Rosslare Golf Club

3-PLUS: Good course - several memorable features; worthy of 3½ stars.

Est. 1905

Rosslare Golf Club is spectacularly located on a narrow peninsula of open links land, with the Irish Sea on one side and the wide expanse of Wexford Harbour on the other.

Gorse bushes, long grass and occasional bunkering await any wayward shots, which must be expected, especially when the wind is blowing across this exposed environment. Good-sized sand dunes give a wonderfully rolling aspect to the course and provide good definition to the fairways, and some nicely elevated tees and greens.

A dog-leg par-4 starts proceedings and a round that will contain many excellent links golf holes and fabulous views onto the Irish Sea - both the front and back nines contain their share of holes directly overlooking the beach.
