The Sandy Hills Course at Rosapenna has the advantage of modernity and youth. A blend of all that is great about traditional links courses with all of the benefits of modern design thinking, this course is a maze of dunes, constantly changing elevation and obscure fairways. This course opened for play in 2003 and measuring a hefty 7,255 yards from the tips was designed with championship play in mind. But with multiple tees on every hole, there is a length to suit all strengths.
Each hole is spectacular, and the views across the Old Tom Morris Links toward the beautiful Sheephaven Bay will provide many memories that will last a lifetime. Intended for the serious golfer, its narrow fairways appear constricting from the tee, but the landing areas sculpted from the dunes are deceptively wide. There are no average holes on the new layout, but the best come at the stretch of Nos. 6-13, which romp across the interior dunes. No doubt Old Tom would approve of what has become of this links land that he so keenly recognized more than a century ago.
