Golf Pavilion

The Golf Pavilion which officially opened on June 16th 2005 represents a €3 million investment is classic 21st. century modernity. Covering an 18,000 square foot floor area, the two storey structure has state of the art ground floor changing rooms, and fully stocked golf shop. Spacious restaurant, and lounge, billiards room, committee room, and conference room are located on the first floor. The interior design and furnishing concepts reflect an elegantly styled luxury with subtle light patterns which engage with striking views of Sheephaven Bay and Muckish Mountain landscapes.

Architecturally, the Pavilion design draws from Open Championship venue, Turnberry in Scotland, and from elevations and style of the old Rosapenna Hotel, built as a holiday lodge by the Earl of Leitrim in 1893. In another connection with the past, the site of the  Pavilion is the exact site of the original holiday lodge. 

In addition to unveiling the plaque to mark the opening of the Pavilion, Seamus Mallon also cut a tape to inaugurate the Strand Links. These Pat Ruddy designed holes replaced the old link’s back nine in September 2009. They form a seamless connection with the Old Tom Morris designed ‘Valley’ holes and this configuration of 18 holes is a great test of traditional links golf. Running to just under 7,000 yards off the championship markers the Strand & Valley nines are a testing combination of traditional and modern links holes which bridge a century of golf design influences.

"By any measure Rosapenna compares more than favourably with any golf facility in any part of Ireland. The Hotel and Golf Pavilion, two championship links, Sandy Hills and Old Tom Morris, along with the practice facility and the 9 holes from the original Old Links now known as the Coastguard Nine, makes Rosapenna the best equipped golf resort in the country" - Seamus Mallon
