Ballyliffin Golf Club lays claim to two impressive championship links golf courses, the first of which, as the name suggests, was the Old Links course. The club is the most northerly golf club in  Ireland, situated around 30 miles from Londonderry, or just less than 100 miles from Belfast.

The course opened in 1947 as a 9 hole course, but was renovated in 1973 by a team consisting of Eddie Hackett, Frank Pennink and Charles Lawrey, with recent modifications being made by  Nick Faldo to the delight of many players.

The Old Links course has a par of 71 and is made up of 18 holes which intertwine with the newer  Glashedy course through its impressive dunes with breath-taking views of Pollan Bay.

Ballyliffin Golf club has hosted several Championship tournaments on the Old Links course, including The European Seniors and the Irish Senior Open, and it is widely anticipated that it will hold more major tournaments in the future.

Green fees are slightly lower for the Old Links course than its sister course Glashedy, and it possible to lower costs buy booking in groups, or with early bird or twilight tee times. Lower rates of play are also available outside of the high season.

The club offers different styles of golf classes, catering to your strengths and weaknesses, giving you the expertise necessary to overcome its two championship courses. The club can also adjust your equipment to better suit you through its equipment customising service.

The club has its own driving range, practice area and putting green, as well as offering golf buggies, trollies and clubs for hire to all players, provided they are requested in advance of arrival.

The clubhouse is home to the Links bar and restaurant, which delivers exquisite panoramic vistas of both golf courses alongside a choice of delicious food and drink. The club also offers locker facilities to players and has a pro shop onsite.

Ballyliffin usually provides excellent golfing weather, as it is mostly dry and cloudy with occasional light rain. There are also an abundance of hotels available in Ballyliffin itself or in the surrounding villages, which can accommodate your needs.
