Course Description

Rosslare Golf Course is located on a narrow peninsula in the sunny South East corner of Ireland, it is a real Links gem, and the only championship links in this region. The club dates back to 1905 when it was home to just a nine hole course, today it is home to two fine golf courses. One of the strengths at Rosslare are the vistas they are enthralling, if you look around the Irish Sea is on one side and Wicklow Harbour on the other. The main course here is the Old Course which opened in 1928, it is the one that draws in more players, it was designed by Hawtree and Taylor a well known duo. It is pretty much the original course that still remains today. It is a par 72 championship course that measures 6,597 from the back tees.

The course is a true links course that has made the most out of the natural landscape, sitting naturally in the sandy terrain of low dunes. With many natural features it has a traditional feel, namely the rugged and sandy terrain, that give a nice rolling aspect to the course, combined with windswept hills and hollows they make an exciting and challenging round of golf. It benefits from a traditional layout with nine holes playing outward and then back in again, most holes are played along the beach. There are many spectacular holes on this course, they are guaranteed to ensure a highly enjoyable round in which you are certain to be enthralled by the amazing panoramic coastal views. The finish here is especially demanding with three classic link par 4's that demand precision and accuracy. Being situated on a peninsula it means that the sea is visible on the majority of holes and varying winds have a real impact on how the course plays from day to day.

The course is well maintained, the greens are super, quick, firm and true, the undulating fairways are fairly wide, the rough can be appalling with gorse bushes and long grases awaiting a wayward shot, there are some well placed bunkers.

When you play the Old course you get a classic links layout and a traditional course with stunning views, you are guaranteed a enjoyable round of golf.

Our Favourite Hole

Considering there are many outstanding holes on this marvellous links course it was not an easy choice but, our favourite hole is the iconic 11th hole. A par 4, 469 yards it really is a remarkable hole. Don’t be taken in by a straightforward drive, as your approach shot is totally blind and you will only be guided by the iconic “Barbers Pole”,  a red and white post in the fairway. It is also generally played into the prevailing wind.
