Golf Course/
Waterville

Adjacent to the Ring of Kerry, Waterville Links is located in one of the most beautiful areas of Ireland. Waterville is consistently rated one of the top five courses in Ireland and one of the top twenty links courses in the world. Many professionals, such as Tiger Woods, have visited Waterville to polish their skills prior to the British Open.

The combination of sand dunes, native grasses, firm fairways, sod faced bunkers and subtle putting surfaces at Waterville results in a perfect links course.

Every hole at Waterville Links is a masterpiece. Elevated tee boxes, which continue to rise as play progresses, allow players to see the flag in the distance, often tucked behind cascading dunes. The beginning holes are open over wide fairways, unlike the back nine, where dunes are larger and more prevalent.

"Waterville has to be one of the greatest golf courses ever built," said three-time British Open Champion Henry Cotton. "If it were located in Britain, it would undoubtedly be a venue for the British Open. I have never seen a more consistent succession of really strong and beautiful golf holes than here."
