Course Details

Course Name: Bantry Holes: 18 Yardage: SSS:
The 18 hole championship course open all year, towers above the head of Bantry Bay, in far West County Cork. Fourteen holes immediately overlook the shore where warm waters of the Gulf Stream first touch land on this side of the Atlantic. Fuchsias abound, and there are splendid panoramic views across the sea and islands to the Breara Mountains, Sheep's Head and the Mizen Peninsula. They have created a course on which the Scratch golfer must thoughtfully exert himself to achieve Par 71, while a handicap golfer, too, has a fair chance of glory. Great variety, from a Par 3 of a mere 126 metres to a par 5 of 487m to a two tier green, demands skilful versatility.
For an appreciation and independent view of this course please see golfer reviews.

    Can you tell me , how far is the course from the port of Cork. We will arrive at 07:00am on June 6th, 2004 and depart at 6:00pm. Does this give us enough time to play 18.

    I played this course in March of this year and the fairways were a bit sodden, but the course is a very demanding challenge. Careful use of the golf bag is needed, the shots are varied and always something different at the next hole.
    Hopefully the 1st hole is finished now as it was being redeveloped on my day out. This course will test the best, and is great value for money.When the weather improves I will be back in Bantry Bay GC.
