When we visited this venue last year I was at an advantage over my fellow Luxury Golfer Alex as I had played it before. We came back here and why you ask ? Well I rang Alex in August of 2012 and told him that I had just played a course that blew my socks off ? Where he asked ?
Sandy Hills at Rosapenna I told him.
Im writing this blog now and am thinking how do you describe it ?
Wow, Brillant, Testing, all of these words don’t do it justice.
So Ill try harder for you to set the scene…or look at my own photos of the day we spent there.
Its hard, fair and breathtaking on a summers day and solid if you don’t drive it straight. The rough is hard as nails and the bunkers, well let’s just say don’t just don’t go in them. And the best thing is that it is utterly brilliant.
When Pat Ruddy built this he did himself proud, it is just sublime.
I have been lucky enough to play some great golf courses in my time in Scotland and abroad but this is in my top 5. It’s that good. The views, the greens, the outlook from the tees is just stunning and the course makes you play proper thoughtful golf.
You need to visit here soon.
Ps. The Old Tom Morris course which is also onsite is also a great links track, flatter, not as hard but the back nine runs along the coast and has some very good holes.
