THE 2020 Portsalon Golf Club Captains, Stephen Connolly and Roseanne Logue, officially began their year in office on Sunday morning with the ceremonial Captain’s Drive-In.
They were joined by incoming vice-captains Eamonn McConigley and Iris Condron; while 112 golfers took to the course afterwards for a scramble, with outgoing gents captain Pat O’Neill leading his team to victory on the day.
Irish Golfer Top 100 revealed
There was good news for Portsalon GC this Monday morning as The Irish Golfer Magazine unveiled their ‘Top 100 Courses’ rankings for 2020.
Last year’s Open Championship venue Royal Portrush held firm as number one-rank on the island, while Ballyliffin’s Glashedy Course is top-ranked in Donegal at No.14 on the list.
We are proud and delighted to be the second-best Donegal Links on the Top 100 at No.18, with the judging panel concluding Portsalon to be ‘a Links of natural power and beauty, as well as home to one of the best holes (2nd) in the country.’
