Rosses Point Links is steeped in history - founded in the late 18th Centaury by a relation of poet W.B. Yeats, it has stood the test of time. Tee boxes and greens are pristine and hold testing fairways in between. When you sink that putt you can marvel at the splendour of the imposing Ben Bulben Mountain and or the Atlantic waves on the beach below. This course was once described by Peter Allis "as a tremendous test for the highest quality player and great fun for the modern competitor."
