“Payne Stewart.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

Have a look at the famous monument of American Ryder cup player Payne Stewart near the first tee. They do an early bird special if you want a discount and you are an early riser.

“LINKS AT IT'S BEST”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

This is old and fair.
Every which way you turn on every hole you have a view to last you a lifetime.
The welcome you get here is second to none the ladies in the reception ,Noel the GM ,Kevin the Starter,Linda in the pro shop and staff behind the bar too many to name are all great.
DO NOT come and play once come and sty for a week and play it a few time so you can really get to know it and like all before you fall in love with it's grace and charm!

“Heaven on Earth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

The most beautiful and challenging course I have ever played. In my opinion, it's better than any course I have had the pleasure of playing in the U.S. including the Country Club, Olympic, Congressional, Sawgrass, Pebble Beach, etc.

There are good reasons why the world's leading professionals play here before St. Andrews. It's a true links course that overwhelms you with its beauty and the difficulty of its natural layout.

The staff are like old friends. The course is meticulously cared for. The atmosphere in the club house and small bar is like your favorite 19th hole - understated, unpretentious and welcoming.

Whether you're a scratch golfer or a 20 handicap (like me) a round at the Waterville Golf Links will be a visit to heaven on earth.

“Stunning course”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

This course provided a true initiation into golf in Ireland - challenging terrain, wonderful seaside vistas, changes in elevation, and a true links course. The day I played it also provided an initiation into Irish weather - we started in a gentle rain, which turned into a howling rainstorm before finally clearing as we played the last holes which provide spectacular coastline views. Not to be missed when planning a trip to the southwest of Ireland!
