Tom Doak's dream has become a reality with his first Irish links design.

Golf Course Review

St Patrick's Links at Sheephaven Bay, in County Donegal, Ireland is a  joint partnership with Tom Doak and Rosapenna Hotel & Golf Resort to turn a 36-hole dormant golf course into an 18 hole world-class links.

St Patrick's Links Construction Team

The original 36 holes were designed by Eddie Hackett and Joanne O'Haire. In the early 2000s, Jack Nicklaus was meant to redevelop the land but the plans never materialised. What would have been just another golf course for the multi-national conglomerate became a passion project for Tom Doak and company. Eric Iverson, Clyde Johnson and Angela Moser, along with agronomist Gordon Irvine, all played massive roles in bringing the plan to fruition.

St Patrick's Links Mission

The Casey's, the family behind Rosapenna, purchased the adjacent estate and set about instructing Tom Doak. The drive behind the layout at St Patrick's Links is quality over quantity. Where once was 36 there is now 18. With the grow in well underway and no public play during 2020, the course looks set to welcome the world in 2021!
