The golf course at Donegal Golf Club can be found in the North West corner of Ireland in County Donegal. Found close to the quiet and quaint village of Laghey in the province of Ulster the course is set on its own peninsula (Murvagh) which overlooks the beautiful Donegal Bay. The views here are further enhanced by the amazing backdrop that the nearby Bluestack Mountains provide. Combine this with an outstanding golf course and players here really are in for a treat. 

Originally laid out in 1973, the well-known architect Eddie Hackett was the first to make his mark on the course and made the most of the natural setting. Some years later the equally famous Pat Ruddy was called in to extend the course and make a few tweaks however this spectacular links has had very little work since then which pays testament to its quality in design, nature and setting. 

Its 18 holes stretch over a distance of 6333 metres from the white tees and have a par of 73. Expect the features here to be some of the best you will see from a links course. The traditional rugged terrain has been utilised magnificently to create a tough links course that will challenge even some of the most accomplished of players.  Here you will find the layout in two loops of nine with the front nine playing in an anticlockwise direction and the back nine going clockwise and lying inside of the outward nine. 

Facilities at Donegal are excellent and the club is well equipped to deal with the needs of all players. The clubhouse boasts both a bar and restaurant as well as a well-appointed shop selling a variety of clothing and apparel. Practice facilities include a generous driving range as well as chipping and putting greens; full locker and shower facilities are also available for use by players here. 

Tee times for visitors to this course have good overall availability and are well spread across the course of the day. Green fee rates here are somewhat expensive however when you consider the quality of the course and the facilities it is good value for money. The course also hosts a number of open competitions throughout the year which are open to both visitors and members. 

The club is relatively well connected to much of the north or Ireland as well as nearby Northern Ireland. The nearest major transport hub is that of Sligo which is around 57 km south of the area. Accommodation options in the local area are numerous and should appeal to most tastes.
