Donegal Golf Course

Donegal Golf Course is a links course built on a promontory of 182 acres that extends out into the Atlantic Ocean. The course, built on land of geological significance, was inhabited in past centuries, and the earliest of Irish maps indicate this.

The course, a par 73 for both men and women, consists of five Par 5’s, four Par 3’s and nine Par 4’s, stretching over 7400 yards from the tips, with five regulation tees from each hole, plus a beginner tee. The outside loop plays along the dunes and the ocean, providing stunning views of the surrounding area. The inner loop is more protected, however the constantly changing sea breeze provides a continuing test for both pro and amateur golfer. Despite its length, the course is an easy walk, broken up by the outstanding views, wildlife and display of fauna and flora that continues to change and evolve throughout the year.

Originally designed by the legendary Irish golf course architect, Eddie Hackett, the course is continually being molded and enhanced by the ‘master of links design’, Pat Ruddy. Darren Clarke, the 2011 Open Champion and member of the Course, states that Donegal Golf Club is ‘one of my favourite courses in the world’.

Located on the beautiful Murvagh peninsula in Donegal Bay, hence it is generally known as Murvagh. The golf links is cut off from the outside world by a forest of evergreens washed on one side by the great Atlantic Ocean and by Donegal Bay on the other. It has panoramic views of the Bluestack Mountains in South Donegal and the beach that runs along the Atlantic border is one of the finest in Ireland
