Old Head Golf Links

Old Head Golf Links

Old Head Golf Links is built on a 220-acre diamond of land, jutting out over two miles into the Atlantic Ocean. The promontory is almost an island with numerous caves running beneath your feet as you play the course.

  • 18 hole
  • Links
  • Par 72
  • 6,493 Yards

The links and practice area occupy 180 acres and the remaining 40 acres of unspoilt cliff (rising in places to over 300 feet) frame the course.

Old Head, par 72, comprises five Par 5s, five Par 3s and eight Par 4s – stretching to over 7,200 yards from the tips, with a minimum of six tees per hole. Nine holes play along the cliff tops, and all eighteen holes provide stunning ocean views. With the ever-changing sea breezes, the course provides a stern test to the touring pro and the high handicapper alike.

“I have a property in Ireland and I love to go back when I can and play golf around the Old Head of Kinsale." – Vinnie Jones (Hollywood Actor) “Old Head is the most remarkable golf destination” – Kevin Markham (Author of ‘Hooked’)
