ROSAPENNA GOLF CLUB
The Old Tom Morris Course has been attracting golfers for over a century and now, with the addition of the magnificent Sandy Hills Links, Rosapenna is set to become one of the top links destinations in the world.
Old Tom Morris Links
As with most good links courses, the Old Tom Morris course takes advantage of natural terrain to provide a classic links golf challenge.
The front nine play inland and around the coastguard hill and offer superb vistas over Mulroy Bay.
The back nine holes which are classic links run between the ocean and the high dune ridge in what is known locally as "The Valley" finishing infront of the Golf Pavilion.
Though the Old Tom Morris Course measures only 6,450 yards from the back tees there are, on this par 70 layout, no fewer than six two-shotters in the 400-yards-plus category.
Sandy Hills Links
This course, opened in June 2003, is set to become one of the most famous golf courses in Ireland. Where Old Tom settled for a course alongside the dunes, Pat Ruddy has gone straight through them from start to finish and created an awesome course that will test any golfer, yet somehow still seduce those that cannot live with it.. Each hole is spectacular and the views across the Old Tom Morris course to the ocean will salve all the wounds inflicted by this incredible golf course.
