Take a break from the windswept links conditions with a round or two at Letterkenny Golf Course – the North West’s premier parkland course.

Challenges aplenty are to be found on this stunning golf course which is located on the banks of the Swilly estuary. Interspersed with glassy lakes and mature trees, Letterkenny Golf Course is a peaceful place to test your golfing skill – whatever your handicap.

Former Ryder Cup Team captain and European Tour professional Paul McGinley has played the course on several occasions. He marvelled at the transformation following an investment of almost €2m around 2007.

PGA and European Tour Professional Shane Lowry, who won the WGC Bridgestone Invitational in 2015, visited the course in late 2013 to play some tough practice shots in the middle of a winter storm.

The first eleven holes are mostly flat and surrounded by picturesque, wooded countryside. The fairways are tree lined and playable all year while meandering streams grace many of the holes.
