Old Head Golf Links @ Kinsale

Designer: Cathal O'Sullivan

Course Description:

Located just outside of the small Irish country town of Kinsale, is the Old Head Golf Links. Built on a peninsula the course guarantees each player the most spectacular views along the Irish Sea. I aimed to capture the look and feel of this course as well as I possibly could within the parameters of the designer, so it essentially looks like you're playing on an island as opposed to a peninsula. There are 5 Tee options with the longest measuring a relatively short 7,123 yards. It is a par 72 course that features 5 par 5's & par 3's with 8 par 4's to complete the course. Due to the overall short length of the course, softening the fairways was needed in order to give each player a little more of a challenge hitting into the slightly firm and fast greens with 4 different pin positions available. You will also find a generous mix of narrow and wide fairways across the golf course which should test each level of player, depending on wind.
