Fota Island Resort, three-time host to the Irish Open, is maintained to the very highest standards, ensuring year-round golfing enjoyment. This high standard is achieved through constant, vigilant maintenance from Con O’Driscoll, Course Superintendent, and his team of over seventeen associates dedicated to preserving the award-winning courses.
