Golfing in Waterville
The Southwest coast of Ireland is a mecca for golfers worldwide, with such famous courses as Ballybunion, Tralee, Old Head Kinsale and Killarney within reach. Waterville's own Championship Links, just 1 mile from the hotel and regarded by many as the jewel in the crown, has recently hosted many of the world's top ranking golfers, such as Tiger Woods, David Duval, Mark O'Meara and the late Payne Stewart. Today a life sized bronze statue pays tribute to his special relationship with Waterville.
WATERVILLE GOLF LINKS
Waterville is rated among the top 5 courses in Ireland and the top 20 links courses in the world. The course has embarked on a new chapter of its fabled history when noted international golf architect Tom Fazio was commissioned to update the memorable Eddie Hackett masterpiece. Fazio has assisted many of the worlds leading clubs including Winged Foot, Pine Valley and Augusta National. "Everything about Waterville is truly spectacular, said Fazio". "The setting is one of the best I have seen for golf".
