Having played the Glashedy in the morning I thought we may have already played the best of the two courses and the afternoon was just going to be a post lunch knock around but I was wrong. The Old is every bit as good as its bigger brother. It's not as long as the other course and much flatter but this doesn't make it any less challenging, it just means it's more playable (even enjoyable) for the average player. The fairways are very traditional links and the greens were a joy to putt on. I can't recommend Ballyliffin highly enough as a resort, 2 great courses, great food and service and the Guiness isn't too bad either.
