Slieve Russell Golf Club

Club of the Month Archive

Forming part of a magnificent 300 acre estate, including 50 acres of lakes, the 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.

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 Irish PGA Tournaments. These include The Irish PGA Championship in 1996 and also the Quinn Insurance PGA Charity Pro-Am, which has been held since 1997 and has now become an annual event and boasts one of the highest prizefunds in Europe.  The Slieve Russell has also played host to European Tour events - North West of Ireland Open in 2001 & 2002.

The Slieve Russell Pro-Am will take place at the Slieve Russell Golf Course on 11th and 12th June 2012. This event is being staged during the same week as the U.S. Open and promises to offer a great week’s golf in Ireland.

Similar to pervious years the team will consist of one professional and three amateurs played over 36 holes of golf.

To date many of Ireland’s leading Irish P.G.A. professionals have already committed to participating in this year’s event with an expected prize fund of €30,000.

The format of the event will be:

Team price for two day overnight package is €1,675.00.
