Waterford Golf Course

Waterford Club Crest

Waterford is one of my favourite golf courses having first played it in the father and son many years ago. Waterford's father and son is restricted to son’s under 18-years of age, a great idea.

Waterford is an attractive parkland course designed by the legendry James Braid who was Open Champion on five occasions.

Waterford is particularly renowned for the quality of its greens and its friendly atmosphere. The front nine demand accuracy from the tee. The back nine are more forgiving and feature a great closing stretch with a classic finishing hole. Played from an elevated tee the 368, m index 4 is very tempting to open the shoulders. There is real trouble all the way down the left the second if you are still in play is to a receptive green. It is the venue of the Waterford Scratch Cup lifted by most of Ireland’s finest golfers since its inception.

Waterford has recently completed and extensive refurbishment and extension to their clubhouse and the visitor is assures of the warmest of welcomes at this fine course.

Waterford was voted the No. 100-ranked golf course in Ireland, by "Golf Digest Ireland" in 2009;

Voted the No. 87-ranked golf course in Ireland, by "Golf Digest Ireland" in 2008;

History of Waterford

Instituted 1912 affiliated 1912

The history of Waterford Golf Club is well-documented in the clubs souvenir brochure for the 25th Anniversary of the Waterford Crystal Scratch Cup. When the first club was formed at Tramore in 1894 it was called the Waterford and Tramore Golf Club, which would indicate that there was a b element from the Tramore club involved in the origins of the club.

The first meeting to form the Waterford club was held on the 8th of March, 1912, in the Imperial Hotel. In the chair was Mr. H. J. Forde the man credited with starting the club. The meeting was told that land was available at Mount Misery on a lease of £35 a year. A further meeting was held on the 29th March and the provisional committee reported that 47 acres had been leased. The meeting elected the following officers: President, Mr. A. E. Graves, Captain, H. Tooms, and the Hon. Secretary was A. E. Walker.

Cecil Barcroft, Secretary of the Royal Dublin, was invited to design the course. However, before his plans could be put into place, the committee decided to commission Willie Park, the two-times winner of the British Open in 1887 and 1879 to redesign the course. His design was opened in July, 1913, stretching over 3,000 yards.

In 1935 the committee decided to extend to eighteen-holes and this time they decided to get the services of the best golf architect available in the shape of James Braid, who had won the British Open five times. Braid had already built a reputation as a course architect and the fine course we now find at Waterford is a credit to the foresight of the committees.
