Donegal Golf Club is located on the Murvagh peninsula in Donegal Bay 3 miles south of Donegal Town.

The golf club is known as Murvagh Links by many people due to its location on the Murvagh peninsula.

Donegal Golf Club is isolated from the outside world by two bodies of water. A forest of evergreens on one side is washed by the great Atlantic Ocean while it meets the calmer waters of Donegal Bay on the other side.

It is one of the longest golf courses in Ireland and Europe and it is ideally suited to big hitters of the ball. This is a real challenge not to be missed.

Originally designed by the legendary Irish golf course architect, Eddie Hackett, the course is continually being moulded and enhanced by the ‘master of links design’, Pat Ruddy.

Highlights

Darren Clarke, the 2011 Open Champion and member of the Course, states that Donegal Golf Club is ‘one of my favourite courses in the world’.

Facilities

Facilities include a driving range, warm up area, and putting, chipping and bunker practice areas.

Food & Drink

Take a break before or after your game of golf in the roomy and inviting bar and restaurant. Located on the first floor it gives you stunning views of the golf course and its surroundings.

Things to do

In December 1811, the HMS Frigate Saldanha (British Naval Ship) was wrecked off the northern coast with the only survivor being the ship’s parrot. After this disaster the Fanad Head Lighthouse was built to help guide ships and sailors safely on their journeys. You can visit it today and take in the visitor centre.

Sliabh Liag (Slieve League) Cliffs are one of the North Coast’s most iconic attractions. They’re Europe’s highest marine cliffs, and offer spectacular views of imposing mountains, picturesque islands and beautiful bays.
