Buncrana Golf Club in County Donegal, is the oldest 9-hole links course in Ireland and delivers a challenge to the most advanced golfer and yet offers enjoyment to beginners also.

Buncrana Golf Club is located overlooking the beautiful White Strand on the shores of Lough Swilly, on the Inishowen Peninsula, County Donegal. History shows that golf was first played on the grounds from around 1834, when 3 to 4 golf holes were shaped into the existing landscape, for use by the local gentry, British Army personnel stationed in the town, and the travelling sailors who frequented Buncrana Pier. This would make the club the oldest 9-hole links golf club in Ireland.

The Buncrana Golf Club is a community based golfing facility and is somewhat unique and different to other golf clubs as it offers a golfing facility to all at inexpensive rates. As a 9-hole course it caters for all types of golfers from the beginner to the most advanced.
