The Castle Dargan Hotel, Golf and Spa resort and its affiliated golf course can be found in the North West of  Ireland in County Sligo. Just to the South of the city of Sligo itself the resort and course can be found near to the small village of Ballygawley which is overlooked by the nearby, ancient Ballygawley Mountains which are of great geological and archaeological interest. 

This modern resort was original purchased by a local Sligo businessman in 2000 when it was in a pretty run down state, however over time the transformation here was undertaken to create the fantastic resort and course that we see today. The course was designed by the up-and-coming Darren Clarke who has worked tirelessly here to create a fantastic course.

Measuring 6220 metres from the championship tees this parkland style course has a par of 72. Greens here are firm and quick and are all built to the high USGA standard. Castle Dargan itself as well as some of its ancient ruins have been woven and worked into the design of this course and offer a majestic backdrop. Mature woods and natural water feature prominently throughout the course and create a beautiful yet challenging juxtaposition with the challenging greens. 

The facilities here are of a high standard and include a well-stocked pro shop from which players can purchase a selection of goods.  There is also a resident PGA professional who can provide coaching and tuition as well as advice on purchases. Practice facilities include a short game area as well as putting green. Not forgetting an onsite bar and well-appointed changing and locker rooms for player. 

Tee times for visitors to this course have good general availability and are well spread throughout the duration of the day. Weekend availability is slightly more restricted however it is still generally good. Seasonal variations with regards to tee times also occur here. Green fee rates for players here offer great value for money and the club offers a number of packages combining play with a meal or a stay in one of the onsite accommodation options. 

With regards to travelling to the resort it is relatively well connected to the majority of the North of Ireland as well as nearby  Northern Ireland by road. The obvious accommodation option here is the onsite hotel which offers a variety of room options, there are self-catered options here too as well as walled garden apartments.
