|The par four 10th - sea and Benbulbin slipping alongside|
|The par 3 4th and the terrifying front.|
|The 11th hole, showing off the steep left to right slope. The green|
is to the right of the distant golfers (on 12th tee).

County Sligo Golf Club Changes
- lengthening the course (for championship events specifically) by building new tee boxes and replacing one green (the 3rd);
- extending greens to present tougher/alternative pin positions;
- adding bunkers to fairways and green complexes to enhance challenges;
- and other changes, such as introducing new mounding, adjusting water features (the brook) and realigning fairways/rough to take advantage of natural features or OB.
|The 3rd green, which will disappear altogether - a new one is|
to be built 60 metres farther back (to the right in this pic).
|A world-class hole, the 17th should NEVER be touched.|
