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.

Hole 2

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.

Tiger Woods holes incredible shot

Slam Dunk!! Hopefully Tiger Woods can pull of a few of these today!

Tiger Woods holes incredible shot from the fairway in typical tiger woods style!

BBC Sport

“Tiger Woods shot an inconsistent four-over-par final round of 76 to finish 15th on his return to competitive golf at the Hero World Challenge.

The 14-time major champion hit five birdies, including three in a row to close the front nine, but also made three bogeys and three double bogeys.

Japan’s Hideki Matsuyama won the 18-player event in the Bahamas by two strokes, finishing on 18 under.

Woods, 40, was playing his first PGA Tour event after 466 days injured.

The world number 898, who had two back operations during his absence, finished on four under overall.”

Augusta National Golf Club

Here is what Rory Mcilroy had to say about Augusta National Golf Club

“Where should I begin with Augusta? Every hole seems to have a personality of its own, and the atmosphere on tournament days adds a dimension unlike any other event. It’s Beauty and the Beast stuff. I said before that I could play the par-5 13th all day. I think I still feel that way. There’s danger left and trouble if you’re too straight. But if you can move the ball right to left, there’s a great chance of making the green in two. And what a green! Unless you’re in close with your approach, two putts is a good result.”

British Open Infographic | 5 amazing facts you didn’t know!

Info Golf

The Open Championship has been held at Troon on eight occasions. Six of the eight times it has been won by an American. Including Arnold Palmer in 1962 and Tom Watson in 1982. Get those bets on!

Harry Vardon (above), famously known as the inventor of the Vardon or overlapping grip — the most commonly used in golf today — holds the record for most British Open wins with six (1896, 1898, 1899, 1903, 1911, 1914).

The oldest winner of the British Open is “Old” Tom Morris (left), who was 46 when he won in 1867. The youngest was his son, “Young” Tom Morris (right), who was 17 when he won the following year.

Gary Player won the British open in 1959, ’68, and ’74 (above) — making him the only golfer in the 20th century to win the Open in three different decades.

Royal Troon is home to the shortest hole in Open Championship golf. Regarded as one of the top holes in the world, the par-3 8th hole (“Postage Stamp”) measures a scant 123 yards (112 m), but its diminutive green measures a mere 420 square feet (39 m2).
