Par 73, yardage 7,244. 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 hole, aptly called the 'Valley of Tears'.
