Ballybunion Old

Old Course, Ballybunion, County Kerry, Ireland

Tom Watson describes Ballybunion best, “After playing Ballybunion for the first time, a man would think that the game of golf originated here. There appears to be no man made influence. It is a true links course of sharp contours throughout. Ballybunion is a course on which many golf architects should live and play before they build a golf course. I consider it a true test of golf”.
