Mahon Golf Course is located on the Ted McCarthy Municipal Course. It is set between Clover Hill and the estuary of the Douglas River and commands a delightful view of Lough Mahon and the gently sloping hills of Rochestown. In 1978, Cork City Council commissioned Eddie Hackett to design an 18-hole golf course on the Mahon Peninsula. This was to Ireland's first purpose-made municipal golf course and was financially assisted by the Golfing Union of Ireland. The course was officially opened on 3 September 1980. As it is now constituted, the course proves a very challenging test to all grades of golfers. The rolling terrain offers golfers of all abilities an entertaining round of golf and an enjoyable day out. Visitors are more than welcome at this course, which is close to Cork city.
