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
Length: 6,948 yards
Enniscrone Golf Club is located in the northwest of County Sligo overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, 6 miles north of Ballina. 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 want to say that you and all the team at SWING did a great job on our southwest Ireland golf trip.
Originally planned in 2019 for 2020, the trip finally culminated in 9 rounds in 7 days in July 2022. SWING did a great job with course selection, tee times, caddies, accommodations, and transportation. They even dialled in great weather for the trip. Following on from our golf trip we also had a 10 day couples trip around the Southwest co-orindated by SWING and this was also a resounding succes .
I have used the team at SWING for previous trips and will use them again.
We all made it back in one piece after a delightful and memorable trip.
I had very high expectations which were far exceeded! Everyone (wives included) had rave reviews all around.
Golf courses were perfect and caddies were great (we walked all days, my phone steps app registered over 60 miles walked in total, not bad at 62 yrs)
The weather was perfect (to say the least).
Our driver s was excellent and a great sport with accommodating the side trips for the women.
The scenery was breathtaking and abundant, and finishing at Old Head left the group speechless.
Finally, hats off to you and Swing Golf for a truly Epic experience and your professional accommodations during the three years of global turmoil.
You will likely be hearing from us again for another trip in the future.
Thank you so much for your help with getting this trip together for us.
We had a great trip. They checked our vaccination cards and passenger locator forms before we boarded here in the states and when we were returning they checked the results of the COVID antigen test at the Dublin airport – we were all negative of course. We did use the Abbott Binaxnow test while in Sligo and it worked well – they monitored the test over the internet and then emailed the validation of the negative results to us. I think we all felt very safe the entire trip. I hadn’t eaten in a restaurant or been in a bar since the start of this pandemic but, as we ate every meal around other people on this trip, things were fine as we usually weren’t too close to others and people were good about masks, etc.
We only had rain a couple of times and only once, at Ardglass, was it really bad. We only played nine holes there but that was okay as we were jet lagged anyway. The caddies at RCD and Royal Portrush we’re excellent for having to deal with four not so great golfers. They told us we were only the third American group they’d had since the pandemic started. Regarding accommodations, all were really great. We didn’t have any problems finding pubs/restaurants and had a lot of good meals.
Anyway, we all enjoyed the trip greatly and thank you again for your help.
Very best regards,
