Donegal (Murvagh) Murvagh, County Donegal, Ireland

Lying in the bosom of Donegal Bay, this superb golf links occupies an elegant peninsula which is backed by the magnificent Blue Stack Mountains. Donegal golf links is presented as two loops of nine where the fairways wend their way by the Atlantic dunes and the sage green grasses of the bay. The course suits big hitters of the ball as the ever present ocean breezes ensure that it plays long and challenging most of the time. The par 3 fifth is called "The Valley of Tears" and it has proved just that for the golfer short of nerve. "Hauntingly beautiful and an excellent test of golf" is how Peter Dobereiner described Donegal.
