European Touring Professional’s Paul McGinley and Shane Lowry have both visited and played Letterkenny Golf Club.

Paul, Captain of the winning Ryder Cup Team in 2014, marvelled at the transformation of the course following the Club’s investment of over a million Euro’s on drainage and course improvements in 2007.

Followed by a large gallery Paul took time to admire the spectacular views across the Swilly Estuary and thoroughly enjoyed his round on the testing course.

Shane visited in late 2013 in the middle of a winter storm and whilst unable to play a full round took time to take on some of the risk/reward shots on the course nearly driving the Par 4 first hole across the trees and lake. Little did we know he was practicing for his spectacular approach shot to the 18th green on his way to winning the WGC Bridgestone Invitational in 2015
