Enniscrone is one of Ireland’s finest links golf courses set in scenic splendour in Killala Bay in County Sligo. This championship venue provides golfers with the ultimate golf vacation experience – dramatic dunesland, an inspired design concept, superb greens all year round and breathtaking views.
Originally designed by the great Eddie Hackett – Enniscrone’s reputation as a top-class golf venue has been embellished with the addition of six new holes threading the path through the mountainous dunes. The new holes, expertly designed by the famous course architect, Donald Steele add an exciting dimension to the 27 hole golf championship layout.
If you are looking for links golf in Ireland, then Enniscrone will not disappoint and if you are looking for a hole that reflects not only the beauty of Enniscrone, but also the region as a whole, look no further than the 16th Hole.
Coastal dunes are the only thing that separates the fairway from the ocean as players tackle this hole that fades slightly right and away from the Atlantic the closer it gets to the green. The prodigious dunes framing both sides of this hole give a feeling of seclusion and grandeur that epitomizes everything that Enniscrone is about which is capitalized by the seaside setting.
The bunkerless hole features a fairway that slopes towards the water and relies on the massive dunes, strong winds, and tall fescue to protect par from all but the most confident of players.
It is difficult to describe the beauty of this amazing golf hole so the flyover video from the Enniscrone Golf Club is the best way to show you all the beauty and challenge that awaits you if you are fortunate enough to have the opportunity to challenge this great golf hole.
Happy viewing and give us a call if we can help get you on this memorable golf course.
