About Waterville Golf Links:
Nestled in a quiet fishing village along the spectacular Southwest coast of County Kerry, Waterville Golf Links is surrounded by some of the most majestic landscapes in all of Ireland and is the centerpiece of Waterville. In 2006, distinguished course architect Tom Fazio was commissioned to redesign the course, a project that transformed Waterville into one of the very finest courses in the world. The magic of Waterville Golf Links rests in its subtlety. There is nothing gimmicky about Waterville but make no mistake about it: the course is deceptive and scoring well requires you to manage blustering winds and to keep the ball in the fairway. Upon completion of the redesign, Fazio himself extolled Waterville by listing it as one of his top three golf courses along with Pine Valley and Augusta National. And just last year, Golf Digest called Waterville “one of the finest links golf courses in the world, never mind Ireland.” There is a reason that great champions like O’Meara, McDowell, Woods, Stewart, and Els have played this course in preparation for the Open Championship over the years.
In addition, Waterville is the home to some of the most famous sea trout and salmon fishing in Ireland. Click here for more information regarding nearby lakes and rivers.
