Just Treat Yourself at West Waterford GC

West Waterford Golf Club, Dungarvan, Ireland
The par 3 11th
Trying to find the words to describe a hidden gem... without using the term 'hidden gem' is not easy. It's the perfect description, but not a popular one. It's a cliche after all... as is 'jewel in the crown'.

But, when it does exactly what it says on the tin, why fight it! West Waterford Golf Club, outside Dungarvan, is a hidden gem of Irish golf. I recently did a top ten of such gems and West Waterford was on the list (here's the review) and now that Just Treats and West Waterford are offering two green fees for €29, valid any day of the week, you have the perfect opportunity to find out why.

I dropped by on the way back from Cork a week ago and snapped a few photographs. It is in one of the most peaceful, country settings you can imagine and it's every bit as good as I remember. There are some really good holes here and the hospitality is superb. Dungarvan is also a 'foodie' town so you'll find great places to stay and eat. Nearby golf courses include Gold Coast and Dungarvan.

  1. Hello,

    I was lucky enough to play here a few years back as part of our golf week away. I knew of West Waterford GC but never really heard much about it. I thought after 2 holes I might have a great day. I started birdie, birdie. That's as good as it got I'm afraid. A thoroughly enjoyable track and great atmosphere in the clubhouse. A real family feel to it. I'll be back.
