Golf on the Wild Atlantic Way
Nestled on the western shores of Sheephaven Bay with its blue flag beaches and stunning scenery, Dunfanaghy Golf Club sits on the edge of the picturesque, vibrant village of Dunfanaghy in the shadow of Muckish Mountain. Golf has been played on the seaside links of Dunfanaghy for over 100 years. The course was laid out in 1906 by Mr Harry Vardon, six times winner of the British Open. Many years later a young boy named Paul McGinley learned to play golf on the fairways of Dunfanaghy. That young boy became Europe's Ryder Cup Captain in 2014. Paul remains a regular visitor to the area and is a great supporter of Dunfanaghy Golf Club. As a true links course, Dunfanaghy Golf Course offers year-round golfing.
