Top links course

Connemara Golf Course at Ballyconneely is one of the top links courses in Ireland. Long course, very exposed to the elements. Can be very windy.

Great golf course which will test all of your game and skills. Always enjoy the challenge if Connemara links. However i have to say the price was very steep just to play a round of golf with 2 members and there wasn't a midweek open competition. Apparently the only run these in the winter. It is the only downside i... More

We stopped here for a coffee and a snack. The staff were friendly and welcome visitors not only golfers. We shared a piece of rocky road with caramel sauce. Great snack!

This is a great place to play a round of golf. the views are spectacular. Price is reasonable including club rental although the clubs are definitely vintage. My putter was missing its face. A word of caution - the par fours are really long - many over 400 yards.

What an amazing course. You can see the Atlantic from practically every hole on the course. Classic links course with high rough and great scenery with livestock and stone walls outside the course.

We played this course for the first time on a breezy day with on-and-off light showers. Much more open than other links courses we have played, with many elevated greens requiring a good short game, and elevated tees providing panoramic views. Reasonably well marked, so navigation to next tees was not too difficult, although we did get lost a couple... More

Wonderful challenge on one of Ireland's underrated links courses. The course is testing in the best of weather and the influence of the Atlantic breezes make it even more challenging. Laid as nature would have intended and without any man made additions such as needless water traps.

Beside the beauty of Connemara as a background this Course is worth a visit. Though not spectecular like some other Links in Ireland it is a true one, the turf is sort of spongy and not so hard as some other fairways, which makes it very nice to walk on. Fast and true greens, Come and play!

I loved playing this links course. It has 3 separate 9 holes courses each with their own unique charms. It has great views of the water and the course was in excellent shape. The pace of play was good since I went during the week and the staff were courteous and helpful. The only reason this didn't get 5 stars... More
