Strandhill Golf Club

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1931

Strandhill Golf Club is a classic seaside links course with holes overlooking Cullenamore Beach to the south, and others facing onto the Atlantic Ocean to the west. Looming large to the east is the striking limestone hill of Knocknarea.

Strandhill is a wonderfully rolling duneland links layout, although less well-known than the County Sligo course at Rosses Point, which sits on the other side of the inner part of Sligo Bay. If you are spending a day or two in and around Sligo, it's well worth adding a round at Strandhill to your itinerary.

Did you know?

Strandhill Golf Club was founded in 1931 as a nine-hole golf course. In 1939, John McAlister from Dublin was engaged to design a new nine-hole course over the existing land, which opened in 1940. The present 18-hole layout, designed by Irish golf professional and golf course architect Eddie Hackett, was opened in 1973; it was subsequently modified with the input of several members.
