"Everything about Waterville is spectacular, the setting is one of the best I have seen anywhere in golf"
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.
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?
