History

 
“As a waterfront course, it is spectacularly located overlooking Bantry Bay and I hope it will be as rewarding to play as it has been to design.”
Christy O’Connor Junior, Ryder Cup Star 1989

“There are few more beautifully located or more delightful golf courses in the whole of Ireland”
Charlie Mulqueen (Irish Examiner)

“Bantry Bay is a formidable test, in a breathtaking location”
Dermot Gilleece, (The Irish Times)

“Irelands best kept golfing secret”
Dan Rooney, (Pittsburgh Steelers), USA

“Located in scenic West Cork, Bantry Bay is as alluring as golf gets. 
The terrain is reasonably difficult, there isn’t a flat or straight hole to be found but the challenges are exciting without being too taxing and the views
stunning. The 8th is the only hole apart from the par 3s where you can actually see the green when standing on the tee. Sounds complicated but it isn’t really. Bottom line is, Bantry Bay Golf Course is a lot of fun and definitely a course that you will want to return to and play again.”
Ivan Morris, Columnist and Author

“I have worked on and played many courses throughout the world and I rank Bantry Bay Golf Course as one of the best I have played. Congratulations on such a fine test of golf.”
Mike Pomfret, Chairman of British Association of Golf Constructors

“Your course is certainly the “Hidden Jewel” in Ireland. I have played all over the South West of Ireland, all the “tops” but Bantry Bay is the most spectacular and perfect conditions.
Thank you so much we shall recommend Bantry to everyone in North America”

Bernard Marsden, USA.

“A great golfing experience, course in excellent condition & pinpoint shot making required”
Mike Cinelli, Vice President Union Bank, The Olympic Club, USA.

“A beautiful course, in beautiful surroundings, looking forward to coming back one day”

“You could travel the world and not match the standard of the beauty of this golf course.
