Characteristics

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 Golf Professional Christy O’Connor Jnr and Peter McEvoy, former Walker Cup Captain, in 1993. It was redesigned in 1998/99 by Jeff Howes Golf Design creating an absolute gem. Since 1995, Fota Island has hosted a number of top tournaments, most notably the Irish Open in 2001 & 2002 and the Irish Seniors Open in 2006. There’s not a weak hole on the course and it ends with a magnificent par 5, where the green is protected on three sides by water!

FOTA’S NEW ADDITIONS An exciting new 9 hole course has recently been completed alongside the existing championship course. The new course features a world class layout with some very challenging features to test the most competitive golfer.

A new Academy at Fota Island boasts 4000 sq. meters of first class turf to practice clean crisp iron shots with a separate chipping green surrounded with bunkers. There is also a new gently undulating outdoor putting green and as the short game is so important a new pitching area with various targets up to 100 meters away. Lessons can be booked for individuals or groups.

Great parkland

Fota is a long hitter paradise. Very well-kept facility which promises a great day of golf. The weather in Ireland is not the responsibility of the course... Moderately varied and no particular surprises, but very stable parkland. Not a bargain but worth the money. There are other treasures in the area.

Pretty parkland island

Deer Park Course
Played on 5.6.2019, HCP 11

Who expects a links course due to the name "Iceland", will be disappointed. On some tracks, although water comes into play - mostly laterally, rarely frontal - but it is a beautiful, but in no way any special Parkland course. Optically chic, with some impressive trees and a great final hole with peninsula green, chic planting and overlooking the pretty clubhouse.
Apart from the ponds, the course also defends itself with many large but well-playable bunkers.
The greens are very fast, not always easy to read and in very good condition - even the rest of the course is in good condition.

Unfortunately, on more than half of the railways, a motorway / country road casts its weight on the course - and not just a car drives by that. :-( That's pretty annoying.

A cart is not needed - only a few tracks are moderately hilly.

Conclusion: Solid 3 stars - no more and no less. Play time, if you are in the vicinity (and not be frightened by street noise) - extra travel is not worth it. (In the "Golf Bear Ranking": 6 out of 10 points.)

Very well-kept parkland course

Without question a top facility. Fast greens and very good fairways. For 40 € in the early bird special definitely a bargain. With about 6500 meters of the professional discounts but in wind and rain very difficult to play. Several tee-offs offer an alternative for each player class.
