Enniscrone Golf Club is found on the wild Atlantic way on the west coast of Ireland in County Sligo. Set amongst enormous dunes beside Killala Bay and at the mouth of the River Moy, it is one of Ireland's most scenic links.

Scurmore Course at Enniscrone
The 6 original displaced Hackett holes were accented by 3 new Donald Steel designs to create the 9 hole Scurmore course. Both courses opened for play in 2001.
