County Sligo Golf Club
Thursday, 15 September, 2016
Our picturesque and challenging championship links is over 100 years old and is recognised as one of Ireland’s greatest courses. It is one of the most popular golf destinations in Ireland and when you experience its charms you will understand why. The club is the home of the famous West of Ireland Open amateur championship played every Easter since 1923. It has hosted many other prestigious events including the Home Internationals, the Irish Close and the Irish Professional Matchplay Championship.
The course boasts one of the most scenic locations in Ireland perched on cliffs that tower over three expansive beaches overlooking the Atlantic. The panoramic mountain and ocean views are spectacular but they pale in comparison to the stunning scenery provided by Benbulben, an enormous limestone rock formation that the area is known for.
Besides the great views, the golf course offers an excellent round. The traditional links layout, designed by Harry Colt, utilises the natural contours of the dune-covered landscape rather than moving large amounts of earth during its design. The end result is a course filled with dramatic undulations, elevated tees, and raised plateau greens.
County Sligo Golf Club extends a special welcome to visitors all year round. Tee times are available each day and may be booked on an individual or group basis. Special rates are available for societies and corporate outings. For Details contact David O’ Donovan Director of Golf
As soon as you arrive you will be made to feel extremely welcome by our PGA professional Jim Robinson and his team. Golfers can avail of the 18 hole championship links, the 9 hole Bomore course, the newly constructed driving range and full practice facilities.
After your round, enjoy a meal in the Links Restaurant or visit our bar and let our head Barman Tom help you to unwind in the traditional Irish way.
The professional shop at County Sligo is one of the finest in Ireland and carries a large selection of high quality goods for those who look for that special service, great quality and fanastic value. Club Trolley and Buggy hire can be organised through the shop.
