A great links golf course running alongside the Atlantic ocean. The sea grass accounted for several lost balls but our fore caddy was great guiding us in the windy conditions and spotting the landing site of wayward balls. Club house is ok but all the staff and course official were friendly and understanding of novice golfers. We would return.

The course is magnificent. Challenging and fair. Miss a fairway and punishment is severe. Weather will have a dramatic impact to your score. This is a great place to wrap up a Southwest Ireland golf trip.

My friend and I played today. We were early so they let us start early. We walked and did not see anyone until the 8th hole. On the 10th they let us through and we saw no one again. This is a beautiful course with a lot of great holes. I loved playing down in the dunes or over the... More

Played there in September 2015. I've played golf everywhere from Hawaii to Scotland and Waterville is as good as it gets. No wonder it was Payne Stewart's favorite course. Excellent playing conditions. The only complaint I have is that I thought the rental clubs left a little to be desired. Didn't ruin the day though.

This simply is the best golf I have ever played, everything is perfect, quality of the greens and fairways, the landscape, the view, the clubhouse. The green fee is expensive (170€) but it worths it.

The weather was lovely and it needs to be for enjoyable golf on an exposed coast like this. It is a wonderful place,looking westward to Ballinskelligs bay. The holes are long and the greens not too tricky. It is a links I feel that does not have too much of the mad bounces that often spoil ones enjoyment of links... More

I have now played Waterville five times over the years. This great course seems to get better every time I play there. The course is always a challenge, whether the wind blows or is calm. The views from every hole are out of this world gorgeous. As always, the course is in great shape from the tees to the greens.... More
