Donegal Golf Club (Murvagh): Another in the fine array of challenging and at times rugged links courses located in the north and west of Ireland and definitely one that will be enjoyed by all links enthusiasts. Lovely views abound, while on the course, there are no end of very good golf holes and some really tough ones, not least the par-5 8th and the par-3 16th. When the wind blows, this course, like others designed by Eddie Hackett, can be a real brute. Whatever the weather, Donegal Murvagh will keep your interest level high and demands top-quality course management to score well.
