Former world amateur No 1 Rory McIlroy won the inaugural Rosapenna Senior Scratch Cup in 2005. Now a new wave of budding stars can chase World Amateur Golf Ranking Points for the first time in the 11th edition of this popular 54-hole event at the stunning Donegal links from April 18-19 next year.
With fields in amateur golf becoming populated with younger, full time players, the traditonal championships have come under pressure to remain relevant.
Attracting a strong field that will generate a large number of world ranking point is now key and next April's tournament, which comes shortly after the West of Ireland Amateur Open, offers players a chance to chip away some winter rust before the season gets into full swing.
The field at Rosapenna will also be boosted by the fact that the resort's Sandy Hills Links will host the Men's Interprovincial Championship from July 6-8.
Not only that, the list of former winners is a strong one with Simon Ward, Connor Doran, Dermot McElroy, Aaron Kearney, Matt McAlpin and Eddie McCormack all lifting the trophy.
In what will be a busy 2015, Rosapenna also hosts its Junior Scratch Cup for five to nine handicappers on Saturday, 6 June and the Irish Women's Amateur Close Championship on the Old Tom Morris Links from June 20-23.
