Cork Golf Club is an 18-hole championship golf course located in Little Island near Cork city.

The Club was founded in 1888 and the course was redesigned by famous architect Alister MacKenzie in 1925. MacKenzie is famous for designing the home of the Master’s Golf Tournament, Augusta National Golf Club.

A unique and energetic golf course

The beauty of the surrounding Cork Harbour and Lough Mahon will inspire you, while the exciting diversity presents a thrilling challenge for any golfer and requires creative and energetic playing.

Founded on free-draining limestone, this championship course at Cork Golf Club presents a crisp playing surface, not unlike links. This also lends itself well to the challenge of navigating such a unique course. For example, players will discover a variety of unusual features, including a series of holes set in a disused limestone quarry.

Highlights

The Spanish Chestnut tree marks the Seve Ballesteros drive on the 11th hole during his visit to Cork GC on 15th August 1983. Seve birdied the hole and went on to shoot a bogey-free four under par 68.

Facilities

The pro shop at Cork Golf Club stocks a wide range of golfing equipment. The team is available to provide personal assistance with purchases. You will find clubs, golf buggies and trolleys available for rent.

Food & Drink

The particularly ‘old-world’ atmosphere of the Clubhouse is no doubt drawn from the rich history and elegance of Cork Golf Club.

Catering to all needs, guests can enjoy a full meal, a light snack in the clubhouse dining room, or follow a round of golf with a round of drinks in the comfortable bar and lounge area.
