Co Sligo Golf Club, Co Sligo
A centenarian with all the dignity and maturity of age, this is one of Ireland’s great championship golf links. The club has hosted most of Ireland’s major championships over the years. Three extended beaches beneath the cliffs keep the Atlantic at Bay to the west of the course while towering Benbulben competes with the ocean for scenic splendour on the land side. The wind from the sea is a constant factor but the 3rd, 5th, 10th, and 14th holes have satisfying downhill drives to compensate. Venue of Home Internationals 1991, Annual West of Ireland Amateur Championship played at Easter. Many believe that Rosses Point offers the finest 18 holes in the country. Among the most beautiful holes on the front nine is the short par four 2nd hole. Measuring just over 278 metres, the hole plays severely uphill and your approach can be very difficult to judge, while the panoramic view from the green is as vast as it is sensational. The wind from the sea is a constant factor but the 3rd and 5th holes have very satisfying downhill drives to compensate. The 7th may appear straightforward for a hole rated as the index one but when your approach makes an unscheduled visit to the brook in front of the green, your comprehension of this rating will grow.
