Full Course Review

Of the three courses at Fota Island Resort the Deerpark Course is the one to play. The original 18 were opened in 1993 and designed by Christy O'Connor and Peter McEvoy. In 1998, Jeff Howes was invited in to prepare and toughen the course to host the Irish Open. Jeff Howes was then invited back in 2007 to add an additional nine holes which are used to create three distinct 18 hole setups. The other two courses are called the Belvelly and Barryscourt.

As with any parkland course in Ireland or the United Kingdom, getting visitors from the links inland is a tall order. However, praise is almost universal with regards the quality of the golf on offer. The Fota Island Resort Deerpark Course is perhaps one of the best in Ireland once you move inland.
