Quite simply the most spectacular golf course in the world: This
incredible spit of land has you playing golf a mile out to sea. Stunning
setting for a unique golfing experience.
Expensive? Yes: but worth every Euro to play here (and Green-fees have come down recently due to the economic straits Ireland is suffering).
Founded in 1888 and re-modelled in 1927 by Dr. Alastair McKenzie (whose other great work was a certain course in Augusta, Georgia) this is an absolute must for any golfers staying in Cork. Wonderful variety of holes along the river and in and out of the old Cork quarry.Fota Island Architects: C. O’Connor Jnr. & P. McEvoy. 18 holes: 6488yds: par 71.
An Irish Open course. Not overly long, but the twisting fairways and numerous water hazards demand thought on every shot. A modern classic, that will test your golf in every department.
