North West Golf Club – outstanding golf on the Wild Atlantic Way

North West Golf Club runs along the shores of Lough Swilly on the Wild Atlantic Way.

Established as an 18 hole links course in 1891 it is one of the 9 founding members of the Golfing Union of Ireland. North West has several outstanding holes and overall will be both challenging and enjoyable to golfers of all handicaps.

Kevin Markham, Editor of Destination Golf Ireland writes "Links subtlety and ingenuity might be the only words you need to sum up this gem to the Inishowen peninsula.
Nearby Ballyliffin may receive all the plaudits but North West has something different and special in its makeup…and that dates back to the bygone age of golf course design, as 2016 saw the club celebrating 125 years. The terrain here is low and bumpy…idiosyncratic and unpredictatable..and perfect for what links golf is all about. Use your brain and you can play well here, but given the occasional invisible hollow and semi-blind approach, not to mention the speed and natural undulations to greens, you need to play sharp golf from start to finish. Lastly, North West may look flat from the road but you’ll quickly discover that every hole is brimming with character."
