Par 71, yardage 6,927. This traditional parkland tract is one of the most popular courses in the Emerald Isle - and rightly so. It was co-designed by well-known Irish professional Christy O'Connor Jr. and Peter McEvoy, the former amateur star who captained the winning Great Britain & Ireland Walker Cup teams in 1999 and 2001. The pair have come up with an absolute gem and, since 1995, Fota Island has hosted a number of top tournaments, most notably the Irish Open in 2001 and 2002. There's not a weak hole on the course and it ends with a great par-5, where the green is protected on three sides by water! Visitors are welcome seven days a week and, as you'd expect, the facilities here more than match the quality of the course.
