Sligo has some truly wonderful links golf as well as a fine selection of parkland inland courses. All are within easy reach of Sligo Town which makes The Glasshouse is an ideal location for a golfing short break stay. Green fees are surprisingly affordable and visitors are always very welcome.
Incredibly, Ireland has a quarter of the world’s links courses and three of these are in Sligo - County Sligo Golf Club in Rosses Point, Enniscrone Golf Club, Strandhill Golf Club. Each of these historic links is situated in the most wonderfully scenic location along the Wild Atlantic Way.
Rosses Point, also a championship course, is home to the famous West of Ireland Open amateur championship and has hosted many other prestigious events including the Home Internationals, the Irish Close and the Irish Professional Matchplay Championship.
Enniscrone championship links course was voted “Best in Connacht” by Golfers Guide to Ireland and is repeatedly a top-15 links course in Golf Digest’s review of Irish golf courses.
These challenging seaside courses offer what is considered by many to be the purest form of golf.
A totally different but equally attractive parkland course adjoins Castle Dargan Hotel in Ballygawley near Sligo Town.
