Rosapenna has been welcoming golfers from around the world since 1893 when the original Old Tom Morris Links opened for play along the picturesque Sheephaven Bay. The Sandy Hills Links, which opened in 2003 has been a great addition to this golfing mecca receiving acclaim from the golfing public while also reaching No.11 in Golf Worlds Top 100 in Ireland 2015 rankings. This modern links has undergone significant changes under Beau Welling over the last few season improving the playability for all levels of golfer.

Portsalon: Golf has been played on the Portsalon links, Donegal, since the 1880s. The club was one of the founder members of the Golfing Union of Ireland, the oldest golfing union in the world. Originally designed by Thompson of Portrush, the layout has evolved over the decades with significant changes being undertaken under the guidance of Pat Ruddy in 2000. Currently ranked in the top 25 courses in Ireland by Golf Digest, Portsalon continues to progress, with the 2014 Ryder Cup captain, Paul McGinley, guiding further improvements. Nestled under the Knockalla mountains and stretching along the magnificent Ballymastocker beach, a true test of links golf presents itself.

Ballyliffin Golf Club, consists of two outstanding, contrasting links courses and 36 wonderful holes make up one of the finest golf clubs in Ireland. The Old Links undulates in the glory of its natural terrain, presenting an immensely enjoyable challenge to every golfer. Work recently undertaken by Nick Faldo has strengthened The Old Links and brought much acclaim from members and visitors. The new Glashedy Links is a Pat Ruddy and Tom Craddock masterpiece fashioned around the incredible dunes, and is rated amongst the best links tracks in the world. Ruddy cherishes Glashedy as his own and has returned in recent years to fine tune the stunning bunkering of this magnificent links. Craddock and Ruddy are also credited with much of the improvement carried out to The Old Links in the course of constructing The Glashedy Links.

Above all, a warm welcome awaits you.
