A very challenging test. Excellent fairways (when you hit them) and superb greens. A must visit course. Beautiful scenery. Clubhouse bar is decent but the food can be hit and miss.

We played Portsalon one week ago and had a great experience. What a fantastic layout! Every hole is different and challenging. Great views of either the beach or mountains on every hole. Greens were excellent! By far our favorite course in north Donegal.
