Rory McIlroy said "Ballyliffin's two courses are a must play on any golf trip to Ireland"
Ballyliffin is Ireland's northernmost golf club, and while its two golf courses may differ greatly in character, they are both of outstanding quality making them a must on any golf tour Co. Donegal.
Both The Old Links and Glashedy Links at Ballyliffin Golf Club are excellent challenges. Revered and well-ranked amongst the UK and Ireland's Top 100 Golf Courses, the layouts have been sculpted by golfing greats including Pat Ruddy, Tom Craddock and Sir Nick Faldo.
Set within the picturesque countryside of County Donegal, golfers heading here can enjoy links golf at it's finest. While The Glashedy Links will take the plaudits as the Irish Open host in 2018 and the venue of a host of top amateur and professional tournaments, the Old is every bit a championship links experience with Rory McIlroy remarking that a day playing both courses at Ballyliffin was a must for anyone visiting Ireland. High-praise indeed!
