Participating Golf Courses 2012

The Erne Waterways Challenge is played on three courses in Cavan and Fermanagh every year. For 2012, the courses involved are Slieve Russell, Enniskillen and Cavan Golf Club. The event takes place over the weekend of the 8th- 10th June 2012.

Slieve Russell Championship Golf Course, Ballyconnell, Co. Cavan

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.

Castle Hume Golf Course, Enniskillen, Co. Fermanagh

Castle Hume is quickly emerging as one of the best golfing facilities the North West has to offer. The golf course provides golfers of all skill levels with a very enjoyable yet testing challenge. Highly manicured and contoured greens are a real delight to putt on, but make sure you avoid the numerous bunkers and water hazards that await to punish errant shots.

County Cavan Golf Club, Cavan, Co. Cavan

County Cavan Golf Club is one of the oldest clubs in Ireland having been founded in 1894 and has been affiliated to the GUI since 1899. Located at Drumelis, County Cavan Golf Club is situated on the Killeshandra Road from Cavan. It's an 18-hole, par 70-Parkland course, stretched over 6,164 yards and is very popular with visitors.

Partner Course
Although not a competition course for the Erne Waterways Challenge 2012, Enniskillen is definately worth a visit while in the region. Enniskillen will be a competition course for the Erne Waterways Challenge once again in 2013.

Enniskillen Golf Course, Castle Coole, Co. Fermanagh

Established in 1896, Enniskillen is a superb 18 hole parkland course. When playing the course you cannot fail to notice the outstanding views. The par 71 course has mature tree lined fairways along with elevated tees overlooking the surrounding area. The mature back nine requires accuracy off the tee to avoid the large parkland trees. The course is a true challenge and good straight tee shots will be rewarded with low scores. 


Cavan Golf Pass

In partnership with Fáilte Ireland, three golf clubs in Cavan have developed the Cavan Golf Pass which enables visitors to play three top quality courses for €89. The objective is to promote County Cavan’s outstanding range of golf choices which are available at affordable prices. The three courses are County Cavan GC, Farnham Estate GC and Slieve Russell Hotel Golf & Country Club. Visitors can play all three within a twelve month period at times that suit.

The North West scored a ‘hole in one’ at the International Association of Golf Tour Operators (IAGTO) recent awards ceremony in Valencia, when the North & West Coast Links Golf (N&WCL) won the prestigious title of ‘European Golf Destination of the Year 2011’.
