Still 5 stars, the scenery is simply all outstanding!!!

Certainly one of the most spectacular courses in Ireland

Old Head is a 'must play'
We arrived without reservation (end of July) and were lucky to get one of the last start times. The next five days were fully booked. Top Service and a place of breathtaking. we will be back...

Staggeringly

God must be a golfer, otherwise he would not have created such a place where people could build such a resourceful place. Even the journey across the land bridge is breathtaking and then you have 18 tracks that make this peninsula into an experience of a special kind. The cliffs along with breathers you move the ball to always resist amazement to enjoy the views of the sea and lighthouse. Did you God then even in your arms, then you have nice weather, not too much wind and a good score. Something better you kan not happen!

A must for every golfer

What we experienced there was simply awesome. Early morning are driven by K Club by car to Cork... 3 hours, but it was all worth. 500 km would even accept purchase.
The staff is very friendly and helpful... how the would like to have. When first Discount moch was cool and foggy, but after the sun came out and heitzte on.
The place is a dream... only the backdrop of the cliffs is worth a trip. Very good condition brilliant greens and the fairways optimal. Each track is a highlight... a must for any golfer. Very nice clubhouse and good food.
We will definitely play again at this place. Spent 5 days in Ireland and almost always sun up to 30 minutes.

A dream for every golfer

I've played about 200 places over the world in the last twenty years, but none comes even close to "Old Head of Kinsale." My girlfriend and I played two rounds in July 2009 in glorious sunshine but perceived wind force seven. The results were disastrous, but here it was easy to enjoy the spectacular space. A beautiful view of the sea from almost any location, discounts and greens right on the cliffs, grass fairways surrounded by dunes, nestled in the unspoilt countryside, and again the view of the lighthouse, the symbol of the peninsula. It feels as if the golf course planted directly into the ancient world of the Celts. The club house is hidden behind dunes and can be seen only from the eighteenth track of in its full glory. On all other tracks you are alone with nature and his flight. This system also brings to the swarming golfers who think they have seen it all.
