Course Details

Course Name: Cork Holes: 18 Yardage: 6115 SSS: 72
Cork Championship parkland course designed by Alister MacKenzie, will test golfers of all standards and they will bring away with them memories of a great days golf. The course has many unique features, not least holes 6-10 which are set in a disused limestone quarry. The golfer who can finish with par 4's, will have played golf to the highest standard. The signature hole is the 4th, where the golfer must carry the Lee estuary from the tee, while the green is perched on the edge of the quarry.

    A party from the Hampshire Professional Golfers' Association, consisting of seventeen pro-am teams, played at Cork Golf Club on Friday 12th October 2001 and thoroughly enjoyed the golf course. The combination of parkland and links terrain provides an excellent test of golf that was enjoyed by professionals and amateurs alike. Two professionals, Rob Edwards and Jon le Roux, tied for first place on four-under-par 68 while the leading pro-am team was led by Kevin Saunders with Gary Smith, Andy Doswell and Neil Foulkes.
    The Hampshire PGA's thanks go to Cork Golf Club for the warm and friendly welcome extended to the members of our party.

    Without doubt the most challenging test of golf in south Munster, and that's on a calm day. It offers a wide selection of tees so a fantastic day of golf is guaranteed to players of all levels, and the hospitality at the 19th is second to none. Perfection PERSONIFIED.

    Our foursome began our recent 9-day golf trip to Ireland with a round at this charming club at Little Island. Even a day-long rain storm was unable to dampen our enjoyment of this interesting and challenging course. The first three holes are benign enough, the uphill par-four first followed by a downhill par-five and then a short two-shotter which presents you with a very real birdie chance.
    But then the holes get decidedly tougher: four and five run parallel with the estuary and are well-designed and visually stunning. Turning away from the river, the next six holes wind through and along an old quarry, presenting you with an ever changing assortment of challenges. The final stretch of holes is parkland golf, and, while not as varied or interesting as what preceded them, they are fun to play in their own right.
    The greens were in excellent condition...even the few which had recently been aerated putted well. Be sure to stop in the clubhouse lounge upstairs for a pint when finished; the views of the course are wonderful, and the members are friendly and seem genuinely interested in your opinion of their course, which, in our case, was very high indeed.

    Played this course last September'97. In beautiful condition and a joy to play. In fact this was the nicest course of several we played. Worth a visit. It is in great condition. The fairways and the tees were well manicured, and the layout is a challenge to good and not so good golfers alike.
