Fota Island Golf Club is just a few minutes drive from Cork City's international airport and passenger ferry terminal. It is located in the heart of a 780 acre estate which is included in "The Inventory of Outstanding Landscapes in Ireland". 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.
This course incorporates some unique and exciting features intended to challenge even the most competitive golfer yet, remaining perfectly loyal to the traditional style, values, and playability that characterise Fota Island Golf Club as a whole.
The 16th hole promises to be one of the features of this exciting new challenge – a 435 yard Par 4 requires an accurately placed tee shot where finding the fairway is at a premium, allowing those without the burden of a faint heart to take on the daunting approach over an old quarry to a small target.
