Course Information

A previous host to the Irish Open in 2001 and 2002, this is a golf course with the bar set high. This is a long course, set at nearly 7,000 yards and will push your drive to its limits. Despite the wide fairways and forgiving rough, there are plenty of water hazards to catch you off guard, so bring plenty of golf balls with you. The closing hole is one of the most memorable, with a tiered green and more water features so accuracy is key. This hole could make or break your score so treat it with the utmost care; a tough but rewarding challenge.

    Deerpark course at Fota Island a worthy championship venue

    Let's get a few things straight before this review. I played in the 2014 Irish Open pro-am with Edoardo Molinari. That made for a great experience (and the one-star rating for pace of play). The Deerpark course was in immaculate shape. The rough was nasty. The fairway cuts were clean and checkered in some spots. I played Deerpark in conditions as good as it will get. It was definitely a four-star experience. It's a strong routing with a pair of daunting back-to-back par-5s on the front nine. Three of the par 3s are laced with water. The par-5 18th finishes at a peninsula green jutting into the water, a risk-reward ending for those who try to reach it in two. If you're in Cork, it's a tough choice between playing Fota or The Cork Golf Club. One has hosted multiple Irish Opens; the other's a restored Alister MacKenzie. You decide.
