Enniscrone Golf Club - Eddie Hackett Links

Enniscrone Golf Club is located in County Sligo in North West Ireland. Situated beside the picturesque seaside town of Enniscrone, the golf course affords panoramic views of Killala Bay, Bartra Island and sandy beaches with Nephin and the Ox Mountains forming the backdrop.

Founded in 1918, the course was redesigned by Eddie Hackett in 1974. Throughout the eighties club development continued with a new clubhouse being added in 1989. In 1990, Peter Dobereiner, the London Observer's great golf writer reported that he had stumbled across "an undiscovered gem of a links in the far north west, a course with some amazing holes".

The course had a renovation by Donald Steel in 2001. The result is that Enniscrone has one of the finest pure links courses in Ireland. This Irish championship course is one of Ireland's finest authentic golf links. Apart from the championship links known as The Dunes, there is also the splendid 9 hole Scurmore course.

Enniscrone is one of those links that you can recommend to your friends and visitors without any fear that they will come away disappointed. Undoubtedly it is its right to be included among such exalted company as Ballybunion, Connemara, Lahinch and Waterville as the premier links on the Western seaboard.

The recently refurbished Clubhouse and Restaurant offer a friendly and welcoming atmosphere with extensive views over the Course. The clubhouse offers a Pro Shop and expansive locker room facilities for Ladies & Gents.

The 2nd, 12th and 13th holes are absolutely fantastic. You never escape the dunes which wrap every hole, although some holes are just that little easier on you throughout the middle of the round. Enniscrone is a fabulous destination that leaves you with a feeling of total satisfaction.
