9th October 2017 - 5 Reasons Why Letterkenny is the Perfect Location for Your 2018 Society Golf Break

1)     The Golf!

Sometimes in life there can be too much choice! This is likely to be the case when you are planning your trip to Letterkenny with your society. For the groups of low handicappers, a round at Ballyliffin added to one at Rosapenna will be the ideal 1 night 2 round break.

If some of your group like to keep the courses a little less daunting, you can take the short trip to Letterkenny Golf Club added to a round at North West or Dunfanaghy.

With 7 of the top 35 courses in Ireland less than an hour from the front door of McGettigans Hotel, you may be coming back to Donegal’s largest town for a few years before you have ticked all the must play courses off your list. 

2)     Après Golf

Anyone familiar with Letterkenny will know that the town can provide a lively night out to say the least. After a long day on the course, renowned bars such as McGettigans in the Clanree are ideal for some good food, sport on TV and free flowing pints. For the more adventurous group members, a night out in Letterkenny will not disappoint. Warehouse Bar & Kitchen is guaranteed to have live music & atmosphere and will keep the group going until the small hours. Just make sure that you get back to the hotel in time for a few hours kip before your morning tee time! 

3)     Value for Money

Golf in Donegal has been a well-kept secret for years now. While other parts of Ireland will guarantee steep green fees and jammed fairways, this will be far from what you will find during your break in Letterkenny. Green fees in Donegal are a fraction of the cost of comparable courses elsewhere in Ireland and if you stay at McGettigans Hotel, we can put your package together ensuring value and excellent tee times. World class golf at a fraction of the cost, what are you waiting for?! 

4)     The People

Didn’t they say one time that in Donegal ‘It’s different up here’. In this little corner of Ireland, it must be something in the air that makes the natives so welcoming! Maybe it is the novelty of our friends from around the country finding out about us. Whatever the reasons, Donegal folk still love to hear a new accent and will make sure that you are well looked after. Whether it is on the first tee at 9am or for last orders at 3am, you will never feel unwanted on your golf break in Letterkenny. 

5)     Donegal Has it All!

For the members of the group that are not total golf nuts, a day with no golf can be easily filled.  McGettigans Hotel is located at the gateway to Letterkenny so there is a plethora of sights, sounds and sessions to be found within a short drive. Whether you fancy some surfing, rock climbing, horse riding, fishing, diving or just a walk on the beach, you won’t have to travel far. For the adventurous groups of lads, you can find paintballing, karting or adventure centres within a short distance.

One things is for sure, you will never be bored on your group visit to Letterkenny you just have to ensure you make it back home in one piece!
