Brian Keogh reports on the acquisition of the 370-acre Rosapenna Hotel & Golf Resort formerly known as St. Patrick's Golf Links. Besides having existing golf with design touches from Old Tom, the sale includes an 800-acre dunes system that might lead to more golf holes.
Rosapenna - which features the Old Tom Morris Links, the Sandy Hills Links, the No. 3 Links, No. 4 Links and the Coastguard Nine - has a long illustrious golfing history dating to 1891 when Lord Leitrim brought Old Tom Morris of St Andrews to design the first links.
And some of the land and existing golf was almost made into a Jack Nicklaus course in 2006, but was halted.
