Golf Course/
Rosapenna - Old Tom Morris

Just a short walk from the fishing village of Downings, Rosapenna Golf Club is situated by the beautiful shores of the Donegal coastline.

The story goes that in 1891, while a guest of Lord Leitrim at his nearby estate, Old Tom Morris of St. Andrews, a winner of four British Opens in the 1860’s, took a drive to enjoy the scenery. Morris was quick to see the golfing potential of this fine stretch of Donegal coastline and before returning to the home of golf he had staked-out the first Rosapenna Links, incorporating wide rolling fairways amidst the undulating terrain and of course those delightful greens. A legend was born.

This is one of the classics of Irish golf, designed by one of the game's original superstars and still packs a punch after all these years. In September 2009, the new Strand Nine opened at Rosapenna, replacing the original back nine. These new holes are now played as the front nine, while the original Old Tom Morris Valley nine have become the back loop.

There are two sets of holes: one style uses the seaside and the dunes, while the other incorporates the sandy, inner meadows of the hillside.

For fans of links golf, it doesn't get much better than Rosapenna.
