Derry, the second largest city in Northern Ireland, lies on the West bank of the River Foyle and offers golfers embarking on an Irish golf tour the best of both worlds; top class golf played in some of the most stunning countryside Ireland and Northern Ireland have to offer and the vibrant sights and sounds of the city.
Sitting astride the flowing waters of the River Foyle, Derry is a charming 6th Century city that today resonates to the sounds of the 21st Century. Derry is a centre of culture and creativity, and is now as famous for its fresh modern outlook as it is for the timeless quality of its craic. Derry has a rich and varied cultural heritage and the City Walls are home to a number of museums, galleries and theatres, as well as thriving musical and literary scenes.
While the city itself has plenty to offer, it is the nearby golf courses that golfers are really interested in. Along with hidden gems such as City of Derry Golf Club and Faughan Valley, both of which are a real delight to play, Derry is situated perfectly to allow golfers to venture out in search of some of the most famous and finest golf courses in Europe.
Across the border in the Republic of Ireland, Rosapenna and Ballyliffin await while just an hour’s drive from Derry in Northern Ireland you can find the likes of Castlerock, Portstewart and the world famous Royal Portrush. Needless to say, Derry and the surrounding area are a golfer’s heaven.
