golf in West Cork

If golf is your thing you have an abundance of courses within half an hour’s drive and some world class challenges a little further afield.

Play locally at the Skibbereen Golf Club, a parkland course 15 minutes’ drive away. Another parkland course, Clonakilty Golf Club, lies in the grounds of the fairytale Lisselan Estate a little further afield in Clonakilty. Further afield in the other direction are Bantry and Glengarriff courses, with fantastic sea views from most holes. An hour away east are the world class Old Head course at Kinsale, and of the numerous courses around Cork City, perhaps Fota Island, three times host of the Irish Open with its three 18 hole courses, is among the best. (It does have the advantage that there’s also Fota Island Wildlife Park nearby for the non-golfing members of the family!)

Need a trolley? We have a few in the garage.
