The hands of golfing greats have shaped and moulded the links at Rosapenna. 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 Donegal scenery. Morris was quick to see the golfing potential of this fine stretch of Donegal coastline and he staked out the first Rosapenna Links.

A full century later Frank Casey, today’s owner of Rosapenna, dreamed a dream, a second 18 hole links in the dunes overlooking the Old Tom Morris masterpiece. He entrusted the realization of this dream to Pat Ruddy who mastery of links design is matched only by his knowledge and enthusiasm for the game of golf.
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. Rosapenna Hotel & Golf Links is the perfect holiday base to explore links golf in Ireland.
