Strandhill Golf Club

3-PLUS: Good course - several memorable features; worthy of 3½ stars.

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 often overshadowed by the more renowned 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.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
