Managers – Frank & Hilary Casey
The hands of golfing greats have shaped and moulded the golf links at Rosapenna Golf Resort. 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. Harry Vardon and James Braid both journeyed to Rosapenna Hotel & Golf Resort in the early 1900s to add length and bunkering, wisely leaving Morris’ perfect greens intact.
A full century later Frank Casey, today’s owner of Rosapenna Golf Resort, dreamed a dream, a second 18 hole golf links in the dunes overlooking the Old Tom Morris masterpiece. He entrusted the realization of this dream to Pat Ruddy whose mastery of links design is matched only by his knowledge and enthusiasm for the game of golf.
Rosapenna Golf Resort is now home to two of the finest courses to be found – The Old Tom Morris Links and the new Sandy Hill Links. Add to this a magnificent four star golf hotel, tennis court, swimming pool and all the facilities you would expect from a top class golf links hotel and resort. This resort is a must visit in the North West of Ireland for those looking to experience top quality links golf along with genuine Irish hospitality.
