Course Review and Comments

This is the finest 9 hole links in the world!
This may not be the most manicured or sexy course you can play, but it is without doubt the most naturally visually stunning course where every hole is a joy to play. It is a picturesque Donegal island surrounded by other islands and sea cliffs.Some of the holes are just simply breathtaking.

The 2nd Hole is a tough par 4 with an elevated tee box (with a full 360 degree view of ocean). A tight fairway surrounded by long sea grass and wind from any direction, makes your drive golf's equivelent to Russian Roulette. It's tough but so enjoyable.

The 3rd Hole is par 4 where the driveable green (dependant on the wind) is obscured by a hill. As you come to the top of the hill you are blessed with a full view of ocean and a green set on a sea cliff.

The 6th Hole is without the most beautiful par 3 I have ever played. From one cliff across a lagoon to another cliff. I've played this course 5 times and I have used a driver and 9 iron from the tee to par it. Stunning!
