At 5922 yards it is not excessively long but has been so constructed by architect, P.C. Carr, that it requires every club in the bag. As with all good courses it is pleasing to the eye - all the fairways are tree-lined and are rapidly maturing. The fifth hole at almost 500 yards around Lough Alan, with the clubhouse towering in the background, creates a magnificent setting which is complemented by excellent views of the Finn Valley and the surrounding Donegal Mountains.

History
Ballybofey golf club was formally founded on January 22nd 1957, under itís first president Mr Willie Raitt and Mr John Joe Kennedy as founder Captain. Initially the course was nine hole and was opened for play in June 1958. In the absence of a clubhouse the first presentations were made from the back of a tractor! An old wooden and corrugated iron clubhouse was soon bought and proved to be a great success in the formative years of the club with many a lively night and local story told- a friendly, hospitable atmosphere that still thrives today.

Golf Holiday in Donegal
A nine hole layout was never going to be enough for such a hard working committee though and, greatly helped by a very successful run of Friday night bingo in the Butt Hall, the club finally purchased the land for a second nine holes which were opened for play in 1978
