 Old Head Golf Links       http://oldhead.com/    One of the most incredible golf courses in the world in the place where it all began. We understand that golf was 'invented' in Scotland, not Ireland. (Nonetheless, the Irish have embarrassed golf as it is a Gaelic - not English - sport, and the Irish have gone on to establish some of the most prestigious golf links in the world. Because golf is a Scottish sport, the Gaelic Athletic Association of Ireland - the 'G.A.A.' - allow their members to play golf ... whereas GAA members are banned from playing 'foreign' (English) sports such as cricket.)
