A Spectacular Golf Course in Co. Cork
Lee Valley Golf Club is an 18-hole Championship Golf Course designed by Ryder Cup Legend Christy O’Connor Jnr and calls the spectacular setting of Lee Valley in County Cork its home. The facility was officially opened by Christy and former US Masters Champion Fred Couples.
This Cork golf course is unique in design, with a Parklands-type setting that demands the skills required to complete a Links course because of ever-changing local wind conditions. The course affords the higher handicapper an enjoyable day’s golf while offering a stern test to anyone looking to break par. Water is a prime feature on seven holes and the greens are arguably the best in Cork.
The first hole, from a raised tee, highlights the majestic views and surroundings more than any other on the course. The par 72, 6700-yard layout packs a real punch so it’s important not to get too distracted by the scenery, and correct club selection and ball placement are paramount.
Lee Valley Golf & Country Club has the proud distinction of being included in the Golf Digest‘s Top 100 Irish golf courses on no less than three occasions.
