Course Overview

Waterville Golf Links is laid out on an isthmus of natural dune-land, bordered on its western flank by the Wild Atlantic Ocean, its Northern boundary by the Inny river, its Eastern verge by the Inny Estuary, and on its Southern margin with native bogland. This unique site location ensures a complete and unspoilt visual and audible environment– affording a unique tranquillity that is unmatched in golf.

The towering dune-land, and the genial course layout, assures that each hole is set apart from one another, while the natural dune flora frames the fairways and greens with pictorial and sensory delight. The Irish Hare is our most noticeable inhabitant of the links, and sits proudly as our course emblem, but keep a look out for our many other inhabitants – there are over fifty different species of birds alone that inhabit or frequent the links on a regular basis.

The Links itself is an Eddie Hackett/Tom Fazio design – a par 72, championship  course with five sets of tees, starting at 5370 yards, stretching all the way to almost 7350 yards. There is a course length for every standard of golfer, and the firm links turf, combined with natural sea-breezes, will inspire to create a full range of golf shots. The links comprises four Par 3’s, ten Par 4’s and four Par 5’s, with each hole meandering in a different direction through the dunes or along the boundaries. Each hole possesses its own collection of challenges and vistas, but what sets Waterville apart – there are no blind shots – what you see, is what you get…

To encourage the golfer to be fully prepared for the links, our warm-up facilities include a full-size practice range, three putting and chipping greens, and also, a dedicated practice putting green. The 9th hole comes back to the clubhouse, where light bites and refreshments can be ordered in our quaint Halfway House. Our friendly and efficient staff will ensure that you are quickly on your way – fed, watered and ready for the challenge of the back 9!

The 18th green also comes back to the amazing clubhouse, which has been extensively-renovated to include luxurious locker room facilities, and a 2500 square foot, fully-stocked golf shop, offering an extensive range of our hare-branded apparel. Upstairs, you will find the 1889 Bar & Restaurant, which has commanding views of the links and all the surrounding area from every seat. Our service team are as attentive as they are welcoming, and our commitment is to make a visit to our Links, memorable from the time of arrival, to the very last second of departure.
