Course Description

Fota Island  Golf Club is located in the heart of a stunning 780 acre island woodland estate, in the County of Cork in the South of Ireland. The estate is home to splendid mature woodlands where three challenging championship courses are woven throughout. Amongst these three fantastic courses is the Deerpark Course, it is often referred to as the best and most enjoyable course here. This parkland course was originally designed by Christy O'Connor Junior and opened in 1993, it has underwent some improvements over the years to create the champion course it is today. It is a par 71 and measures 6,100 yards from the white tees.

The course enjoys stunning views across Cork Harbour, as it skirts the coastline. It benefits from an excellent design in a traditional form, it features strategically placed pot bunkers and undulating greens. It has a real variety of holes, that are well designed each with a unique charm or challenge. The course course passes through tree-lined fairways to green valleys. It gives the impression of being a mature course.

You can expect wide fairways, ample water hazards and moderate yet effective bunkering together, they provide a real challenge. A feature of this course are tiered greens that add another element to your game. The course is always in fantastic condition. The greens are perfectly manicured, true and fast, the fairways are wide and perfect, the rough is lush and it can be nasty. 

You will find it to be a fair but challenging course. Being surrounded by mature trees, the course is cloaked in peace and quiet, offering the ideal environment for the perfect game.

Our Favourite Hole

An amazing course which in our opinion saves the best for last! The 18th hole is a par 5 which measures just 464 metres (507 yards) from the championship tees. The fairway is tree lined and narrow, the green is protected on three sides by water. This makes this the best risk versus reward hole. An outstanding finishing hole to an outstanding championship course.
