Fota Island: The Key Holes

Fota Island: The Key Holes

July 2nd, 2012

The 888poker.com PGA EuroPro Tour heads to Cork this week for the Audi Cork Irish Masters at Fota Island.

The event will be played on the resort’s Deerpark Course and below Fota Island’s Director of Golf Kevin Morris picks out five of its key holes.

Three
Par: 3; Yards: 165
“The third is a tricky par three with water short on the right and left and a bunker at the back of the green.”

Eight
Par: 4; Yards: 478
“This is a great par four. It’s a left-to-right dog leg with a ditch running up the left hand side for your second shot, turning into a lake on the left-edge of the green. Then you have four bunkers left of the green, so it is a really good hole where your second shot will probably be about 200 yards.”

Ten
Par: 5; Yards: 500
“Ten is a short, downhill par-five which has out-of-bounds off the tee on the right and trees down the left and the green is surrounded on three sides by water. It’s quite a short shot in there – I reckon the professionals will be using short to mid irons – but it is one where, even after hitting the fairway, you could still run up seven.”

Twelve
Par: 4; Yards: 428
“There are no bunkers on the 12th but it has a water hazard on the left which runs across the fairway at about 300 yards.”

Eighteen
Par: 5; Yards: 507
“The 18th is the only genuinely tight driving hole on the golf course but a drive to the top of the hill is going to leave you a long to mid iron into the green. The green is a small green which is surrounded again by water on three sides. It is a good, strong finishing hole.”
