PGA National Ireland Slieve Russell is one of only eight PGA National designated resorts in the world and its highly acclaimed 18-hole championship course & 9 Hole ‘PGA National’ Academy course forms part of the magnificent 300-acre Slieve Russell  Estate.

Created by the late highly-regarded Irish golf architect Patrick Merrigan, the layout’s clever design wraps attractively around the lakes and drumlins of the County Cavan landscape.

A course of stunning quality both from a visual and a playing perspective the Championship par-72 course measures in excess of 7,000 yards from the back tees and is firmly established among Ireland’s top 10  parkland courses.
