Played a round here after playing 3 other courses. All have been very good. The scenery was wonderful. The course is a little more wide open than the other three we played so far, there is plenty of scenery to make up for it. Our caddie was very helpful and we were able to play the course in about 3.5... More

My son played six rounds during the golf camp. I was able to walk the course and watch. Absolutely a stunning course, beautifully manicured, challenging with the fescue. Weather changes throughout round with wind and mist/rain. The weather contributes to the adventure. Staff super nice and helpful. Great pro shop and friendly bar. My son said the experience was "awesome".

Waterville is a little out of the way, but most of the coastal courses in Ireland are that way. While we caught it on a cool, misty day in late June 16, we could not have had a better time. Our caddy was spot on and the links were amazing. We played all the best in Ireland, RCD, Portrush, Portmarnok,... More

If you are going DO NOT TRUST THE GPS!! Ours had us drive over a mountain pass. One of our guys got car sick, stay on the ring road. It is 20 miles longer but an hour less time. Stay off that mountain pass.

Played 5 great courses in Ireland last week, Waterville was one of them. Played on a very windy day and it was a battle at times. Fast greens, some punishing bunkers, areal challenge.

I visited WGL last week during their open week. Cost of round was € 60 which for this standard of Links is good value. The Course was in excellent condition but some of the greens were a bit below standard as a different type of rough grass seems to be getting a hold and it gives some of the greens... More

Was surprised how many fellow golfers we met on our trip did not have Waterville on their itinerary. It is a true gem and should be included on any golf trip to Ireland. There is a serenity here that you don't find at Ballybunion or Old Head, plus it is a magnificent test of golf with fabulous views. Felt to... More
