Cruit Island, pure joy. Golf on “The Wild Atlantic Way” that was every moment of magnificent vistas, wild, thrilling Irish winds, blind shots and downhill doglegs, chasms to cross and flags pinned to the boundary of land and sea. Every step a discovery, filled with anticipation. Cresting a mound, concealing the target, to find your ball safely nestled in the cradle of the green. It is safe to say that, “Golf is fun! Cruit Island is a view of the magnificence of untamed golf.”

We had an amazing experience at your facility. Thank you so much for all of your support in arranging our access to this magical property. None of us will ever forget it! We are getting the word out across the pond also.

Just a quick word of sincere thanks on behalf of our foursome that visited on Monday July 17th. As much as I loved it before, it was even better with the improvements you made on #3, great additional tee box on #6 (the best par 3 in all of Ireland and Scotland!), etc. It was also in better condition than all the courses we played with the possible exception of the European Club. My three friends who were visiting for the first time were truly astounded by the jaw-dropping beauty of your club and couldn’t stop talking about it! Please pass on my thanks to the staff.
Thank you for the hospitality at your club. I had an amazing round of golf with your president with entertaining hours and quite good golf.
I enjoyed it very much visiting Cruit island GC.
Have a good season.
Cruit Island Golf Club visit was the best. We drove down from Rosapenna, but worth every mile. Little bit of sunshine and a little blowy but thoroughly enjoyed it. Francie alone was worth the trip. Had a great pint. Thanks for the hospitality! Would like to come back.

Thanks for the support last Friday at Cruit Island Golf Club. It was really big fun for me, to play my “2nd challenge” over there. Although there were quite a lot of players ahead and behind me, it worked out fine for me as “advanced beginner”. I even had two pars on hole No. 3 and 4. But hole No. 6 is the greatest challenge. My good friend Brigid walked with me and took some nice photographs. I am very much looking forward to come back next spring. Take care and all the best.
I had the absolute pleasure of playing Cruit last Thursday. My husband and I were completely overwhelmed by the beautiful scenery and spectacular surroundings. The course was immaculate and the golf, good or bad, only played second fiddle to the whole experience. I would travel a thousand miles on foot just to witness those incredible views which are by far the most majestic and awe inspiring I have ever seen. From start to finish it was an incredible experience. The young girl that took our entry fee was friendly, polite, welcoming and informative. The course, as I’ve said above left me speechless ( which doesn’t happen very often believe me!) when we finished our 18 holes, having experienced all weathers but thankfully mostly dry, we had a delicious culinary experience! The chef, a young, friendly dote of a girl cooked up a storm and left us wishing we were hungry enough to start all over again!!! Crab toes( we call them claws!), Killybegs mackerel, brill and garlic prawns, cooked to perfection and apple crumble just out of the oven…indescribable!!! Thank you seems inadequate but simply… thank you. We will endeavor to return as soon as possible. Keep up the good work.

I had the pleasure of playing Cruit early on 12th July and certainly enjoyed it. It is a beautiful place and a fun 9 hole. Thank you for the opportunity! Take it over Adare Manor any day of the week!! All the best
Just a thank you. Played your course Sunday. Worth the drive from our base at Donegal town. Superb course, friendly staff and good food.

Thanks very much for accommodating us so well at Cruit GC last week. The weather improved on the Thursday and was glorious for the Classic on the Friday. It was lovely to see the course so busy and everyone was so friendly for the very well organized event. It was my guest’s first visit and rest assured they will be back next year. Many thanks again and I wish you all the best for the future.
My wife and I were lucky enough to get to play at Cruit last week and thoroughly enjoyed the course – in fact it was truly amazing- you really have a gem there. Thanks so much for accommodating us and please pass on our thanks to the team there who looked after us so well. We also met Denis club captain who introduced himself and made us welcome. Thanks again.

We had a great day at Cruit Island. You have a great course. More important you have a great team. Can I thank you for a great welcome and can you thank the President again for taking the time to meet us and see us off at the first tee?
