18 Holes at Cork GC

Cork Golf Club is my home course and I have taken many photos there down through the years. Here's a selection from them, 18 photos, one for each hole.

A little bit about the course. The club was formed in 1888 and moved to its current site in Little Island Cork not so long afterwards. The club is in an old abandoned quarry alongside the estuary of the River Lee. Alister MacKenzie of Augusta National, Cypress Point and Royal Melbourne fame redesigned the course in 1924 and his redesign forms the basis of the course we play today.

The club has been host to all the big Irish Golf Championships including the Irish Open and Irish Close down through the years. Many famous golfers including Jimmy Bruen, Denis O'Sullivan and Claire Coughlan have had Cork GC as their home club.

The limestone base of the course makes it free draining giving great turf conditions throughout the year.
