Golfing in Northwest Ireland
The Northwest region is the most remote and ruggedly beautiful area in Ireland. It boasts of more native Irish speakers than in any other area and ensures a distinctly Irish experience. Northwest Ireland was named the European Golf Destination of the Year in 2011 by the International Association of Golf Tour Operators. Natural beauty surrounds the golfer, whether it is Ballyliffin’s breathtaking views of the Inishowen Peninsula, Narin and Portnoo Golf Club with sweeping view of Gweebarra Bay or Donegal Golf Club located on the lovely Murvagh Peninsula. Lough Erne Resort is located on is very own 600 acre peninsula and combines old world charm and new world luxury. The golf history of the area is substantial as golfers have been travelling to Rosapenna since the late 19th century and Portsalon Golf Club is one of nine founding members of the Golfing Union of Ireland established in 1891. These lush emerald peninsulas bordered with the deeply indented coastline will provide a remarkable golfing experience.
