The Rosapenna Golf Resort purchased the St Patrick’s Links in late 2012, a former 36-hole pay & play facility developed by the Walsh Family of Carrigart. The Maheramagorgan Links designed by Irish architect Eddie Hackett and the Trá Mór Links designed by PGA Professional Joanne O’Haire, both opened for play in the mid-1990’s.
Discussions ensued with Tom Doak of Renaissance Golf Design, with Tom finalizing his lay-out with lead associate Eric Iverson in March 2013. The St Patrick's Links is routed in the dunes just south of the existing two courses at Rosapenna. It sits on the most magnificent piece of links land - huge scale, west coast of Ireland scenery, with enough variety in dimension to present a real diversity of golf holes. The routing takes golfers on a journey through huge dunes, to high above Sheephaven Bay, along the coast, then back over some more gentle dunes... and that's just the front nine! With plenty of width and an eclectic mix of naturalised bunkers, the course will be unlike anything in the UK & Ireland... or anywhere else for that matter.
An intimate group of founding members including Frank & John Casey of the Rosapenna Hotel & Golf Resort and architect Tom Doak have funded the construction of the new 18-hole course in a partnership between The Casey Family who have owned & operated Rosapenna since 1981 & Tom Doak of Renaissance Golf Design. Construction began in April 2018, with all of the greens completed in 2019 to ensure that they are matured and at their best from opening day. Despite of Covid-19, all of the finishing touches have been carried-out in 2020.
The St Patrick's Links is due to open for visitor play from Saturday June 26th 2021. A temporary Links House will operate on site in 2021 with all golfers checking in there rather than the main Golf Pavilion. See Google Maps for directions.
Rosapenna will operate the St Patrick’s Links with stay & play packages available alongside the Old Tom Morris Links and the Sandy Hills Links. Day visitors are also very welcome, we have a great value Three Links Ticket for non-hotel residents which includes one round on each of the three links.
All golf is bookable via The Pavilion Golf Shop on 00353 (0)74 915 5000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org

“It’s not unrealistic to say that this is one of, if not the last truly great undeveloped links site in Ireland,” John Casey added. “So, we are beyond excited to see Tom and Renaissance Golf Design work amongst these dunes.” - The Fried Egg, June 2019.
