Narin and Portnoo Golf Club- The One that Got Away

In a recent post, I told of Connor Mallon accepting the position of Head Golf Professional at Narin and Portnoo Golf Club in County Donegal, Ireland. Connor is a well deserving guy who we wish well in his new position. What I did not know was that Narin and Portnoo apparently is a very good golf course. We came close to this course in 2003 when we played the great little nine hole course Cruit Island which is near the Donegal Airport at Carrickfin. We were not far from this course in July of 2008 when we drove from Donegal to Ballyliffin.

If we had just turned west at Donegal we would have gone through the picturesque little fishing village of Killybegs and then a short drive would have gotten us to Narin and Portnoo. A good website is a great advertisement for a good golf course. This is how I found Cruit Island in 2003. Now Narin and Portnoo has invested in a website that is first class and gives great photos of the course. Also from the size of the purse paid in their Pro-Am event played a month before the Ballyliffin Pro-Am this is quite a popular place. The picture above is from Narin and Portnoo #10.
