Judging from the reviews below, County Sligo divides opinion. Almost everyone agrees that it's a good course, but some feel it falls short of the best. I agree with the latter sentiment, I was slightly underwhelmed.
There's no doubt that it's a good golf course with some very good holes and few weak ones. But having played it in a trip that took in Carne, Enniscrone and Connemara, I came away feeling that Sligo was the least strong of the four. The weather drove my off Connemara, so I'm unable to make a complete comparison there, but for Sligo to be rated above Carne and Enniscrone? I can't see that. The views are stupendous, of course, and the facilities excellent, but for me it added up to a great place to play golf, not quite a great golf course.
