" /> Founded in 1975, Bantry Bay Golf Club in Co Cork has been described as "one of the most spectacular golf courses in the world" and visitors have long been enthralled by the charms of West Cork and this delightful course.

The 6,690 yard 18 Hole Championship Course is to the far West of County Cork, the entire course is at the head of Bantry Bay, with the mountains of the Beara
Peninsula to the north, and Sheep's Head and the Mizen to the south. It's a breathtaking location where fourteen holes immediately overlook the shore and the landscape can change almost by the minute, depending on the time of year. The warm Gulf Stream first touch land here on this side of the Atlantic, Fuchsias abound, and there are splendid panoramic views across the sea and islands.

Course architects Eddie Hackett and Christy O'Connor Jnr., of Ryder Cup fame, in keeping with USGA standards, have adapted some 170 acres of picturesquely undulating scenery - even the six lakes and other hazards would charm a landscape artist.

They have created a course on which the scratch golfer must thoughtfully exert himself to achieve Par 71, while the Handicap golfer, too, has fair chance of glory. Great variety, from a Par 3 of a mere 126 meters to a Par 5 of 487 meters to a two-tier green, demands skilful versatility.
