Waterford

County Waterford is located in the sunny south east of Ireland with over a hundred miles of coastline bordering the Irish Sea. The city of Waterford is not the county seat (Dungarvan holds that position) but it is the oldest city in Ireland, founded by Vikings in the 10th century, and it’s famous the world over for the production of Waterford Crystal glass.

The county does not brim over with golf clubs – of the 90 Munster clubs affiliated to the GUI, only 11 are from Waterford – but the clubs have done very well in major inter club competitions in recent years, with three clubs claiming provincial titles: Tramore winning the Barton Shield in 2011, Carrick-on-Suir claiming the Jimmy Bruen Shield in 2010 and West Waterford lifting the Senior Cup in 2009.

We list eight of the best courses in County Waterford, including – Tramore, Waterford Castle, Faithlegg, Dungarvan, Gold Coast and West Waterford.
