Set on a peninsula in Donegal Bay and susceptible to some quite ferocious ocean winds, this course is a mesmerizing test of links golf and arguably one of the finest links in Irish golf.
Described famously by an English golf journalist as 'hauntingly beautiful', it is everything you want it to be; tough, enjoyable, full of surprises and wonderfully inviting regardless of your skill level. There are great views of the Blue Stack Mountains and a wide variety of holes to enjoy during your round. Perhaps the finest of the lot is the short fifth, aptly called 'The Valley of Tears'.
For 9 holes we needed 3 hours. Since two slow 4 er Flight played before us. Playing through was not an issue for us! Instead of 4 electric cars, only 3 were roadworthy! ️Batteries not loaded! The offered as a replacement car, was also broken after two holes! ️Genervt we have finished our round after 9 holes Shame. The place is better than the organization! ️! ️
Even if the place is not that old - it's a really nice linkscourse. And after Carne, Enniscrone and Sligo probably the easiest of our links course. That also did good once. Although here, too, the fairways are very hilly and if you do not know the place, you will find the ball somewhere else after a supposedly good blow. The dune grass, on the other hand, is fair, being relatively short. So that the balls are usually found again. Like in Sligo - which I've never experienced before, the ball should be in one of the water channels, there are ball fishing everywhere. Otherwise, there are also many blind strokes, and you have to be surprised where the ball landed. We play with our hickory clubs and arrived in knickerbockers according to our standards. The president of the golf club welcomed us personally. The members of the club and the staff were super friendly and they quickly got into conversation.
We spontaneously decided to play a round on the way to Rosapenna in Donegal! Pleasantly surprised, extremely friendly and helpful Staff. The course offers lots of fun with interesting holes and lightning fast greens. On some holes, the wind affects the game and you are often looking for your balls! The view was great! All in all for us a beautiful Golftag!
