Just north of Ballina in Co Sligo, Enniscrone is in a stunning location. With views of the Moy Estuary and the Atlantic Ocean, the Nephin and Ox Mountains as a backdrop, the beautiful beach and impressive dunes, this is a great example of rugged links golf.

Course lowdown: There are so many good holes here it is hard to single out individual ones, but certainly the stretch from the 12th to the 16th is dramatic. The 12th, the hardest hole, is only 345 yards, but the fairway is incredibly undulating and the green cut into the side of a sand dune. Your approach must be accurate or you?ll fall off the putting surface into a deep hollow.

Stats: par 73, SSS 73, 6,948 yards

History: Golf began at Enniscrone back in 1918 but it wasn?t until 1974 that Eddie Hackett was employed to extend the course to 18 holes. More holes, designed by Donald Steele, were later added to this 27 hole layout.
