County Sligo G.C.-Rosses Point (Colt Championship)

Rosses Point, Co. Sligo, Ireland


Significant work was done in 2014 to bring this gem on Ireland’s northwest coast up to the standards and demands of modern players. The old Colt course, set across beautiful links terrain, gained roughly 300 yards through the addition of new tees and green extensions (the par-5 third received an entirely new green 65 yards beyond where it was) along with numerous new fairway bunkers and several putting surface expansions. Holes 12 through 17 skirt the beach making for a lovely run of holes (the course is named for the peninsula of land that juts into Drumcliff Bay), but the real intrigue comes from a system of burns that meander in rhymeless direction through fairways and in front of greens.


Holes 18
Length 7259
Year Opened 1894
Designer Harry Colt (1927); Eddie Hackett (1983); Pat Ruddy (2014)
