Waterville Golf Links ranks as one of the finest links golf courses in the world, never mind Ireland. Located on the Ring of Kerry, the surrounding scenery and quality of golf holes is breathtaking to say the least. In 1900 Waterville became one of the first clubs to be affiliated to the Golfing Union of Ireland. Since opening in 1973, Waterville has enjoyed great popularity and has hosted some of the world’s leading professionals from Faldo and Floyd to Stewart, O’Meara and Woods, all of whom have been captivated by the course. The late Henry Cotton, three times British Open Champion, probably said it best when he commented: “Waterville has to be one of the greatest golf courses ever built. If it were located in Britain, it would undoubtedly be a venue for the British Open. I have never seen a more consistent succession of really strong and beautiful golf holes than here.”
The Skellig Bay Golf Club, offers more of a parkland challenge than Waterville Golf Links, but with equally spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean. Nestling in the shadows of the towering McGillicuddy Reeks, the golfer has to negotiate the river Fionnglass for the opening and closing holes but it is the stretch from six to sixteen that lives in memory long after the last putt has been sunk.
Dooks Golf Club, owned by its members was founded in1889 and is one of the 5 oldest Links in Ireland, the charm, the atmosphere and the superb seaside setting of a truly traditional golf links makes Dooks a golf experience that has to be experienced at least once in a lifetime.
The Ring of Kerry Golf Club is located amidst stunning scenery, boasting spectacular views across Kenmare Bay and the Beara Mountains. The course itself (6820 yds. from the medal tees), has gone from strength to strength, providing a playable yet challenging experience for golfers of all levels.
“QC’s has the finest and freshest seafood, fantastic rooms and a great atmosphere...a must visit.”
John O’ Connor-Old Head of Kinsale
One recent satisfied customer of QC’s, well known golfing superstar and US Open winner Graeme McDowell, recognises Waterville as one of his all time favourite golf courses and QC’s as one of his favourite restaurants.
When Graeme McDowell and his Manager, Connor played Waterville Golf Links, they opted to dine at QC’s. Nearly two years later when Graeme was interviewed in the Times Sunday Magazine, he recalled his experience in one of his favourite golf courses, Waterville, and perhaps most importantly for us, he remembered the “wonderful seafood restaurant, QC’s in Caherciveen” that they visited.
The many years spent enjoying and following the wonderful game of golf have given Andrew Cooke of QC’s a rounded appreciation of the needs and demands of the modern golf tourist, from the basic understanding of golf management through to the requirement of dry shoes for the following day on the links.
