Superb condition, knowledgable staff!
A fantastic links along the Wild Atlantic Way...with views, undulating greens and some great par three holes.
Staff were friendly and helped out with additional hire sets. The Guinness in the bar is also great.
The view of Rosses Point from the 12th/13th is awesome. The team at the American Golf store - located on site - were also very helpful. Worth a visit. If short on time there’s a smaller nine hole course and a driving range 5 minute walk from the reception.
Course nice. Greens sucked
When booking our tee times we were not informed that they had just punched the greens. Nice course with great views but it sure would have been nice if they told us about the greens and perhaps offered some compensation for this. Frankly the greens detracted seriously from enjoying the course.
Arrived at the course around 8.30am for a 9am tee time. When I arrived there was a course closed sign up...disaster since I had driven 3 hours to get there. Pro shop was closed for the winter months but club manager assured me that the course would open within an hour (frost delay). He kindly gave me a range token and asked me to come back in 45 minutes to get an update. Practice facilities are superb!
Right enough the course was fit for play when I returned from the range. It truly is a spectacular piece of links land - the views are spectacular and the layout is superb. Some real dramatic tee shots from high to low early on in your round. Would say you have to make your score on the front 9 with the back 9 being the tougher of the two. 3 hours 10 minutes for the round and a nice pint after.
Can't recommend Rosses Point highly enough.
