Golf Course Review

Cruit Island Golf Club is set on the rugged, wild Atlantic Way. The small inhabited island in County Donegal, Ireland is accessed by a bridge from the mainland. The course was laid out in 1986 by Michael Doherty and is one of the most scenic 9 hole golf courses in the world.

The course is a proper links golf course with clifftop views of Arranmore, the Owey Islands and Mount Errigal. Remotely located near Kincasslash, The Rosses, County Donegal, Ireland.

A forward-thinking club, it was one of the first Irish clubs to allow full membership to ladies and it was the first Irish club to appoint a woman as President in 1994.

Cruit Island Golf Club has no par 5's, seven par 4's and 2 par 3's.

Hole 1 - Par 4 - 430 yards
Hole 2 - Par 4 - 422 yards
Hole 3 - Par 4 - 330 yards
Hole 4 - Par 4 - 347 yards
Hole 5 - Par 4 - 280 yards
Hole 6 - Par 3 - 149 yards
Hole 7 - Par 4 - 320 yards
Hole 8 - Par 3 - 213 yards
Hole 9 - Par 4 - 316 yards

You probably won't have to wait for a tee time - The population on the tiny island in 2020 was just 87!
