Portsalon Golf Club remains one of Ireland's best kept secrets. This secluded golf course sits along threee golden beaches of Ballymastocker Bay at the tip of the Fanad Peninsula with a backdrop provided by Lough Swilly. The links layout features dune-lined fairways and well protected greens. The fairways are also tighter than those you would normally find on a links course. The golf course wastes no time introducing golfers to its many challenges. The six opening holes on the front nine play into prevailing winds. The back nine is marginally less challenging. It climbs to higher ground away from the dunes, playing more like a parkland course. In addition to the excellent round, the course is also memorable for its stunning views of the bay and the surrounding Knockalla mountains.
