Experience Links Golf along the famed Wild Atlantic Way
The Co. Sligo Golf Club (Rosses Point)
Course Type: Links
Length: 6,609 yards
County Sligo Golf Club is situated at Rosses Point, a seaside village eight kilometres north west of Sligo town. It is one of the oldest and best-known links courses in Ireland. Its fine long sandy beaches, the Atlantic and the harbour are often in full panoramic view. Besides the magnificent views, the golf course offers an excellent round of golf. The course is filled with dramatic undulations, elevated tees, and raised plateau greens. The wind from the sea is a constant factor but the 3rd, 5th, 10th & 14th holes have satisfying downhill drives to compensate. The club is the home of the famous West of Ireland Open amateur championship played every Easter since 1923 and has hosted many other prestigious events including the Home Internationals, the Irish Close and the Irish Professional Matchplay Championship.
Enniscrone Golf Club
Course Type: Links

This Course is known to be the premier links on the Western seaboard and it is a magical links experience. the golf course affords panoramic views of Killala Bay, Bartra Island and sandy beaches with Nephin and the Ox Mountains forming the backdrop. From the opening approach it provides a challenge of the highest quality, some supremely memorable golf holes and will reward those that play and concentrate well. Apart from the championship links known as The Dunes, there is also the splendid 9 hole Scurmore course.
Carne Golf Links
Course Type: Links
Length: 6,690 yards
Carne is a links course and can be found on one of the most westerly points in Ireland near Belmullet Co Mayo, with breathtaking views over the wild Atlantic Ocean. Its location is on Belmullet Peninsula, one and a half miles west of Belmullet town. The layout of the course offers a variety of interesting holes that each have a unique character. They require some creative shot-making and skillful course management. The ubiquitous Atlantic wind makes the second nine a real challenge on the 11th, 14th and 17th in particular – a gem of a links well worthy of a visit.

Just wanted to personally thank you for a great trip. Everything went smooth as silk and we thoroughly enjoyed everything about Ireland!!!
Great Golf and lots of Guinness!
Just home late last night and wanted to let you know everything went beyond expectation. The Hotel was marvellous. Their attention, to even the smallest ,details was terrific. Great rooms with plenty of space. And the food was terrific. The golf courses as well up there are wonderful and the countryside was very nice indeed. All your scheduling etc was flawless and we didn’t miss a beat. Even the weather, for Ireland, was superb.
Thank you for all your help
To all at SWING Golf
Thanks so much for arranging a wonderful trip – great courses and lodging. Our driver was first rate. And the weather you provided was stunning. My friend Ed hasn’t really experienced an Irish golfing excursion after 5 days of sunshine and three drops of rain.
Hopefully we can do something similar next year.
