Occasionally referred to by some as Rosses Point thanks to the area upon which it lies the County Sligo Golf Club is home to two golf courses. There is the main championship course and the smaller yet equally enjoyable Bomore course which is a newer addition. The views and vistas that are offered by the courses here are incredible and are regularly commented on by visitors. Found in the west of Ireland the club is around a 10 minute drive away from the bustling city of Sligo itself.

The championship course here has a long and fruitful history of more than 100 years however the newer Bomore is still an excellent course. Added to the club in 1999, the Bomore has matured well and has plenty of its own appeal making it popular with visitors and members alike. 

Of a links style, this 9 hole course has a par of 35 and measures 2785 metres. It is huddled near to its larger contemporary yet still has a number of its own distinct features. The course is relatively flat yet it is interspersed with a great selection of flora and fauna which combine with the numerous water hazards to create a tricky course which is still enjoyable. It is considered by many as a challenging test however there is no doubt that the location of this course is stunning. 

Facilities at the club are excellent and as well as the two courses there is a bar and restaurant area for all to enjoy as well as changing rooms with shower and locker facilities that have been recently refurbished. Practice facilities are good as there is a six bay driving range as well as a chipping green and separate putting green and a bunker practice green as well as a short game and a long game practice area. There is also a professional shop offering a large array of items for both purchase and hire. 

Tee times for the Bomore course have generally fair availability as the Championship is the main course here however weekend availability is more limited for obvious reasons. Green fee rates reflect the nature of the course and facilities here and offer fair value for money. 

Due to its proximity with Sligo, access to the club is good from much of the west of Ireland and visitors should have no problem in getting here. The club has a number of links with local accommodation providers who are sure to offer all visitors a comfortable stay particularly the Radisson Blu Hotel in Sligo who is a valued sponsor of the West of Ireland Amateur Golf Championship as well as number of the clubs other events.

    Fantastic course. Great variety of holes (none of them easy) and friendly welcome. Played in what the locals described as a mild breeze, which roughly translated means 3/4 club difference. If you're in the west of Ireland, this place and Carne are a must.
