Par 70, yardage 6,270. In 1891, while a guest of Lord Leitrim at his nearby estate, Old Tom Morris of St. Andrews, a winner of four Opens in the 1860s, took a ride to enjoy the Donegal scenery. Morris was quick to see the golfing potential of this fine stretch of Donegal coastline and before returning home he had staked out the first Rosapenna Links, incorporating wide rolling fairways amidst the undulating terrain and delightful greens.
As with most good links courses, the Old Tom Morris course takes advantage of natural terrain to provide a classic links golf challenge. The first 10 holes which are pure links run between the ocean and the dunes in what is known locally as "The Valley". The last 8 holes actually play inland and uphill into high meadow that offer superb vistas over the north Atlantic Ocean.
