Glashedy Links is beautiful, playable and fun

There are two courses at Ballyliffin, and both of them are stunning, including the newer of the two, Glashedy Links. There is so much to like about this course, which is slated to host the 2018 Irish Open: It's in superb condition, it's interesting, it's very playable and the views from the high points of the course are terrific. My favorite might be on the par 3 fifth hole, which plays down to a green guarded by four pot bunkers. Best of all, you can see Pollan Bay in the background, including Glashedy Rock Island. Two holes later, there's another dramatic par 3, but this one is entirely different as it plays down around 150 feet to a green flanked by a pond. Although I didn't get to play the other 18 holes at Ballyliffin, the Old Course, it seems like Ballyliffin has a great one-two punch, well worth the drive to the northern most part of Ireland.

What a surpise

Our group played the Old Links course as our second of the day and last of our trip. Honestly we were expecting a tired and ordinary tract to finish our trip playing it as a scramble. Were we surprised. Unlike the Glashedy course this has moguls running down every fairway which push balls in every direction.

The greens were in excellent shape and large for what we had come to expect from this old links courses. The whole complex is situated in an ocean of grasses and moss. I didn't see a tree or even a bush anywhere near play.

Getting to Ballyliffin is a hike but well worthwhile. Plan to play both courses. You wont be disappointed.

A perfect compliment to the Old Course

A stunning sister course to the Old Course at Ballyliffin is the (newish) Glashedy Links. Appropriately named as the view of Glashedy Rock Island rarely leaves your sight, the Glashedy course has much more drama than the Old Course, but is an equally-easy walk. The Par-3's (there are only three of them) are standouts, with each a dramatic downhill approaches to well-guarded greens. The course winds its way through sweeping dunes with idyllic green sites. Glashedy and the Old Course are a perfect pairing (and for only 150 Euros to play both, it seems like a no-brainer!)
