Par 69, yardage 6,035. Strandhill Golf Club sits about 6 miles west of Sligo and enjoys stunning views of the Knocknarea Mountain, Ballisodare Bay and the Atlantic coastline. It nestles among the sand dunes and certainly places a premium on accuracy. "I played this course and fell in love with it," admitted one visitor. "The back nine, particularly, is unique, hard and interesting." Another commented: "Not the toughest challenge there is but lovely views, especially from the high tees, while the first, 16th and 18th are the tough holes."
