Scheduled to tee off on June 19th 2014, The Irish Open is an annual event on the European Golf Tour that attracts professional local and international golfers to Irish shores. This increasingly popular summer fixture enjoyed record breaking attendance in recent years at neighbouring Killarney in 2010 and at Royal Port Rush, County Antrim in 2012. It is anticipated that this summer's tournament will encourage a similarly positive response with golf afficionados visiting Cork in high numbers to watch their golf heroes in action and to enjoy a round themselves on of some of the country's best golf courses. Boasting a superb selection of links and parkland golf courses, Cork is the ideal host county for this prestigious golfing tournament.
With it's central and easily accessible location in Cork city, Hayfield Manor provides the perfect base from which to tee off during any Cork golf holiday. Within a 25 mile (40 KM) radius, the bucket list links course at Old Head, Kinsale is easily reached for a spectacular day on the fairway. Home to this year's Irish Open, Fota Island Resort is a short 25 minute drive away and a round of golf at this impressive course affords the chance to precede or follow in the footsteps of the some of the biggest names in golf. For yet a closer option, Hayfield Manor is also located a mere 15 minute drive from the scenic, championship course at Cork Golf Club overlooking Cork harbour.
Rounds of golf, club hire, buggy hire, private chauffeurs and one-on-one coaching can be arranged at the majority of local Cork courses on your behalf. For a selection of our current golfing packages, please click here.
