Waterville Golf Course
Over a hundred years old Waterville is constantly rated in the top 5 courses in Ireland and the top 20 links courses in the world. Situated on the Ring of Kerry just getting to Waterville is a wonderful experience as it’s the situated on the most south westerly peninsula of Ireland. Golf at Waterville was played as far back as the mid 1880’s and the original set-up was the result of foreigners who were laying the trans-Atlantic cable needing a little recreation set out nine holes. During the 1970’s Irish American John A.Mulcahy while using the surrounds to relax became the main driving force behind making this disintegrated nine hole course into the championship links it is today.

Waterville was already a calming place for the likes of Charlie Chaplin who owned a house in the village. However when the links became recognised and received plaudits from Sam Snead “the beautiful monster - one of the golfing wonders of the world” he enthused. Ray Floyd has said that “anyone who can play around Waterville and score can play anywhere in the world”.

In the recent past it was Payne Stewart who was taken in by the locals as one of their own. He would use Waterville as a part of his set for the Open, bring some friends with him to play golf and his five note harmonica set to play after golf in the local establishments. He has become part of Waterville.
