First Established: 1997

Truly, what adjectives can be used to justly describe the frequently-photographed yet never-get-tired-of-viewing setting of Old Head Golf Club? The course occupies an historical headland which violently juts out for two miles into the Atlantic Ocean, atop ruggedly spectacular cliffs.
Although the Old Head of Kinsale possesses significant Irish history, the course itself was opened relatively recently; however, although a junior when compared to the age of most other golf clubs in Ireland, the Old Head Golf Club has swiftly become rightly recognised as one the most dramatic, awe-inspiring, adrenaline-inducing and -sapping locations to play golf anywhere on this planet.
