I have been fortunate to have played Waterville a number of times and it is one of the most beautifully, elegant and relaxing rounds of links golf you will ever play. When you play through the dunes of the 11th hole – named ‘Tranquility’ – it is as peaceful a few moments as you could ever expect on a links course.

Peter Alliss received a Lifetime Achievement Award for Services to the Golf Industry, and Paul McGinley was awarded – not surprisingly – Golf Personality of the Year.
