Golf Course/
Donegal - Murvagh

Donegal Golf Club at Murvagh, Co Donegal is an outstanding links golf course that is a true test to any golfer's abilities. Designed by the legendary course architect, Eddie Hackett, it is continually featured in golf rankings around the globe. The course's reputation has been further enhanced by the new design of Pat Ruddy.

The classic 18-hole course at Donegal is isolated on the Murvagh Penninsula and is one of the longest in Ireland and Europe. The 6,344 metre course requires strength and precision to conquer its colossal length.

The 5th hole is called “valley of Tears” and rightfully so. Wedged back amidst the dunes, this hole is a 174 metre par-3 that will surely offer a challenge.

Known as the Muirfield of Ireland, the course at Murvagh is comprised of two loops of nine holes. The first loop of nine holes is on the outside, while the second nine compse an inner loop running in the opposite direction. This interesting design is just one of the many reasons that Donegal at Murvagh captivates golfers of all types and levels.

2011 British Open winner Darren Clarke said of Donegal Golf Club: “It's one of my favourite courses in the world.” Surely this recommendation alone is reason enough to add Donegal to your itinerary. The course at Murvagh is a truly amazing experience that you will not want to miss out on.
