Championship Links, beautiful yet pure – a mystical experience – Links land is a geological rarity. Less than one percent of all courses in Europe are championship links. Waterville is honored to be included among the very best of these in a prestigious Golf World survey. It is one of the oldest Irish Clubs, having been founded in 1889 with the arrival of the trans-Atlantic telegraph cable from the United States. After 80 years of play, the original nine hole course was redesigned by the famous Irish golf architect, Eddie Hackett and the late owner, John A. Mulcahy. The course gradually introduces the player to its special tempo and rhythm and concludes with a symphony of links beauty. From Henry Cotton to Mark O’Meara and Tiger Woods, all have praised its perfection.
Waterville also became a favorite place for Payne Stewart to visit, in fact today there is a life size bronze statue that pays him tribute.
The Clubhouse is unique with ocean vistas, golf art, antique memorabilia and the warm ambiance of its members. The restaurant and pub feature fresh seafood, Irish Fare and the best pint in Kerry, all served by the glow of turf fires.
