Fota Island Golf Club - Par 72 - 6,730 Yards

Fota Island takes its name from a small penisula jutting into Cork Harbour between Cork City and the heritage town of Cobh. The course is built in the grounds of a 780-acre estate and the mature woodlands are woven into the challenge together with the shoreline, bunkering and undulating greens.

The original design by Christy O'Connor Junior hosted several important tournaments before major redesign work was begun in 1998 following the purchase of Fota Island by the Killeen group, owners of Mount Juliet Golf Club in Kilkenny. The redesign work allowed the staging of the Murphys Irish Open at Fota Island in 2001 and 2002 in the home town of the title sponsors.
