Rosapenna Hotel & Golf Resort Review

The ghost of Old Tom Morris is alive and kicking on the first of the two courses at this recently revamped, old-school links. In 1891 the legendary Morris spotted the potential of this secluded stretch of Donegal coastline and staked out the original course himself. Long-dead greats such as Harry Vardon and James Braid played here, where the first 10 holes are classic links and the last 8 actually play inland and uphill into high meadow. The priceless Atlantic views haven't changed since Morris's day, but the recent addition of the testing and tantalizing Sandy Hills links course has made this place a must-stop for the serious golfer. Book online and save €20 on either the Morris or Sandy Hill courses.
