Just a short walk from the fishing village of Downings, Rosapenna Golf Club is situated by the beautiful shores of the Donegal coastline. The story goes that in 1891, while a guest of Lord Leitrim at his nearby estate, Old Tom Morris of St. Andrews, a winner of four British Opens in the 1860’s, took a drive to enjoy the scenery. Morris was quick to see the golfing potential of this fine stretch of Donegal coastline and before returning to the home of golf he had staked-out the first Rosapenna Links, incorporating wide rolling fairways amidst the undulating terrain and of course those delightful greens. A legend was born.
