A big, bold, beautiful links, Donegal is a masterpiece of the outstanding Irish architect Eddie Hackett. Most everything is writ large at Donegal - the 7,200-yard course with its expansive fairways and greens, the panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean and the Donegal Hills, and the hospitality of the members.

Set on a peninsula in Donegal Bay and susceptible to some quite ferocious ocean winds, The Murvagh is screened from the outside world by a forest of evergreens with the Bluestack Mountains forming an imposing backdrop. The course is a mesmerizing test of links golf, unmarred by houses, trailer parks, holiday homes or development. The greens are first-rate, and the play of the links is hard and fast. Being one of the longest courses in Europe, it is ideally suited to big hitters of the ball.

Location:

Murvagh, Donegal, Co. Donegal, 10km south of Donegal Town.
