In the South East of Ireland within the county of Wexford is where you will find the Rosslare Golf Club and its two golf courses. Located in the so-called sunniest spot within Ireland both courses here are rarely closed due to bad weather and the location near to one of the busiest ports in the country means that the local towns and cities are well prepared to meet the needs of visitors. The Old Course here is the main course which attracts the most players however the Burrow Course is also not short of merits or appeal. 

The club itself was founded back in 1905 and was originally just the home to a modest 9-hole course. However some 20 or so years later in 1928 the site of the course and club moved and a new 18-hole course was laid out by the infamous duo of Hawtree and Taylor. This is the Old Course that we know today. 

A championship links course, the Old course measures some 6033 metres from the white tees and has a par of 72. The traditional feel of this course comes across in many of its features so expect naturally rugged and sandy terrain and windswept hills and hollows which combine to make an exciting and excellent example of a links course which is regularly ranked as among the best in the country.

Facilities at Rosslare are very good and reflect the popular nature of both the club and its two courses. The club house is well equipped and has both a bar and restaurant which players can enjoy after their rounds, there is also a well-appointed professional golf shop where players can purchase a variety of equipment and apparel and can also hire items.  There is also spacious shower and locker facilities available for all players and the practice facilities here are also good and include an all-weather driving range and a chipping and putting green upon which players can hone and refine their skills. 

With regards to tee time availability for visitors to the Old Course here it is generally good throughout the weekdays although it is somewhat restricted during the weekends. Considering the quality of both the course and facilities here the green fee rates offer very good value for money and players are in for a good deal. The club also hosts a number of open competitions throughout the year which both members and visitors can enjoy. 

Both the course and club are relatively well connected to the rest of Ireland by road and the nearby main town of Wexford is only 10 minutes away by car and from there further links are strong. There is also the nearby ferry terminal which has regular car and cargo crossings both to and from a number of destinations in Wales and France. With regards to accommodation there are a number of options in the local area which should appeal to most tastes and budgets.

    This course is an absolute gem. Played in June and the course was typically hard and fast running. Some good fun holes mixed with some strong par 4s. Great value. As good a course as many more acclaimed courses. (6 handicap golfer who has played 70+ links courses in GB&I)

    Direkt an der Kueste liegt der schoene Old Course. Alles ist natuerlich und urspruenglich. Bei Wind darf man nicht empfindlich sein, da die Fore-Rufe oft zu hoeren sind. 35 € Grennfee ist o.k. Ds clubhaus ist angemessen. leider war eine grosse Feier, so dass wir nur einen kurzen Drink hatten. Wenn man in der Naehe ist - spielen,
