Opened in 1994, this high quality sand based greens course set in the beautiful surroundings on the banks of the Owenacurra River brings varying challenges for all caliber of golfer. The course lies in the hinterland of beautiful East Cork, 15 mins drive from Cork city and sits in close proximity to some of the great golf courses in Southern Ireland. The layout is fair yet strategic – rewarding the brave while also providing wide bailout areas. Several scoring opportunities exist on the neat and alluring front nine but should not lead to complacency! The acclaimed back nine at Water Rock, where water comes into play during no less than five holes, is a real test of character and golfing ability.

The 18 holes, par 70, 6220 yard course includes 5 par threes and 3 par fives. The signature hole is the Par 3 on the 12th, 240 yards from the back tee and known locally as “Swan Lake”. This hole has been described as ‘One of the Best 50 Holes in Europe’. The climax to the round comes with the superb sequence of finishing holes designed around three lakes, culminating in the outstanding par 4 on the 18th hole played uphill into the prevailing wind.

The course was designed by renowned Golf Course Architect Mr. Paddy Merrigan whose work also included the Old Head of Kinsale, Slieve Russell and WoodenBridge, along with many others high quality golf courses.
