Links land is a geological rarity. Less than one percent of all the courses in Ireland and the British Isles are championship links.
Waterville is one of these. It is no wonder that the world’s best players test their mettle here.
Waterville Golf Links placed
... and are extremely proud to
receive this recognition.

Dear Member and Friends of Waterville,
Golf Magazine (U.K.), the most prestigious of the European Union Golf Magazines, has published the rankings of the top 100 courses in Britain and Ireland for almost 40 years. Waterville first hit the 1988 list in the humble position of 49, and over the years, with patience and substantial investment, rose to our current position of 13th in Britain and Ireland.
This year, using their time tested formula and the worldwide experience of their raters, they have produced their first ranking of the “Top 100 Courses in the World.” Waterville is honoured to be part of this prestigious fraternity. View the full listing on our Rankings and Reviews page. I know you will enjoy their perspective, and a hearty BRAVO to Noel Cronin and his staff, Mike Murphy and his ground crew, and of course your fellow member, Tom Fazio and the staff of Fazio Design.
This is the year to plan your return to Waterville - the dollar is strong, airfares are cheap, the Guinness is smooth and Waterville Links is at its best.
Oh yes! The very respected Irish Farmers Almanac consultant to NASA is predicting a dry summer and Lough Currane produced two trophy fish since my last report - 11 lb. 2 oz. Seatrout and 19lb Salmon.
