Golf

Donegal Golf Club. Highly rated by both local and visiting golfers, this course, on the shores of Donegal Bay is approached through a forest. The windswept links are shadowed by the Blue Stack Mountains, with the Atlantic as a dramatic backdrop. The greens are large, but the rough is deep and penal, and there's a constant battle against erosion by the sea. The par-3 5th, fittingly called the "Valley of Tears," begins a run of four of the course's biggest challenges, which could have you discreetly hiding your scorecard by the time you reach the 18th. Murvagh, Laghey, Co. Donegal. 074/973–4054. www.donegalgolfclub.ie. Mar.–Oct., weekdays €70, weekends €80; Nov.–Feb., weekdays €35, weekends €40. 18 holes, 6753 yards, par 73.
