RUDDY GOLF DESIGN AT WORK IN CO. SLIGO & DONEGAL
Pat Ruddy's golf design work continues at lovely Donegal and nearby at the County Sligo Golf Club at Rosses Point.
Current work at Donegal involves new fairway bunkering and a new green at hole seventeen.
The great links at Rosses Point is really close to his heart as he played here as a boy in the 1950s and his programme of improvements to this Harry Colt masterpiece is progressing under the banner "Revitalising A Classic".
Works completed at the end of 2015 included considerable extensions to greens 1, 2, 5, 7 and 10; a new green at hole 3; new championship tees at holes 1, 5, 8 and 11; and new bunkering at holes 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 10 and 11. The work continues at a premeditated steady pace.
