Not only is Portsalon a magnificent test of golf, its setting is truly breathtaking. The golden sands along Ballymastocker Bay and the majesty of Lough Swilly and the Inishowen Hills beyond provide the backdrop for almost 7000 yards that will enthrall and challenge any golfer. Redesigned in 2001 by Pat Ruddy, dune lined fairways, cannily placed bunkers and well protected greens are the hallmark of Portsalon. You will wonder then, why there are no crowded fairways or difficulty arranging tee times and why green fees are so very, very reasonable.

Tucked away on the northern shores of Lough Swilly, Knockalla Mountains provide a stunning backdrop. Linked with heather clad hills, they shield and semi circle links, creating stage like effect. Add glistering waters those golden sands 18-spectactular holes to equation you know why it is referred as “the links heaven”.
