Golfing in Waterville

golf-ball-cup

We are situated a mere 5 minutes from Waterville Golf Links which is over 100 years old and is rated among the top 5 courses in Ireland and the top 20 links courses in the world. Recent visitors to the course are Tiger Woods, and Mark O'Meara.

The newly completed Hogs Head Golf course is also a mere 5 minutes away from our B&B. Ron Kirby of the Old Head of Kinsale is the designer of this new course. Ron has worked with Robert Trent Jones, Gary Player, and later with Jack Nicklaus in Mount Juliet.

The opening holes are built on hilly terrain around the meandering Fionnglassa River, and the back nine works towards the cliff overlooking Ballinskelligs below.
