Donegal Golf Club situated at Murvagh, County Donegal is an extraordinary links golf course. The course designed by the great course architect Eddie Hackett and opened for visitors at 1959. And now it is one of Golf World’s Top 100 courses in Ireland and Great Britain.
When the Club was founded first golf course and clubhouse was in Donegal Town at Tullycullion. The Donegal Golf Club remained there until 1973. In the 70’s some club members found extremely suitable links land of the Murvagh Penninsula. Then the land was leased from the then Dept of Lands and Ireland ’s leading golf, and legendary Eddie Hackett was hired to design an 18-hole golf course on the Murvagh links.
New course and clubhouse was officially opened in 1976. After that the course have been undergone some redesign and redeveloping some holes (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 9th, 12th, 13th, 14th and the 4th).
Donegal Golf Club set a picturesque place at Murvagh peninsula surrounded by a forest of evergreens on one side and Bluestack Mountains on the other. The beautiful ocean and mountain views make the panorama around the course unequalled. The classic links design plays hard and fast across the landscape of low hills. The golf course measures 7,280 yards, so that length makes it one of the longest courses in Europe. Donegal Golf Club offers a variety of practice facilities, which are the best in Northern Ireland. Practice area in Donegal Golf Club includes Driving Range with automatic ball dispenser, a par 3 junior course, a driving net, a putting green, and a chipping green with bunkers.
