Waterville Golf Links – Mesmerizing, Inspirational, Awesome and Magical are just some of the words which we can use to describe this amazing course. Set on the South West tip of Ireland, anybody who has played Waterville Golf Links has fallen in love with this gem and yearn to return.

Not alone is the course in pristine condition, each shot at Waterville requires thought and imagination which is matched by few other courses. Quite simply no two shots at Waterville are the same. What really makes this course one of the leading courses in the World is its setting with the Atlantic Ocean running parallel to several of the holes. Waterville offers exceptional views of “The Skelligs” which was recently chosen as a World Heritage Site. The Waterville House accompanies the famous Waterville Golf Links: an onsite Irish Manor House set on the Wild Atlantic Way. The onsite accommodation provides visiting golfers a chance to experience Irish hospitality on the doorstep of one of Ireland’s top golf courses. 

Golf at Waterville is a mystical experience – the beauty of classic links land, surrounded by the sea, yet forever challenged and shaped by the elements.

At over 100 years old, Waterville is rated among the top 5 courses in Ireland and the top 20 links courses in the world.

Links golf combines sand dunes gorse and native grasses, firm fairways, sod faced bunkers and subtle putting surfaces all intertwined by the ever changing weather.

Forget the lob wedge. Think bump and run and creative shot making. Are you ready to walk in the footsteps of Irelands earliest golfers!
