Playing the Course
The European Club links was designed by noted golf course designer and writer, Pat Ruddy and is owned and operated by him with the help of his family.
Ruddy’s previous work can be found at such highly regarded venues as Ballyliffin, Druids Glen, Druids Heath, Rosapenna, Portsalon, St. Margaret’s, Donegal (Murvagh) and Montreal Island Golf Club.
Ruddy discovered the property when he surveyed Ireland’s coastline by helicopter in search of a classic golf location. The result is a magnificent addition to the world’s short supply of approximately 160 true links (51 of these are in Ireland).
European Golf Club
Amongst the links he has designed from concept to completion are The European Club, Ballyliffin Glashedy and Rosapenna Sandy Hills. He has impacted substantially at Portsalon (13 holes), Ballyliffin Old ( 7-holes), Rosapenna Old (12 holes) and Donegal (11 holes).
