Ballybunion Golf Club - Cashen Course
6,216 yards (5,682 metres), Par 72 Links course.

The Cashen course is a very exciting and beautiful link course. Designed by Robert Trent Jones it is as demanding in shot making as its sister course. Playing conditions usually change from day to day depending on the prevailing winds blowing in from the Atlantic Ocean. Services: Professional available. Tuition can be provided. Clubs can be hired. Caddies available. Full dining facilities.
 
Ballybunion Golf Club - Old Course
6,593 yards (6027 metres), Par 71, Links course.

The Old Course is consistently rated by the top professional golfers and top golf journalists as being amongst the best ten courses in the world. A championship links course of great quality with each hole having its own distinctive feature. The legendary Tom Watson described it as "the best in the world". High praise indeed for this magnificent test of golf which meanders menacingly through massive dunes on the shores of the Atlantic. Services: Professional available. Tuition can be provided. Clubs can be hired. Caddies available. Full dining facilities.

Lahinch Golf Club
5,653 yards (5,186 metres), Par 70, 18 hole, Links course.

Situated at the opposite side of the road from the old course, the castle course although a less formidable challenge still presents its own brand of toughness with cleverly positioned bunkers and water hazards to trap the unsuspecting golfer. Services: Professional available. Tuition can be provided. Clubs can be hired. Caddies available. Full dining facilities.
 
Doonbeg Golf Club
Course architect, Greg Norman calls Doonbeg's linksland "the best piece of property I have ever seen". His course winds through massive sand dunes along 1.5 miles (2.4km) of cresent-shaped beach, and the ocean is visible from almost every hole. The site is being developed by Kiawah Development Partners with Landmark National, who last teamed up at The Ocean Course on Kiawah Island, site of the 1991 Ryder Cup Matches. The club is located on the main coastal road (N67) between Ballybunion and Lahinch.
