Ballyliffen Golf Course

Located in the far north of Donegal on the Inishowen Peninsula, golf has been played here since the 16th century. The road to Ballyliffen via Letterkenny & Buncrana will guide you through some of Inishowens 100 mile scenery.

It was once the best kept secret in golf, but Ballyliffin has recently been described as “The Ballybunion of the North”. Situated close to Malin Head on Donegal’s Inishowen Peninsula, Ireland’s most northerly links comprises 305 acres of spectacular duneland and is practically surrounded by rolling hills and mountains with the only other boundary being the Atlantic ocean.

Faldo described the Old Links at Ballyliffen as “the most natural golf course I have ever seen”, and club members will proudly boast that the chief architect was Mother Nature.

The designers Pat Ruddy and Tom Craddock were blessed with such fine natural terrain when they set about enhancing Ballyliffen into a new 36 hole resort. The addition of Glashedy Links which measures in excess of 7000 yards to the Old Links course makes this destination a must for the golf traveller.

Local Interest
1 mile away is Dunluce Castle built on the edge of a cliff in the 16th Century on the north Antrim coast by Richard de Burgh, Earl of Ulster.

3 miles away is the Giants Causeway.A natural wonder whose six-sided basalt columns were formed by volcanic eruptions thousands of years ago. Over 40,000 hexagonal columns, some with four, five, seven, and eight sides, create unique shapes. Some are 40 feet high and 90 feet thick.

Just up the road is Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, (swinging bridge) as it extends over an 80-foot ravine above the sea between the mainland and a small island. The bridge is accessible via a one-mile walk along a cliff path. It is in position during fishing season only (April - September).

40 miles away is the walled city of Derry
