Golf Course/
Fota Island

The spectacular Fota Island Golf Club is just a few minutes drive from downtown Cork City, but as it sits on its own island, it feels a world away.

Located in the heart of a 780 acre estate, the splendid woodlands are woven into three challenging championship courses which are very much in the traditional mode, featuring strategically placed bunkers and undulating putting surfaces. The most difficult stretch is between the 10th and 14th holes, as that area of the course is surrounded by a multitude of small lakes and ponds.

Golf was first played at Fota Island as far back as the 1800s, but it wasn't until the 1990s that a new course was developed at Fota Island, designed by Irish Ryder Cup star Christy O'Connor Jr and twice English Amateur Champion Peter McEvoy.

The resort has hosted a number of tournaments, including the Irish Club Professional Championship, the Irish PGA Championship and no fewer than three Irish Amateur Opens. Fota Island was also home to the 2014 Irish Open. The club now boasts three championship standard golf course configurations: the original Deerpark, Belvelly and Barryscourt. All three are a treat.
