This was the 2nd course our society played on the Inishowen peninsula for our now annual visit to Donegal. Being our last trip for the year, we always seek out good courses that offer value for money. North West definitely fitted the bill.
Built on a very narrow sandy strip adjacent to Lough Swilly, you need to be very accurate from tee to green to score well on this course. Rough is quite long and flat in places, which makes it very difficult to find wayward balls. That being said, the course was in great condition, scenery fantastic and the terrain relatively flat, leaving us with only the wind and difficult rough to worry about.
All in all an enjoyable course but watch out for occasional criss-crossing fairways and tees box signs advising golfers to give way to players on other tees (even though it’s not altogether clear to visitors just where the tees, to which the signs refer, are located).
We all enjoyed snacks and drinks in the well appointed, modern clubhouse after our round.
This is a long established course and I was a little surprised to learn that this club was a founder member of the Golfing Union of Ireland (GUI).
