Review for Rosapenna (Sandy Hills)

Reviewer Score:


I always include Rosapenna on my Ireland golf trips. Sandy Hills is a fine test of golf with no weak holes . It is more playable (easier) now that a ground game game can be used at many holes that were previously protected by penal pot bunkers. Sandy Hills should not take a backseat to any course in Ireland

The Morris-Ruddy second course vividly shows the difference in course architecture available when the nines were built. The OTM nine is on relatively flat rolling links land adjacent to the sea but the Ruddy nine takes you into the dunes, much like the Sandy Hills course

The Casey's provide a great golf experience with the world class golf but the hotel, spa and dining are equally impressive

Portsalon is a short drive away and only adds to the reasons to visit Rosapenna

If the spectacular dunes of St. Patricks Links are ever redeveloped into another world class course, Rosapenna will become the premier golfing destination in Ireland
