Waterville Golf Links

STATS: 

Par 72

Designed by: Eddie Hackett/Claude Harmon

Opened for Play: 1973


TEES

Championship Tees: 7,200 yards

Medal Tees: 6,640 yards 

Ladies Tees: 5,233 yards 


Eddie Hackett's original 1973 design has been re-mastered by the esteemed Tom Fazio, whose numerous projects have included involvement at Winged Foot, Augusta and the world's best course, Pine Valley. The small promontory that plays host to Waterville is as natural a setting for a golf course as you can find. Almost totally surrounded by the sea, the course challenges visitors with its raw links character, owing to the natural undulations and firm, fast turf.

The indigenous gorse and whins have been strategically placed, and like the devilish pot bunkers, represent a formidable challenge throughout. Traditional seaside tactics are the ones that work best around Waterville; the merciless coastal winds and the firm greens demand that golfers can work the ball, while keeping it low is definitely advisable.

Shortly before his, tragic death, the colourful Payne Stewart was named honorary Captain, such was his affinity with Waterville, and a bronze statue now commemorates the relationship. The warm welcome that all will receive in the comfortable clubhouse merely emphasises the quality of Waterville as a stop on any tour of Ireland's south-west.

The quality of the links turf is such that many of the top professionals choose to hone their seaside skills at Waterville in preparation for the Open Championship. Past visitors include Tiger Woods, Mark O'Meara, Stuart Appleby, Ernie Els, and Jim Furyk.

Waterville Golf Links

Best course of our trip. Fantastic condition, right amount of difficulty for an average golfer - but got harder on the back nine. Staff were great and helped us keep moving by spotting drives for us. All in all a great experience on a real links course.
