Dr. Alister MacKenzie and Muskerry Golf Club
World-renowned golf course architect Alister MacKenzie’s first major engagement in the South of Ireland, in 1924, was at Muskerry Golf Club in County Cork when he presented plans for a course extension from nine holes to 18.
Dr MacKenzie’s opinion about the 8th hole (now the 6th ) is expressed in his report thus: “it should make one of the best short holes in existence and will be of a somewhat similar type to the famous Eden hole at St Andrews”.
MacKenzie designed well known Golf Courses in Ireland, Britain, Australia and America, including the famous Augusta National course.
