  • Fantastic course. Short but tricky. Fantastic scenery and well worth a visit. Will probably take longer than usual to complete a round due to the scenery (not the poor play )  more »
  • Well good points and bad. The course is a 9 hole but you can of course play 18. If the gods are with you then this course is just perfect, however if like us the wind is gusty then you will have your ...  more »

  • Superb 9 hole course with some of the most spectacular views along the Wild Atlantic Way. Fairways are good and greens are fast and well maintained! Golfnow hot deals available here. Excellent busy course!
  • A lovely clean premises, beautiful panoramic views out to sea thro the large windows of the clubhouse. Friendly barman serves a nice pint of the "black beverage" national drink.Worth a visit
  • Absolutely fantastic golfcourse with a lot of surprise and always stunning views. And on top very friendly people. Thanks!
  • A little piece of golfing heaven at the far edge of Europe - a 9 hole course open to the elements and adjacent to the Atlantic Ocean that at first sight appears a simple golfing test.But as we all know appearances can be deceptive and what looks simple is in fact a difficult test of judgment,skill and indeed fitness because most surely this at times gentle rolling course will find you out as surely as night follows day and before you realise you've finished your first 9 and are ready to embark on the second 9 which is the same loop of 9 holes but largely played from slightly different perspectives and thus creating an ingenious 18 hole test of golfìng skill and expertise exposed to the elements every day but on a sunny day offering spectacular views of the far off Donegal Hills and wide expanse of beaches on the opposite peninsula from which modern aircraft fly from and to Donegal Airport,currently the 2nd most spectacular Airport in the world.
