The Course
Forming part of a magnificent 300-acre estate, including 50 acres of lakes, our highly acclaimed 18-hole championship course is sensitively wrapped around the lakes and the drumlins of the County Cavan landscape. The course presents a wonderful challenge and the devilishly tricky greens present a searching examination of accurate approach play, which adds to the enjoyment factor. With a variety of tee options on each hole, the golf course is a suitable challenge for golfers of all abilities

Whilst every hole on the golf course is a challenge, the par 5 13th is the signature hole on the golf course with its fairway hugging the shores of one of the course's natural lakes offering a risk/reward opportunity on every shot.

Not surprisingly the complex has always proved very popular with visiting golf groups from all over Ireland, the UK and Europe and many return on a regular basis to sample our renowned hospitality.

The Slieve Russell has hosted some major European Challenge Tour and Irish PGA Tournaments. These include, the Buzz.com North West of Ireland Open, the Irish PGA Championship and also the Quinn Insurance PGA Charity Pro-Am, which has been held since 1997 and has now become an annual event boasts the highest prize fund for Irish PGA Professionals.
