Bundoran Golf Club tumbles across the rugged Donegal Bay coastline, providing views of the Atlantic to the west and the majestic Dartry Mountains to the east. No matter where you are on the course you're bound to have a stunning view. The undulating landscape is covered with dunes, providing a true links feel to the landscape. The layout is two loops of nine that play back towards the clubhouse. As you move further inland, the holes become more parkland in nature, providing an interesting contrast to the links holes. Built in 1894, it is one of Ireland's oldest golf courses. It was conceived during a big boom in golf construction that occurred in Ireland in the late 19th century. The course has steadily provided a fair and challenging game over the years, especially after a renovation in 1930 that brought it to championship standards, but it started receiving a lot of attention when Christy O' Connor became the resident pro in the 1950s. Bundoran Golf Club has since been a favorite amongst locals.
