New Training Packages for 2017

Fota Island Golf Academy is announcing its new training centre and membership package. The training centre now consists of two United States Golf Association (USGA) standard outdoor tees boxes, three USGA standard chipping and approach greens and a USGA standard putting surface.


Of particular note are the changes to the indoor facilities at the academy; two fully equipped practice rooms now feature Trackman launch monitors, which give precise details and statistics of ball connection, flight, clubhead speed, launch velocity, height, speed, arc and rotation, all instantaneously. Golf simulators are also available to use when winter conditions become too haphazard for practice.


Along with video analysis, short game, putting and family lessons (for all level h’caps), the new academy membership package also offers access to nine holes on Barryscourt course and reduced green fees on Deerpark course and full eighteen of Barryscourt course.


Annual membership for 2017 is €800 including driving range credit of up to €40 per week.
