About the Club

It would appear that golf was first played at Fota Island before November as far back as the 1800's.

In 1993, a new course was developed at Fota Island. It was designed by Irish Ryder Cup star, Christy O'Connor, Jr. and twice English Amateur Champion, Peter McEvoy. While essentially a resort course, it hosted a number of tournaments, including the Irish Club Professional Championship, the Irish PGA Championship and no fewer than three Irish Amateur Opens.

In the beginning of 1998, Fota Island Golf Club was purchased by the Killeen Group, the owners of the prestigious Mt. Juliet Resort in Kilkenny. Under the direction of Jeff Howes Golf Designs, work commenced immediately on upgrading the course to "European Tour Standards". The course reopened in September 1999, following an 18-month,multi million Euro programme that saw the rebuilding of all 18 greens, the redevelopment of all tees and the redesign of several of the holes.

In November 2004, The Fleming Group purchased Fota Island Golf Club and surrounding lands from Killeen Leisure Group Limited. The group has interests which stretch across a broad sector of industry and have established a very successful track record in the leisure industry through its ownership of the Inchydoney Island Lodge and Spa amongst others.

The Clubhouse at Fota Island Golf Club is the extremely creative conversion of old stone farm buildings. The exterior retains the original stonework as well as the original country feel which merges effortlessly into the surrounding landscape.

Inside, however, one is presented with a luxury that is more like a top-class hotel than a conventional golf clubhouse, with attractively appointed locker rooms and the wonderful ambience of The Spike Bar.

The Spike Bar

After a day's golf come and relax in the congenial atmosphere of the Spike Bar overlooking the iconic 18th green of the Deerpark course. Perfect for light snacks before you venture out or ideal for excellent après golf cuisine..

Groups & Events

The Clubhouse also offers a meeting room and dining options for up to 120 guests, serving only the highest quality Irish produce. Perfect for a Corporate Group, Society or even an intimate wedding party.
