Water Rock Golf Course

Water Rock Club Crest

Water Rock Golf Course is located just 15-minutes from Cork City on the outskirts of Middleton. A Championship golf course with magnificent sand based greens situated in a beautiful parkland setting. Boasting spectacular water features, Water Rock prides itself on being maintained to a very high standard. Indeed the renowned 240 yards, 12th hole, which plays over "Swan Lake" to a bunker-less green, ensures the return of visitors time and time again.

The new clubhouse complements this Paddy Merrigan designed course. Visitors are always welcome to relax in the warm ambience of Water Rock Golf Course.

Although regarded as a Pay as you Play course, Water Rock does indeed have a members club. When Harbour Point Golf Club closed in 2009 a group of about 120 ladies from the club decided to join Water Rock and affiliate to the ILGU and set you their own club known as Harbour Point Ladies Club. New members to the club are always welcome and made very much at home in this all Ladies Club.
This is apparently not a very well known fact as when the Irish Open was played just down the road at Fota Island in 2014 the Captain’s and Lady Captain’s from every club in Ireland were invited but somehow the Lady Captain from the nearest club to Fota was not issued an invitation? Strange.
