Greencastle Golf Club – visited Nov 2012:
We experienced great golf at this little known links course.
We booked 2 courses for our group’s November trip to Donegal’s Inishowen Peninsula – Greencastle and Ballyliffin. Our first port of call was Greencastle, that, I had been led to believe, was just an “ordinary” members’ course.
This was a tad underselling, in my view, of what turned out to be a fine links course on the shores of Lough Foyle. Although it is in a different league to the more well-known links courses, it is great value for money and well worth including in your list of courses to visit, whenever you travel to Donegal for golf.
Maybe, I left the course with a good feeling – we had great weather on the day we played (in contrast to the horrible weather we experienced next day in Ballyliffin), there were great views of Lough Foyle and I scored well. At Par 69 (5293 metres in length with 6 par 3s), it is a little short but none of this took away from our enjoyment or from the golfing challenge.
The most memorable hole for me was the par 4 12th, “Lighthouse”, which is played firstly to a valley, then uphill to the green on the downward slope towards the shoreline and lighthouse. I played driver and 9 iron (ball hopped on top of the hill and ran down to the green). Delighted to say I sank the putt for birdie. What joy!!
As a group, we ate in the clubhouse on two evenings – they have a great chef - food and service were first class. Not bad for a little member owned course on the Inishowen Peninsula near the top of Ireland! If we had a course like it in Dublin, it would compete well with the best, have lots of members and justly attract truckloads of visitors.
