COURSE DESCRIPTIONScenically situated in Cork Harbour, the club has played host to major Amateur and Professional Championships over the years, including the Irish Open, Irish Professional Championships, Irish Close Championships and the National Finals. This championship parkland course is as graceful and mature as its age would suggest.
Cork Golf Club was founded in 1888 and in 1927 the club were fortunate to secure the services of MacKenzie to re-design their existing course and under the critical eye of his assistant Jack Fleming, MacKenzie drew up a design which made full use of the dramatic terrain which is unique to Cork Golf Club.
The large undulating greens are fast and true. Getting tee shots into position to approach them is a large part of the challenge - there are several long carries from the tees. Cork is truly one of the finest challenges in Ireland. The scenery and variety are an added bonus and they all combine to make Cork Golf Club a true golf discovery.
Cork Golf Club is proud of its associations with the many famous and dedicated people who have contributed towards its success and its ranking among the famous golf clubs of the world.
