Resort Overview

Rosapenna already had two unique golf courses in its portfolio — the Old Tom Morris Links, designed by its namesake in 1893, plus the Sandy Hill Links, which opened in 2003 — before it welcomed the highly acclaimed St. Patrick’s Links, which was designed by Tom Doak in June 2021 and debuted at No. 55 in GOLF’s ranking of Top 100 Courses in the World. In other words, Rosapenna is links golf paradise, providing three courses that vary in scale, style and vintage. There’s plenty to do away from the course, too, with a bar and a restaurant on site, a spa, pool and sauna available, and access to endless outdoor activities, from walking and cycling to horseback riding and watersports.

The Old Tom Morris Links have an incredible lineage of architects, beginning with Morris himself and including James Braid, Harry Vardon and H.S. Colt before a recent reimagination by Pat Ruddy

While the Old Tom Morris Links winds its way around the dunes, the Sandy Hills Links dive straight through them to create a dramatic, modern links test

Tom Doak says that St. Patrick’s Links offers “some of the grandest views in the game.” Those who have played there since its 2021 opening seem to agree
