Ahh the game of golf, so leisurely and competitive all at the same time. With Ireland’s semi-tropical and expansive green landscape, it is little wonder that golf is in abundance.
You are truly spoilt for choice, so we urge you to try them all! Here are a few nearby courses which will appeal to golfing newcomers and golfing masters alike:
• Douglas Golf Club

• Water Rock Golf Club
The Water Rock is a local favourite on the outskirts of Midleton, east Cork. This challenging course requires patience and skill to master all 18 holes. The 240 yard par 3 signature hole known as ‘Swan Lake’, a 200 yard carry over water and a climatic uphill finisher will warrant at least one pint in the bar. Maybe two, you’ve earnt it!
