    I was on a family trip to Ireland and on day 3 we stopped in Donegal. I skipped the bus trip and took a cab to Donegal Golf Club. I called the night before and asked for an early tee time as the family was leaving around noon. The pro shop said we don't open until 8 but come on out and settle up after you are done. Played the course in rain and wind with no score card and no idea where I was going. Still had a great time on a great course

    I had reserved a tee time over the internet directly through their website.. I had specifically asked to be placed in a group because I would be arriving by myself I had made the reservation 3 months in advance so their shopuld have been no problem with this arrangement..
    When I arrived, I was placed by myself,
    between two foursomes, which made my
    round most unpleasant. I'walked off the course after nine holes.. I contacted
    the pro shop about this and did not get any response..
    will golf again in Ireland but not at Donegal...

    This is Darren Clarkes favourite link course in Ireland and a beauty it is. Well laid out with little room to hit wayward shots on most holes. A tester of a course coupled by the Donegal weather.
    Value for money? Yes
    Welcoming? Most definately

    I played Donegal Golf Club for the first time around ten years ago. My friends and I enjoyed the course so much it became the start of an annual pilgremage. The staff and members add to the experience with their laid back friedliness.

    I played Donegal in July 1997. The course was in great condition and I enjoyed every hole. Played with a scottish bloke who`d played there years before and he`d been looking forward to playing Donegal again. OK its no Ballybunion or Waterville but its fantastic value for money. Next time I travel to Ireland from `down under` I will definetly go back to Donegal.Graeme Edwards (Aust)

    I Played Donegal for the first time in October 2000. Being a member of a parkland I wanted to play some winter Links golf and avoid some of the mud. Murvagh (Donegal) turned out to be a great retreat. The course was in super condition, especially for this time of the year. The course isn't quite up to the likes of Ballyliffen but it does give you a chance to score. Of particular note has to be the Par 3 5th ...just short of 200 yards and its all carry good hole as you'll find the world over. Worth a visit.

    I played the course and 12 others in the west of Ireland in May of 1999. Although it could be a great course, Donegal's condition was the worst of the 13. The fairways were full of un-repaired divots. (I am not one of those Americans who expects to see American conditions everywhere, but this was very disappointing. In contrast I loved Enniscrone and Rosses Point along with Tralee, Lahinch, Waterville etc.) I hope to get back to Ireland, but I won't go out of my way to play Donegal again.
