Waterville, County Kerry, South-West Ireland

The beautiful monster - one of the golfing wonders of the world

Set against majestic scenery on the famous Ring of Kerry, you will a hardly find as tough a test as Waterville. Unsheltered from the sweeping winds from the Atlantic, this is as real golf can get. A spectacular location and an outstanding test of golf.

It’s signature hole is the par three 17th , named “Mulcahy’s Peak” after course developer John A. Mulcahy, where you tee off some 250 feet above sea level with a carry of 200 feet over dunes to reach the green.

In 1999 on the eve of the now famous Ryder Cup in Brookline, Massachusetts, United States team member Payne Stewart accepted the Captaincy of Waterville for the upcoming Millenium Year – the last golf honour he would receive before his tragic death. Today, a life sized bronze statue pays tribute to his Captaincy and his special relationship with Waterville.
