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.

Who's Who

Céline Boutier: with many successes as both an amateur and professional golfer, Boutier added a major championship title to her impressive résumé at this year’s Evian Championship.

Alex Cejka: buffeted by rain and high winds, especially on the high-scoring final day, Čejka prevailed over Pádraig Harrington in a playoff at Royal Porthcawl, to scoop the Senior Open Championship title.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.

Jim Fazio's original layout was much changed to create a modern Ryder Cup course ... now one of the Eternal City's (and Italy's) most revered.
