Roscommon has a choice of excellent golf courses throughout the county.
Roscommon Golf Club
Roscommon Golf Club course is an 18 hole championship course and offers members and visitors an enjoyable and challenging round of golf. Mature trees, which once graced Lord Crofton’s estate, have been retained and new trees have been strategically planted, which not only add to the scenic beauty, but challenge the golfer to plan their route from tee to green. There are water features on the first, ninth, twelfth and fourteenth holes which add to the variety of the round.

Strokestown Golf Club
Strokestown Golf Club is one of those hidden jewels you stumble across. A 9-hole course where the higher tee boxes give fabulous views of Sliabh Bán, while the lower holes expose the gently undulating landscape.
Signature holes are the par three over water, always proves tricky. Or the short par 4 with a precisely positioned tree. You’ll know it when you get there.
The warm inviting club house offers superb vantage across the vista towards Sliabh Bán with its South facing viewpoints. Strokestown Golf Club, 2 kms from Strokestown, 90 minutes from Dublin 50 minutes from Ireland West Airport Knock.
