In 1993 a new championship course was developed at Fota Island and it hosted a number of major tournaments in its early years. Following an extensive redesign in 1999, Fota is now rated as one of the finest parkland course in the country and played host to The Irish Open in 2001 and 2002. Fota Island sits tranquilly in Cork Harbour, just a short drive from Cork City, which is Ireland’s second largest city. A traditional parkland golf course, the club is located within a 780 acre estate, which also houses the Fota Island Wildlife Park and is included in the “Inventory of Outstanding Landscapes of Ireland”, while the splendid woodland and water features combine to create a challenging layout.
