Golfing in Waterville
Waterville Golf Links
Waterville is rated among the top five courses in Ireland and in the top 20 links courses in the world.
The course 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".
Waterville's Championship Links is just 1 mile from the village and regarded by many as the jewel in the crown. They have 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 Stewart's special relationship with Waterville.
Hogs Head Golf Club
In July 2017, Hogs Head Golf Club soft-launched its Golf Course and Clubhouse - located in Waterville, Kerry County, Ireland. The owners, Bryan Marsal and Tony Alvarez, had a simple vision to create a world class golf course "built by friends, for friends" who share the love of the game of golf.
HHGC has breathtaking vistas including the Finglas River flowing through the course, majestic cliff holes overlooking Ballinskelligs Bay and the seaside charm of Waterville village.
The course was designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr. to seamlessly weave together the unique special beauty of the landscape with golf holes that flow naturally with a links feel.
The 48 suite Lodge at Hogs Head, with five cottages, is set on the shores of beautiful Lough Currane with stunning views.
