Exceptional Settings

The Old Head Golf Links is one of the most remarkable developments ever conceived in the history of golf; an Atlantic promontory that will never be rivalled in terms of drama and beauty.
It rises hundreds of feet high above dramatic cliffs, surrounded by the ocean on all sides and commanding the most spectacular views from virtually every part.

The History

The Old Head of Kinsale is a national monument and an ancient royal site, fortified by a castle at the narrowest part of the promontory, with history traceable back to several centuries before Christ. It is a place of special historical, archaeological and scientific interest.
The Erainn Celtic people, the first Irish settlers, fortified the peninsula by building a fort, the remains of which can still be seen today, along with the castles and signal tower on The Old Head itself. The new lighthouse was built on the site in 1853, carrying on the ancient tradition of "Navigational Fires" situated on the promontory.

From Past to Present

The Old Head has seen much change during its remarkable history. The golf course will now provide a new challenge for the future generations of visitors to The Old Head, providing yet another chapter in the history of this beautiful place.

Golf Course Composition

The 220 acre promontory has allowed the composition of a 7,100 yard, par 72 golf course configured as two returning loops of nine holes, together with a practice ground facility. Nine holes play alongside the cliff tops, providing an exhilarating test of golf and concentration for players of all standards and categories.

Nature Conservation

The Old Head was included in the "Inventory of Outstanding Landscapes in Ireland" as being ‘a narrow coastal headland with spectacular cliffs of geological interest’. The landscape development program at The Old Head is designed to enhance, complement and harmonise the newly planted areas with the existing vegetation. It consists primarily of native maritime species, coupled with a refined selection of seaside plants from the flora of all five continents.
