Rosses Point Golf Course
County Sligo Golf Club, also known as Rosses Point, is once again a truly great championship links. The home and resting place of W.B. Yeats, Sligo is in his words “the land of hearts desire”.

Peter Alliss states “From the 5th tee, you look down the side of a cliff to a breathtaking panorama of holes spreading into the distance below. Mountains on one side, sea on the other, all add to the wild grandeur of the majestic rolling surroundings. I have heard a lot about Ballybunion, Tralee, Connemara and Lahinch, but Rosses Point stands right at the very top of the list of Irish golf courses and it is one that more people should discover”.

It is home to the West of Ireland championship since 1923 and has such notable past champions as Joe Carr, Des Smyth and Padraig Harrington. Rosses Point has also been host to the Home Internationals in 1991 and the Irish Amateur Close Championship in 2001. The club’s most famous member is Cecil Ewing who stated “when the winds blow the only hiding place is in the clubhouse”. Cecil was an Irish team player and Walker Cupper born and bred in Rosses Point, a major force in Irish Amateur golf.

Established in 1894 it was originally laid out as 9 holes by George Combe and extended to 18 holes by Captain Cambell in 1904 with the Championship Links designed in 1927 by Harry S. Colt. Over years legendary players such as Walter Hagen, Bobby locke, Henry Cotton, Tom Watson, Nick Faldo and Darren Clarke have all been tested on this old fashioned, out and back lay out. Bernard Langer put it best by action rather than words when he went to visit and play a round there. He ended up staying for two weeks

Local Interest

The history of Donegal can be traced back 9,000 years. Still to be seen throughout the countryside are pre-Christian tomb monuments, some form of Viking settlements, and early Christian monuments. Some of the best weavers in the world are located in Donegal, with this craft being passed down for generations.

In Donegal tradition runs deeper, rhythm is stronger, and the water is wilder than any other part in Ireland. With so many magnificent attractions and activities to experience, it is exhilarating and thrilling to take a holiday in this unspoiled environment.
