Golf in Rosslare

Rosslare Golf ClubFor those interested in playing golf, Rosslare has much to offer.

The local championship golf links has been in operation since 1905 and with its natural setting, straddling the coast of the Irish Sea on one side and overlooking Wexford harbour and the north slobs on the other, it offers the perfect opportunity to appreciate the beauty of the local landscape while testing yourself against what has come to be regarded as the best links course in the South East of Ireland.

Also on offer is the 12-hole ‘Burrow’ course designed by Christy O’Connor Junior, which provides players with a slightly less demanding yet no less enjoyable golfing experience.

The sandy soil in Rosslare provides great drainage, with the result that the fairways and greens can be kept very dry and both the 18-hole and the 12-hole courses can be kept fully operational all year round.

The club, whose club-house is situated just 1km from the Rosslare Beach Villas, also offers an all weather practice range, chipping & putting greens, Ladies and Gents locker rooms with showers and sauna and full clubhouse bar and restaurant facilities, complete with snooker room.

Due to the Rosslare Beach Villas proximity to Rosslare Golf Club, and our general facilities (which include outdoor sheds for the storage of golf clubs and equipment), we have been granted official ‘Golfer’s Welcome’ accreditation from Failte Ireland for the year 2013 (2014 accreditations have not yet been administered). Add to this the personal relationship we share with the club (Rosslare Beach Villas owner, Peter, is a former captain) and we are confident that we are in a perfect position to help you to have as pleasant a golfing experience as possible while visiting Rosslare.

If you have a group or society that is interested in going on a golf-based trip, we will do all that we can, in cooperation with the club, to taylor our services and provide special group rates – just get in touch with us and we will be glad to organise a package that represents good value and which is tailored to your specific needs.

Prospective golfers from Wales/Britain should also note that at just 10 minutes drive from Rosslare Euro-port, Rosslare is an ideal golfing destination for those thinking of Ireland for future golfing holidays.

At just 9km from the Rosslare Beach Villas, St. Helen’s Bay Golf Club is also worth playing, while the general south-eastern region of Ireland offers a vast selection of courses to suit all tastes and levels.
