There are two courses at Ballyliffin: the Old Links and Glashedy. Everyone has a favourite and some of the golf magazines have put Glashedy above the Old Links, but for me I feel the Old Links just clinches it. What I would say is that Glashedy is a tougher course, but in the end you’re just going to have to go there and find out for yourself which one you prefer. One thing is for sure: you won’t be disappointed that you did.

Ballyliffin has a very unique history and if you’re interested in going into this in-depth I would suggest reading the history section on their website. A brief synopsis is that Ballyliffin GC was formed just after the Second World War when land was rented from several land owners, but work on the new course which is now known as the Old Links began in 1970. By 1973 there were eighteen holes.
