Course Details

Course Name: Waterford Castle Holes: 18 Yardage: 6790 SSS:
18-hole Par 72 Championship standard course designed by a team headed by Des Smyth (Ryder Cup and European Tour player). With sand-based tees and greens and a full irrigation system to tees, greens and fairways, the course also features many mature plantations, a number of artificial lakes to add to the beautiful parkland setting, and superb bunkering, strategically placed to test the long hitter. At 6,790 yards off the back tees, the course will present a real challenge for the discerning golfer wishing to test his skill in magnificent location. For ladies the 5,500 yard course is equally demanding and rewarding.
For an appreciation and independent view of this course please see golfer reviews.

    Located on the outskirts of Waterford town and requiring a 1 minute ferry ride across the river to get to the track, Waterford Castle is a modern parkland course where substantial investment has been made. Water in play on many holes and lovely views of the river on many a turn. We visited in June 2006. Greens were good; fairways were good; tees were terrible. Recommended

    Beautiful course with a nice mixture of long and short holes.Fairways, greens and bunkers are immaculate.Well worth the trip on the ferry. Very reasonable green fees for a course of this standard. Clubhouse is the only let down for me.

    This is a lovely course, with beautiful greens, which, are a pleasure to putt on. The fairways are wide enough for even a high handicapper (19) like me. It was very wet, and windy on both of the days we played and this certainly made the course much tougher.
    Overall, having played Faithlegg, Waterford G.C., Dungarvan and West Waterford as well, this was definitely the nicest course, and had the best drainage too. I would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone looking for a game in the Waterford region.
    P.S. The facilities were limited but as there is a lot of development going on at the club at present, this situation is sure to change shortly.
