Waterville Golf Links Hole by Hole Course Guide

“Waterville golf links has to be one of the greatest golf courses ever built,” said three-time British Open Champion Henry Cotton. “If it were located in Britain, it would undoubtedly be a venue for the British Open.

LESS THAN1% OF ALL THE GOLF COURSES IN THE WORLD ARE ‘TRUE LINKS’.

85% of these geological rarities are located in Britain and Ireland. Waterville Golf Links is No. 1 in Ireland, while Royal County Down is No. 1 in neighboring northern Ireland.

Over forty of the world’s greatest champions from Sam Snead onwards have challenged the Links over the years. Prior to the 1998 Open, O’Meara, Stewart and Woods were joined by Appleby, Duval and Jansen, all of whom became members of Waterville.

THE MODERN ERA

TODAY’S WATERVILLE EXPERIENCE

In 1987, Waterville was sold to a small group of Irish Americans. They loved the game of golf and set about carrying on the history and tradition of the Links. The new owners brought together the 18th Century, four star Waterville House with the Links to create one of the finest golf and fishing resorts in the world. The private Waterville House fishery, and in particular Butlers Pool next to the House, are famous for salmon and sea trout.

WATERVILLE’S NEW CHAPTER

Waterville Golf Links 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 world’s leading clubs including Winged Foot, Pine Valley and Augusta National.

Everything about Waterville is truly spectacular. 

The setting is one of the best I have seen for golf.

-Tom Fazio

WATERVILLE HOUSE

The Georgian Manor is a 18th century manor house that sits on a narrow isthmus facing the wild Atlantic with beautiful Lough Currane on its eastern perimeter. The Currane River bisects the 50 acre estate as it flows into Ballinskelligs Bay. The Manor was built by the Butler family in 1790 and the estate was called “Waterville”.

Aside from its comfort and charm, the four star residence has 12 bedrooms and a private Fazio designed practice facility. Guests enjoy preferential tee times and access to fishing the famous Butler’s Pool and private rivers and lakes. The ancient Weir of Butler’s Pool is listed in the book, Iveragh Peninsula Archaeology, and is part of Ireland’s Salmon Research program, supplying critical spawning migration data.

What if you could get significantly better without making any changes at all to your swing? Obviously, that is something that every golfer would be very interested in.

That ‘other way’ does exist, and it is commonly known as golf course management.

via GIPHY

Making smart decisions as you work your way around the course, whether it is picking the right club for a certain shot, or picking a safe target line to keep your ball out of harm’s way.

via GIPHY

Between two golfers of equal physical skills, the player with superior course management skills will almost always be the one to prevail.

How can GolfBirdie help with course management?

GolfBirdie is designed to be used before, during and after your round of golf.

  1. Before

The night before your round why not browse through the entire course. Simply head over to the app, search for the course you are playing and have access to a tee to green drone video of each hole. Helping you make a plan for your up coming round.

2. During

Ever stood on a tee box and not had a clue which way the hole goes, what’s around that big dog leg or over that hill? All you have to do is take out your phone watch HD video of the hole.

Halfway down the fairway and you are wondering if there is any water short of the green? In 3 clicks you can find out just that.

3. After

Ever returned home from an amazing golf holiday to discover the photos you took just don’t do the course justice?

Well now you have a HD promotional video of each course that you have played in your pocket. So you can show friends and family. Or discuss a birdie you had on a particularly hard hole, while enjoying a post round pint.

For top level Golfer and pros, the usual practice is to visit a course a few days before a competition and play a practice round. Speaking from my experience playing at a high level we used to play two even three balls on each hole because we didn’t know where the best position was until we played the hole. With Golf Birdie, you can use the HD Drone videos in a practice round to eliminate this and allow you to concentrate on your yardages and other info.

For the everyday amateur, everything that can help your score is a benefit, so GolfBirdie is going to save you valuable shot every round.

Tiger’s back after 466 days

“I’m ready to go,” Woods told USA Today’s Steve DiMeglio on the range at Albany Golf Club on Sunday.

“I have way more shots now, because I’ve played way more golf,” said Woods of his decision to push back his return from the Safeway Open in October to now. “I only had a handful of shots back then. And you just saw a session where I hit everything. And I had control of everything. I can hit all the shots now, on call.”
