Skibbereen and West Carbery Golf Club has a pleasant 18 hole course situated on the outskirts of Skibbereen town 6Km from Baltimore in South - West Cork.
Tourism is a thriving industry in West Cork. The absence of industrialisation has kept the environment unspoilt and unpolluted and the region has striven to develop its infrastructure to cater for the many varied tourist requirements.
The course (almost 6000 yards long) has 3 par fives, 4 par threes and 11 par fours. Particularly interesting are the two par 3's one with a concealed green, the other with an elevated one. There is also a scenic lake (half hidden on approach to 5th. green) and well positioned to trap wayward shots on another three holes. The Skibbereen course is normally uncrowded especially off peak tourist months. It extended (across Baltimore Road) to 18 holes in mid 1993.
Full bar and restaurant services, Caddy cars for hire.
Skibbereen Golf Club have agreed a special green fee of €20 to be made available to guests of Casey's of Baltimore Hotel.
The green fees are to be paid at the clubhouse in advance for which a voucher/ receipt will be issued and visitors are advised to reserve the tee times in advance.
