Just Treats have been getting some more good golf deals out there, encouraging golfers to head a bit further than they might otherwise venture. And that's a good thing. There are too many great Irish courses that golfers have never heard of, so companies like Just Treats - and others - do Irish golf an important service by promoting not only green fee value but also the courses themselves.
I had never heard much about Portsalon Golf Club before my visit, but I am passionate about it now. I pitch the 2nd hole as the best 2nd hole in Ireland, but, in truth, it could easily be the best hole on the island. Danger, beauty, challenge, inspiration - they're all there in abundance. The holes that follow it, along the water, are almost as incredible. And then there are the dead sailors buried beneath the fairways. It all adds up to a thrilling links adventure in the depths of beautiful Donegal.

The Just Treats offer is a discount of up to 34% off two green fees - which would leave you paying €59 for a two-ball. Not bad at all when you consider the quality of the golf course - currently being 'tweaked' by Paul McGinley.
Other courses in the area:
Rosapenna (Sandy Hills and Old Tom Morris courses)
North West (links)
FYI - on the Portsalon website they're promoting the following:
Three Day Pass to Rosapenna, Letterkenny & Portsalon only €90.
