Set just 90 minutes from Dublin and two hours from Belfast, Slieve Russell’s championship course is regarded among Ireland’s finest parkland layouts and, as well as hosting two European Tour events, was ranked number one in Ulster in 2018.
It is accompanied by a nine-hole par-three academy course and an adventure golf facility to inspire the next generation of young players, while the club also stages an annual PGA pro-am, with the popular event featuring a collective prize fund of €1.2million since it was first held in 1997 – the highest paid PGA pro-am tournament in Ireland.
Complementing the golf course is a 222-bedroom, four-star hotel; an award-winning Ciuin Spa; and an outstanding golf academy where resident head PGA professional Gordon Smyth and his team are available with expert tuition, state-of-the-art video analysis and training programmes to help golfers of all abilities achieve their goals.
