Designed by Christy O’Connor Jr, Roganstown opened in 2004. The course flows over a 300 acre estate which encircles a beautiful Georgian house, now home to the resort’s plush 52 bedroom hotel. This is a long, straight course where holes glide over a gentle landscape and between rolling, tree-planted mounds. Water plays a major role on 12 holes and the course has strong bunkering, but it is without doubt a driver’s course. The biggest test is the approach to well-defended greens. The par five 18th stretches to 600 yards from the back tees. That’s a challenging way to finish.
