Bonnies Golf Ireland Tour – St. Bonaventure

Must read

After an amazing day at Tralee, the bar may have been raised on Day 4 at Old Head Golf Links. 

Considered by many to be perhaps the most breathtaking setting in the golf world, the course is set on the Old Head of Kinsale, a plot of land with some of the longest history in Ireland. Stretching two miles into the Atlantic Ocean, evidence of settlers on this land date back more than 6,000 years and several centuries-old reminders of this history dot the course including multiple lighthouse and castle ruins dating to the early 1600s and beyond. 

Much of the course is built on jagged cliffs of the Old Head with 300-foot drop offs to the Atlantic Ocean below creating some remarkably breathtaking and nerve-rattling views at several tee boxes. 

On this day, the Bonnies lucked out with ideal weather conditions and some of the teeth taken out of the course by the lack of much wind. 

Last year, Old Head ranked No. 85 in the Golf Digest world rankings and it has been ranked as high as the 60s.
