The Golf Courses
Dunmore East slips back and forth across fairly open, wind-rattling ground before descending to the signature cliff top holes. Here you’ll encounter a spectacular backdrop with the village and sea below, and shots that require real bravery.
Tramore is an easy-paced, rhythmic layout that roves through dense trees with lots of variety and shape to holes. Of all the courses it requires the most discipline as trees get a touch too close, but smart golf will reap great rewards.
Waterford Golf Club dates back to 1912, and there’s a classic parkland air about it. It is a short par 71 and its easy tree-lined rhythm is a pleasure to play. The back nine takes you slowly up the slopes to the highest point that is the 18th tee. Full Set of Photos Here
|The practice green at Waterford Castle
Waterford Castle Golf Club sits on an island, with a four star hotel, and you catch a private ferry to reach it. The course never strays far from the River Suir, and yet there are good changes in elevation to emphasise the pretty setting. The course is not difficult but with big greens you’ll need your putting boots on.
