Designed around imposing dunes, the Glashedy Links at the world-famous Ballyliffin Golf Club has earned notoriety for its devilish bunkers and huge rolling greens, but also for its captivating mountain and ocean views. Unlike its sibling Old Links, Glashedy is laid out up in the wild a bit further inland and is devoid of any “weak holes”. Having hosted the North West of Ireland Open in 2002, Ladies Irish Open in 1998 and more recently, the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open in 2018, it is a true test of championship links golf.
Over 7,000 yards in length from the championship tees, the Glashedy Links provides all its visitors with an unforgettably challenging yet thrilling golfing experience. The course opens with 3 mighty par 4's surrounded by deep dunes and glorious greens, but the struggle is well worth it at the end. The rewarding last shot must be threaded along a corridor of dunes and between two bunkers.
