I played at Portsalon in the Donegal Links Challenge this past spring. It poured the entire time, but the golf course stood up well. Fantastic mix of holes with some spectacular views, especially #2. The back nine offers a couple of tree lined holes which is odd for seaside Irish golf, but interesting. I enjoyed the round in spite of... More

Great history. All about golf here at Portsalon GC and its a very good course and well worth visiting....however if you want food then this is a place to avoid. Firstly we booked for a party of 6 and asked what time last order was, "sometimes 8 or maybe 9pm" was the rather vague reply, ok we will be there... More

Have eaten on two occasions quite recently, once at Easter and last week. Dinner at Easter was ok but...... dessert: fresh cream was 'off' and .......... was still charged full price for all the desserts despite making the staff aware! Last week the steaks were full of fat, tasteless and definitely weren't as described, frozen veg, sauté potatoes greasy and... More

A cracking test of golf over a superb links course. Quite a few holes with long narrow fairways. Starting with the second you can either think or fire your way round this tricky course.

Lunch at Portsalon Golf Club was the low point of an otherwise superb holiday. The catering is straight out of the 1970s, the service slow and indifferent and the decor looks like every expense has been spared - grubby, worn carpets and stained seats abound. The food was the sort of over-cooked, tasteless slop reminiscent of school dinners. The hake... More

The golf course is one of the best in the north west of Ireland. In excellent condition and very reasonable green fees. Buggies and trolleys are available. The clubhouse has a well stocked bar and very good restaurant facility - the menu was very satisfying and the staff were charming. Well worth a visit.

This is a golf course for people who want some peace and quiet while golfing. Go to Portsalon on a Monday Tuesday Thursday or Friday and you will feel you are alone on the golf course. This is a real test off Yellow or white if you choose green then fairways a within reach of the handicap golfer.
