Cork (and indeed Ireland in general) is a golfers paradise.  No matter where you stay
in Ireland you can be sure that you are not far away from at least one decent Golf
Course.
Below are over 20 Clubs that are a reasonable drive time from Cork City . **Drive time
depends on time of day and some roads are ‘faster’ than others due to
surface etc**.
  A sign immediately after the name of the club denotes that the green fees are
Expensive but not necessarily prohibitive.
  Miles from city is approximate but fairly accurate. 
At time of going to Press, many websites could not be easily found.  This does not
mean they do not exist.
  In all cases a phone call is best for any queries.
