It is situated to the south of Waterford, with the Comeragh Mountains forming an impressive backdrop.

The course benefits from a great layout and design as it curves along the rolling terrain and amongst the mature trees. The main features here are gentle undulating greens, trees and water, there are two streams that flow through the course, creating water hazards that need to be navigated on your way around.

Our Favourite Hole
Every single hole on the Old Course has something unique to offer. Our favourite is the par 5 16th Hole. It measures over 510 yards off the Championship Tees, this dogleg par 5 has dangerous bunkers to deal with off the tee, tree lined fairways, a lake to the front of the green and a large bunker to take care any shot that’s long. Happy golfing!
