Sligo Area Golf Courses
While Sligo is best known for its seafood and history, the Sligo area is also known for its spectacular golf courses. Located along Ireland’s Atlantic coast, Sligo, meaning “Shelly Place,” is a perfect description of the shell midden coastal town that has been inhabited since 4000 BC and served a valuable part of golf history since the early 1900s. The Sligo area is the second largest urban center in Western Ireland, but don’t let the bustle of 39,000 people fool you, Sligo is full of sprawling countryside, mountains and rock outcroppings perfect for challenging golf courses. Golf enthusiasts flock to the Sligo region for discount tee times on the pristine rolling Irish hills and blue flag beaches that make for memorable rounds of golf at tracks that are noted in the pages of golf’s history.
