Old Head is quite possibly the most dramatic setting for a golf course anywhere in the world. The course takes pride of place on a dramatic promontory that juts out a full 2 miles into the Atlantic Ocean and the views are simply astounding. No less than 300 feet up, Old Head offers golf on the edge of the world and isn’t exactly the perfect course for those with a touch of vertigo! Those with a head for heights will be fine though and as you look over the edge of the cliffs, you may notice seagulls gliding below you which, while playing golf is an unforgettable experience!
