Following the success of our own version of the Augusta experience during the Golf Masters, the Fota Island Golf Resort Ireland is please to introduce another great themed series of events that will coincide with the next three golf majors!
Based on the winning formula that saw us here at Fota Island Golf Club in Cork channel a small bit of Georgia during Masters Week, the Open Singles competitions will be held over the course of the next 3 majors along with some delicious après golf cooking reflective of each Major!
Open singles competitions will take place on:
13th – 16th June to coincide with the US Open
18th – 21st July to coincide with the Open Championship in Scotland
8th – 11th August to coincide with the PGA Championship in New York
Take to our Deerpark Course and be inspired by the pros this summer during some of the most enjoyable golf tournaments from around the world. Emulate your hero’s and make your own bit of history, for the cost to enter each Open Singles competition is just €35 per golfer and the winner of each event will be entered into a play-off to win a tailor made set of irons!
Once the hard work is done on the greens and the fairways, relax in the Spike Bar, where you can enjoy some seriously good themed cuisine from the chefs of our Cork Restaurants, such as Philly cheesesteak sandwich, Harrisburg style meatloaf and grand cherry pie with clotted cream, to make you feel like you’re dining in Pennsylvania this June!
Then in July, the themed menu focuses on Scotland, with kippers with sautéed curly kale and creamed potatoes, Scotch pie with rumbledethumps and cranachan for afters, to be indulged in over the Open Championship weekend. Before finally, in August, while the PGA Championship is in full swing in New York, Fota Island Golf Club guests can enjoy New York style hot dogs topped with fried onions, mustard, and ketchup with slaw salad and French fries, New Yorker thin crust pizza with tomato sauce, pepperoni, salami, mushrooms, red peppers and buffalo mozzarella cheese, and vanilla baked cheesecake with strawberry compote.
