Golf Schedule

Donegal image

Dunes block the view of the Atlantic Ocean on many holes at Donegal, which is on the Murvagh Penninsula with the Bluestack Mountains in the background. However, the sound of waves crashing serves as the soundtrack for each swing. The inward loop is protected by those dunes, so take time to savor the view from the elevated tee at No. 8, a sensational par-5. The 2011 Open Champion Darren Clarke is a member here and labels the layout as one of his favorites.
Enniscrone - The Dunes image

Set along the scenic west coast of Ireland in County Sligo on a promontory that juts into Killala Bay, the Dunes at Enniscrone is a true Irish links. Hackett used the natural contours and the majestic landscape to craft this design. Altogether, 12 of the 18 holes wind through the shaggy dunes that border the coast. The course culminates with a magnificent stretch of four holes running parallel to the Atlantic Ocean. A sharp bump-and-run game is useful here.
Narin & Portnoo image

The course is situated in the beautiful seaside resort of Portnoo in South West Donegal. It is considered to be one of the finest natural links courses in Ireland, and is certainly one of the most scenic with views out to Aranmore Island and Croghy Head. Under new ownership in 2018 the links has been upgraded with the project entrusted to Gil Hanse and his team.  The changes being implemented will elevate Narin & Portnoo into one of the finest links courses in the country.

Ballyliffin - Old image

The course as we know today was opened for play in 1973. True links course with natural grasses and strategic bunkering. Avoiding the pot bunkers that lurk in the fairways is a key component of managing the course - and escaping with your score in tact. A fine layout which provides a stern test for golfers of all skill levels. The back nine features a fantastic stretch of holes bordering the ocean with stunning views out to Glashedy Rock.
Ballyliffin - Glashedy image

Often called the “Dornoch of Ireland” because of its location on the country’s extreme northern tip, this links poses a challenge that makes golfers glad they travelled the extra miles. Fantastic panoramic views of countryside and coastline are available throughout the property, Glashedy Rock sits just offshore and it’s easy to see why Glashedy has earned the reputation as Ireland’s hidden gem. Ruddy, one of the co-architects, treated this as his masterpiece throughout the years, often returning to polish and enhance an aspect.
