It gives me great pleasure to serve Cobh Golf Club as its President for 2017.
While the golf industry has struggled over the past decade, with 80,000 members leaving our golfing union nationally, Cobh Golf Club has stood out as a club by maintaining and increasing our Membership. We have also continued developing our course and our facilities over the past years.
I feel proud to be a member of our golf club, which I find to be warm, welcoming and friendly. I will endeavour to represent the club in this light during my term of Presidency.
Yours in Golf!

Cobh Golf Club Course Rules
Please read our course rules for a better experience.
Please avoid slow play at all times, remember if you lose a hole on the match in front you are expected to let the match behind play through.
Soft spikes are mandatory at Cobh Golf Club.
The use of mobile phones on the course is prohibited and phones should be switched off while on or near the course.
In practice you may only hit TWO balls from any tee box and only ONE ball onto any green. Tee pegs must be used when teeing off from all tee boxes. Take practice swings off the tee box. Keep trolleys to pathways and off the tee boxes.
How To Help Your Course
We all endeavour for a better golfing experience so please help where possible.
On the Tee
Do not replace divots but fill divot scars with a mixture of sand, soil & seed where possible. Do not take practice swings on the tee. Keep trolleys off the tees, in particular
avoid walking trolleys through the Ladies or forward tees when leaving the teeing ground.
On the Fairway
Replace all divots with care immediately. (Replace divots in the rough as well) Keep to pathways and walkways especially in Winter.
In the Bunker
Use the rake with both hands in a backward and forward motion after your ball has been hit out. Always leave the rake outside and parallel with the bunker.
On The Green
Repair all pitch marks, always carry a pitch fork in your bag and use it. A good rule is to repair your own plus one more. Never DROP the pin on the green. Never use your putter to scoop the ball out of the hole. Replace the pin carefully. Take care not to cause scuff marks with your shoes. NEVER take bags onto the green.
A FEW USEFUL REMINDERS
Always shout FORE whenever your ball is heading towards other players or green keepers. Look out for signs warning you that chemicals have been used on the course. Some of these may be harmful. Always carry a copy of the rules of Golf in your bag. Remember no one knows all the rules. If the greens are covered in frost and no “Course Closed” sign is up, please call the course Manager or Captain. If you feel you have a good suggestion please forward it in writing to the committee.
