Lying between beautiful Lough Swilly and Moldy Mountain, North West Golf Club, Buncrana, County Donegal, has been called the St Andrews of Ireland.

North West Golf Club is one of the nine founding members of the Golfing Union of Ireland (GUI) in 1891. There is much in common between the course at St Andrews and North West Golf Club, such as concealed runs and bumps approaching the greens that look easy enough to run onto. The surrounding scenery is simply magnificent and the greens are second to none.

North West Golf Club is ranked number 68 in Golf World's 2021 top 100 of Ireland's 495 golf courses.

In 2021, the traditional links course was included in Links Magazine as one of Ireland's 15 hidden gem courses and it also made Golf World’s Top 100 Fun Courses to play in Great Britain and Ireland.
