North West Golf Club is situated in Lisfannon, Buncrana, in the Inishowen peninsula, an area of natural outstanding beauty. The Club dates back to 1891 where it was one of the founding members of the Golfing Union of Ireland (G.U.I). Measuring over 6300 yards, the links is nestled beneath the so called “Mouldy Mountains” on the shores of Lough Swilly. The ever changing light patterns ensure that the surroundings are stunning throughout the seasons. Very much like the old course at St.Andrews, the North West fairways have many humps and hollows and extremely good fescue greens with concealed run off’s that are not always visible from the fairway. The North West is rich with success along it’s 124 year path through history, the latest of these successes coming from Brian McElhinney, winning the European Amateur Championship in 2003 and British Amateur Championship in 2005 to name a few of his achievements. The club also won the All Ireland Senior Cup in 2005 and have competed well at local level in all teams events. The course prides itself on being a true links with smooth and true fescue greens, fast running fairways, wispy rough with strategically placed rivetted bunkering throughout the course. The “St.Andrews of Ireland” is a phrase that has been used to describe the scenic Links at Lisfannon and visitors to the club will not be disappointed when they tee it up at North West.

Angenehm zu spielender Platz. Vom Profil nicht spektakulär wie andere Plätze in der Region. Sehr nett bei der Anmeldung und im Club.
