There is an argument that Fota Island Golf Club is the
site of the second oldest golf club in Ireland as records suggest that the golf
was played there as far back as 1886. Regrettably though, the original nine
hole course fell into disrepair following the First World War and golf at Fota
Island was abandoned. It was not until 1993 that a new championship course was
developed at Fota Island and it hosted a number of major tournaments in its
early years. Following an extensive redesign in 1999, Fota is now rated as one
of the finest parkland course in the country and was host to the Murphy’s Irish
Open Golf Championships in 2001 and 2002.
