Project Description

Manager – John Farren

Ballyliffin Golf Club established in 1947, has rapidly gained acclaim and recognition as one of the finest golf clubs in the world.

Situated on the northern most tip of Ireland, at the start of the Wild Atlantic Way, Ballyliffin Golf Club is now firmly on the itinerary of every discerning golfer visiting this island. Home to two Championship links – Glashedy Links and The Old Links, Ballyliffin is unique in the quality and contrasting excellence of both courses on site.

In 2020, Ballyliffin opened a fantastic new 9 hole Par3 links designed by Pat Ruddy. The Pollan Links complements our two championship links and presents a stimulating and challenging short course for members and visitors alike.

The Glashedy Links, opened in 1995, is a Pat Ruddy and Tom Craddock masterpiece fashioned around the incredible dunes of Ballyliffin and Ruddy has returned on many occasions to fine tune and oversee the constant improvements to the links.

The Glashedy Links has hosted the European Tour 2018 DDF Irish Open, the 2016 Irish Close Championship and Boys Home Internationals, The Interprovincial Championships in 2006, the European Tour North West of Ireland Open in 2002 and the Ladies Irish Open in 1998. The Old Links hosted the European Tour Irish Seniors Open in 2008 and the Irish Women’s Close in 2015.

Pat Ruddy is the owner of The European Club and is regarded as one of the greatest golf architects of modern times.

The Old Links was opened in 1973 following the clubs move from rented lands nearby and was originally designed with contributions from Eddie Hackett, Lawrie and Pennick and members. Ruddy and Craddock made considerable changes whilst routing the Glashedy Links and Nick Faldo upgraded the links in 2005/6.

The home to two championship links courses, a new 9 hole Par3 links and one of the warmest welcomes in golf– Ballyliffin Golf Club is a must when putting together an Ireland golf package with your friends.

Ballyliffin’s two courses are a must play on any golf trip to Ireland” – Rory McIlroy
