Home to Ireland's prestigious West of Ireland Championship. Players such as Rory McIlroy, Shane Lowry and Padraig Harrington all won here along the way to becoming Major Champions. County Sligo Golf club is one of Ireland's most iconic golf clubs and it boasts a truly spectacular links in the shadows of Ben Bulben. Golf is the heart and soul of the coastal village of Rosses Point and the club has had extraordinary success winning National title after National title. The course is revered in Irish Golf circles.
Carne Golf Club
Once upon a time a "hidden gem", but now a "must play" for many golf visitors to Ireland. The road less travelled is often paved with nuggets of gold, but soon the word gets out. In the words of Tom Coyne, the author of A Course Called Ireland, "In any string of words I might pen over the rest of my life, I might never write a more true sentence than this: Carne is absolutely brilliant. Front nine, back nine, every hole, every hill, every inch of the place is simply special."
Simply put, Enniscrone proudly runs shoulders with all the great links. The course navigates a path through towering sand dunes and has some spectacular holes along the beach in Enniscrone. To this observer, the course ranks up there with all the great links of Ireland and Scotland. It never disappoints. "The course is unbelievable, feeling like I could lose directions within the dunes, not knowing where the ocean was, a brilliant design." Scott Wilson, PGA Streamsong Resort, Florida.
