Golf in Ireland |Drone Video “Old Head Kinsale”
“The GolfBirdie App will be launched this summer!”
We approached the course on an amazing day with not a cloud in the sky and the sea looking like something out of a movie scene.
The whole atmosphere of this pristine links is a pleasure from the beginning from being greeted by the gate keeper upon arrival to being warmly welcomed by the starter and caddies on the first tee. Not forgetting the breath taking view on the drive to the club house.
Watch the HD drone video below, the full 18 holes will be available to view on the GolfBirdie App.
Old Head Golf Links is built on a 220-acre diamond of land, jutting out over two miles into the Atlantic Ocean. The promontory is almost an island with numerous caves running beneath your feet as you play the course. The links and practice area occupy 180 acres and the remaining 40 acres of unspoilt cliff (rising in places to over 300 feet) frame the course.
Designed and constructed by a unique team, Ron Kirby – former designer at Jack Nicklaus’s Golf Design Services, Paddy Merrigan – Australian course architect and agronomist, Liam Higgins – one of Ireland’s best known golf professionals currently on the Seniors Tour, the late Eddie Hackett – former Irish golf professional and golf course designer, the late Dr. Joe Carr – Ireland’s most successful international amateur golfer and finally, Haulie O’Shea – building contractor.
Old Head, par 72, comprises five Par 5s, five Par 3s and eight Par 4s – stretching to over 7,200 yards from the tips, with a minimum of six tees per hole. Nine holes play along the cliff tops, and all eighteen holes provide stunning ocean views. With the ever-changing sea breezes, the course provides a stern test to the touring pro and the high handicapper alike.
Old Head Golf Links is designed as a walking course where Members and Guests are encouraged to walk the links with a Caddie. Old Head’s Caddie Programme is among one of the most extensive and professional worldwide.
The course is set up, depending on conditions, on a daily basis. Facilities include a warm up range with complimentary golf balls and a short game practice area. Old Head has a team of fully trained outside services staff to cater for your every need.
The level of service and beautiful setting is the perfect combination to allow you to have the perfect day of Golf.
