Welcome to Mahon Golf Course, located on Ireland''s first purpose made Municipal Golf Course. In 1978 Cork City Council commissioned Mr. Eddie Hackett to design an 18-hole golf course on the Mahon Peninsula. This was to be Ireland''s first purpose made Municipal Golf Course and was financially assisted by the Golfing Union of Ireland. The Course was officially opened on the 3rd September 1980 and is called the Ted McCarthy Municipal Golf Course. The course as it is now constituted proves a very challenging test to all grades of Golfers.
