Golf Course/
County Sligo - Rosses Point

County Sligo Golf Club is located eight kilometres from Sligo town at the seaside village of Rosses Point and is much more than just a beautiful golf course. 

Widely regarded as a great championship golf course, Co Sligo successfully combines gorgeous scenery and competitive play. Views of Benbulben eclipsing the northern skyline and of rolling green hills set before the Atlantic Ocean make Co Sligo one of the most beautiful links in Ireland.

Yet don’t be too mesmerised by the course’s natural beauty. Golfers will need to direct all their focus to their game if they expect to survive this difficult course.

The 17th hole is the signature hole. The long par-4 calls for an accurate drive to the right of the fairway followed by play to the left up a steep uphill to the green. The challenge doesn’t end there, though, as the green is preceded by a steep slope that rejects any short approach, sending it back towards the fairway.

The Rosses Point course has hosted several prestigious events, including the Home Internationals, the Irish Close, and the Irish Professional Matchplay Championship, as well as every West of Ireland amateur championship since 1923.
