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.

Hole 1

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.

“If Woods is indeed planning to put TaylorMade clubs in his bag, he wouldn’t be the first of the Nike guys. Rory McIlroy and Brooks Koepka both have put the M2 driver in their golf bags.” GolfWeek.com

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.”

The underwater clubhouse includes a well-equipped golf shop, restaurant and bar to cater to the discerning golfer. Troon Golf, the worldwide leader in upscale golf course management, acts as our consultant and advisor on the golf course, which will be built on floating platforms designed to minimize the impact on the surrounding ecosystem.

Within the development romantic homes and townhouses have been designed in venetian style, secluded in a village where everyone can enjoy a stroll through silky streets with some boutiques, an ice cream parlor, little restaurants and bars. Around the golf course some ultra-luxury palatial style villa’s will be built to create a stunning environment. This will definitely be the place where every golfer in the world will want to leave his or her footprint.

“Recently, we have acquired a private Lake of 185 Acres (75 hectares) in Miami, which we will develop with Floating Private Islands. This will be a showcase model to US cities and local governments on how Floating technology can change their approach in the fight against the rising sea level. For many centuries, the Dutch have been fighting the rising seas.Therefore we have changed our mind-set from ‘ Fighting AGAINST the water’  into “Living WITH the water”.

GolfBirdie Canada | The Golden Golf Club, great edition to the GolfBirdie App

“The golf course is challenging, but fair… It is very player friendly… No hidden tricks or gimmicks here.”

Voted BC’s #1 Hidden Gem in 2012 & 2014, Gold Medallist Kootenay Rockies Region, and #23 Top Track in BC. Click here for more details.

Golden Club

The Golden Golf Club is an appealing combination of beautifully maintained fairways and untouched wilderness. West of Banff and Lake Louise, Golden is situated in the Columbia Valley between the famous Rocky and the Purcell mountain ranges. Several holes are routed along the bank of the Columbia River, and from many parts of the course a person can view the lush slopes of the Kicking Horse resort.

“As a club, we take great pride in the fact that there are no residences on, or around the golf course; instead, each hole is almost entirely lined by natural forest. The course has no boundary markers or out of bounds. If you can find your ball, it is in play.”

Be sure to bring your camera. It is very common to sight wildlife such as eagles, osprey, coyotes, deer, and black bears during a round of golf.

The playability and natural beauty of our course provide the ideal setting for a memorable experience. For the best of BC, golf at the Golden Golf Club–the perfect spot to get away from it all.

This beautiful and serene location is 2,592 feet above sea level.

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).

How to improve golf game at home? | The quickest way to lower your score

Lower your score by 3 shots per round! Improve your golf game in minutes! Let us show you how to improve golf game at home or in the office.

Technology has been a part of the game of golf for quite some time now. Well always really, since the first clubs were made they were considered high tech in their day! So inherently there has been a lot of forward thinking and innovation in the game.

How to improve golf game at home!

Everything from swing aids to golf ball finders. All of which try to improve the average golfers game, and do.

However one of the biggest problems for golfers is not knowing their way around the course or not being familiar with it….especially when traveling to play.

Course management is one of the most neglected aspects of a golfer’s game.

Most players concentrate on hitting the ball well, but forget that the purpose of the game of golf is to ultimately attain the lowest possible score, not to show off perfect shots on every single stroke.

In other words, depending on the course and the hole you are about to play, it is sometimes safer (and wiser) to play for a bogey than trying to go for a one in a million shot. This ability to always play the right shot at the right time is what makes a successful golfer.

At last, there is a solution to this problem, which could dramatically reduce your score. How to improve golf game at home? …..with the GolfBirdie App.

GolfBirdie gives you a birds eye drone video of every hole, guiding you around the course. Allowing you to improve your positioning, course management and helping you avoid hazards.

For top level golfers 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 GolfBirdie, 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.
