History of Roganstown
Denise McLoughlin built Swords Open Golf Course 25 years ago as a pay and play facility on part of the family farm at Roganstown. In 1996 Swords Golf Club was founded and since then Swords Golf Club has operated out of the Coillte Log Cabin Clubhouse on Balheary Avenue.
In 2004 the family engaged Christy O’Connor Jnr. to design the Roganstown Course on the rest of the farm and the Georgian Country House homestead was converted to a 52 bedroom hotel, with function rooms, restaurant and bars, and a state-of-the-art leisure centre.
The members bar for Roganstown Golf Club is housed within the hotel complex. Where many other clubs have been forced to curtail their food and beverage operations due to the downturn, Roganstown has continued to offer members food and beverage service from 7 am till late 7 days per week.
The Broadmeadow river flows through the land and water is a feature on many holes. There are rich gravel deposits underground at Roganstown which means that drainage is spectacular and both courses are playable 365 days of the year. Graham MacDowell played the course in November and said that the greens were among the best he had played all year.
Located in Swords, Co. Dublin and just four miles from Dublin airport the courses have hosted the Irish PGA Southern Championship in 2007, 2008 and 2009 and the Irish PGA Championship in 2013 and the Roganstown Course was the first venue in Ireland to host a EuroPro Tour Event in 2006.
From January 2006 it was decided to close the Swords Club house and rehouse the Swords Golf Club Members in the same clubhouse facilities as the Roganstown Club. The Swords Golf Course was rerouted so that the first hole on both courses are adjacent to one another.
The combined complex offers all members and guests access to 2 courses, extensive practice facilities, state of the art leisure centre and clubhouse facilities that are the envy of any club.
