There is a championship 18 hole golf course 200 yards from the Club (see www.countysligogolfclub.ie). Note the photographs of the holes which show the Bay in which we sail in the background) and there are other golf courses in the area.

There is also a beautiful Rosses Point coastal walk that will allow you to take in the scenery.

And of course, there is the beautiful beach to enjoy, be it walking, swimming or laying back and enjoying the view of the racing in the bay.

Sligo Area

Sligo has some of the most picturesque landscape in the country and a great choice of coastal, hill and lakes walks.  See www.sligowalks.ie for more information.

The village of Strandhill on the opposite side of the bay to Rosses Point is one of Europe’s leading surfing centres (If you fancy a lesson see www.perfectdaysurfing.com and www.strandhillsurfschool.com)

The beaches at Rosses Point and around Sligo are suitable for Kitesurfing and anyone tempted should try www.lsdkiteboarding.com.

The Sligo Tennis Club is about 5 miles away from the club. www.sligotennisclub.ie
