The Donegal Golf Club offers a unique, challenging course that tests the skills of the most seasoned of golfers. The club is situated on the Murvagh Peninsula, with a commanding view of Donegal Bay. Similarly situated to the legendary Saint Andrews course, the 73-par 18-hole course offers great challenges along with a gorgeous and tranquil natural setting; it is a challenge to every golfer and a true test of skill.
Named frequently in Golf World’s list of Ireland and Great Britain’s Top 100 Courses, the course was designed by a true legend in the field of course architecture, Eddie Hackett. Its reputation was only enhanced under the development of Pat Ruddy; it is a course that is essential for any golfer visiting Donegal.
Sometimes described as being the Muirfield of Ireland, the Donegal course features similar terrain and is constructed of two 9-hole loops. The championship course measures 7,300 yards, while the medal course is 7,000 yards in length. Regardless of which course is played, a long course requires a serious golfer to be at their best. Less serious golfers will also enjoy the course, especially on a hole-by-hole basis.
