Waterville Golf Links, Waterville Ireland

Waterville Golf Links, Waterville Ireland Highlights

Visit beautiful Waterville Golf Links in southwest Ireland, Irish-American Jack Mulcahy’s lifelong dream-come-true on the Ring of Kerry, and you will see why it is a favorite of pros such as Woods, O’Meara, and the late Payne Stewart, who in their heydays made visits to this famous and scenic corner of Ireland most years prior to competing in the Open Championship. Not unlike renowned Muirfield in Scotland, Waterville Golf Links presents its layout in a challenging yet eminently fair and straightforward manner, each hazard laid out before you, with few surprises lurking. Architect Tom Fazio’s superb touches have made Waterville Golf Links the perfect compliment to Ballybunion and Tralee, equally challenging but a less difficult walk. Bow your head at Waterville’s Mass Hole, the par-3 12th, where the local Catholics risked execution by celebrating Mass in secret in the hollow short of the green. Then, genuflect on Mulcahy’s Peak, Waterville Golf Links’ 17th tee, founder Jack’s favorite spot on the links, while enjoying the 360-degree view that is Waterville’s most famous. Consider spending the night at peaceful Waterville House, owned by the club, and then play Waterville Golf Links a second time to do it right!
