Fota Island Golf Course
The spectacular setting on Galway Bay and the Atlantic Ocean is a distractingly beautiful and cleverly designed mix of holes offering the promise of wonderful golf memories. This parkland course incorporates numerous water hazards including Galway Bay which surrounds the course on three sides.

Fota Island is located in the heart of a 800 acre estate which is also home to the Fota Wildlife Park.

Water plays a big part in this wonderful parkland golf course with lakes, rivers and Cork Harbour just waiting for the errant shot. Having large welcoming greens and in the case of the 8th and 14th greens, they are one double green following St. Andrews design, giving the golfer an opportunity to score.

Its sister property is the Mount Juliet Estate which has held the American Express Championship where Tiger triumphed. There will be sibling rivalry for many years to come between Mount Juliet and Fota Island as Fota too is an ideal venue for championship golf events as is evident from being host to two European tour events already.

Fota has held two Irish Open events, an Irish Amateur Open and an Irish PGA Championship.
