Reflecting on the 2015 Atlantic Coast Challenge
The Atlantic Coast Challenge 2015 has finished for another year. Played from 6-8 July, some 130 teams played the Irish golf links of Carne, Co. Sligo and Enniscrone, in counties Mayo and Sligo. They sit rather majestically on the Wild Atlantic Way.

There were many highlights, with the courses being the stars of the show, but what is most noticeable about this glorious corner of Ireland is that you should never believe the weather forecast. Never, ever, ever.

Five years ago, when I played in the inaugural Atlantic Coast Challenge event, I chatted to Pat Sweeney, the then General Manager at Enniscrone. Under clear blue skies, I commented that the weather forecast had predicted relentless rain. The response was a laugh and a pertinent observation that those forecasting the weather in Dublin didn’t have a clue about what was going on in the north west.

And so it proved this year… for some of the time. Those golfers going out in.

Atlantic Coast Challenge 2015

Atlantic Coast Challenge

The Atlantic Coast Challenge first teed off in 2011. It was the commitment of three of the north west’s most spectacular clubs that made the Challenge a reality. By coming together, Carne, Co. Sligo and Enniscrone golf links have created a three day tournament which is open to anyone who loves the game of golf.

Now in its fifth year, the event has become one of the most prestigious golf challenges in the country. It has brought a renewed prominence to the north west, showcasing not just three of the best links golf courses in Ireland, but also the beauty of Mayo and Sligo, and the wonderful reception visitors receive on every trip. If there’s one thing you’ll always get in the north west, it’s a heartfelt Irish welcome.

Such factors are increasingly important as golfers come from far and.
