History

 
Bantry Bay Golf Club invites visitors to enjoy one of the most beautiful and challenging golf courses in Ireland,
“The Best in the Southwest”.

It was always likely to be special when Bantry Bay became the canvas for Christy O’Connor Junior and Eddie Hackett to design a USGA standard course.

The result of their vision (Hackett, 1975 and O’Connor, 1997) is a 170-acre course that ticks all the boxes for an excellent golfing destination.

Winding its way around the spectacular parkland 18-hole course is an even more spectacular coastline that can be experienced on 14 of the 18 challenging holes.
The par 3 9th green is high above Bantry Bay and the elevation brings spectacular 180-degree views of Bantry House, The Sheeps Head, Whiddy Island and Hungry Hill, all famous tourist destinations.

6719 yards (6144m) in length, Bantry Bay serves up a nice challenge to the scratch and handicap golfer alike and with holes varying in length from the 126 metre par 3, to the long 487 metre par 5.
This course is sure to provide a fair test to the visiting golfer.

Clubhouse

The new clubhouse, which was completed in 2000, offers spectacular views over the course and of the Bay and is open to the public and members alike so all are welcome to drop in at any time to sample the atmosphere on the edge of the bay.

History

 
The clubhouse also boasts a very well stocked shop where you will find a lovely selection of golf merchandise with the Bantry Bay Golf Club logo.

While Bantry Bay’s primary role is as a golf club, the clubhouse and bar facilities are also made available for parties and other celebrations, with the fantastic views providing great photo opportunities.
Bar and catering facilities are arranged to suit every requirement.
