Donegal Golf Club, located on the Murvagh peninsula in South Donegal, welcomes you to a unique golfing experience that caters for all skill levels. The course was designed by Eddie Hackett, the master of Irish golf course architecture, and is often called the Muirfield of Ireland. 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 continually changing sea breeze offers a continuing test for both pro and amateur golfer.
Surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, Donegal Bay and a designated Special Area of Conservation, Donegal Golf Club is one of the longest golf courses in Europe, measuring a massive 7,453 yards from the championship tees. It is an easy walk, and a welcome break for some from the roller coaster dunes found on other links courses. The panoramic views of Donegal Bay and the surrounding countryside are sensational. The peninsula itself is steeped in local and ancient history, with the course itself, built on land of geological significance, which was inhabited in past centuries, and the earliest of Irish maps indicate this.
Come and engage with the golfing spirits of the past, while you enjoy a truly memorable golfing experience every time you play, on one of 2011 Open Champion Darren Clarke’s “favorite courses in the world.” Take a look at our “Wild Atlantic Way” golf tour to see how you can include Donegal Golf Club into your golf vacation plans for Ireland.
