Rosapenna Sandy Hill Links Downings, County Donegal, Ireland

Frank Casey, today's owner of Rosapenna, dreamed a dream, a second 18 hole links in the dunes overlooking the Old Tom Morris a full century later after he laid out his masterpiece. Frank entrusted the realisation of his dreams to Pat Ruddy whose mastery of links design is matched only by his knowledge and enthusiasm for the game of golf. Each hole was caressed into life with loving artistry to challenge the skills of the modern day golfer and bombard their senses with a succession of majestic picture postcard scenes into which they are invited to play. All the hallmarks of Ruddys designs are evident here: elevated tees, clearly visible landing areas and large greens. Mountain, ocean, sky and dunes have been commingled in a blaze of hues and tones to present a stunningly lovely, living canvass and a true golfing experience.Thus, as golf enters its third century at Rosapenna, golfers from around the world are set for an unparalleled opportunity to enjoy and study links golf at its best, the traditional and the new, 36 Championship holes, in one location.
