History of Cork

Instituted 1894 affiliated 1900

The archives of Cork Golf Club were lost in a fire in 1945, which leaves the history of golf in Cork very unclear.

The Golfing Annual 1895-96 gives its institution date as 1st November 1894, located at Killahora as a nine-hole course, five minutes walk from Queenstown Junction Station. The first President was H. R. O’Kearney, Captain, G. Galway, and the Hon. Secretary was G. T. Harley, 41 South Mall, Cork.

The Rathconey Cup was lost in the 1945 fire, which was its oldest trophy, dating back to 1894.

The club moved to its present location in October 1898, which was a mile nearer to Cork City and the course at Killahora was only playable in winter. Mr. A. F. Sharman-Crawford J.P., President from 1898-1916 and Mr. H. H. Maudsley, the Captain in 1899, are credited with discovering the course on a trip upriver from Passage West. Tom Dunn, of the famous Musselburgh Dunn family, laid out the original nine-hole course, and it extended to eighteen, sometime between 1910 and 1916.
