So it ended up being "one of the worst days we have had in 5 years" by the end of the day, but fortunately we played the first 13 holes in only a mild storm, the 3 club wind and sideways rain did not start until the home stretch. That said, after a tour of the best of SW Ireland, Waterville comes in a strong second behind Lahinch for me. Strong holes throughout, eminently fair - just a great experience and course. Would not hesitate to make the drive again. Can only imagine what it would have been like if the weather was nice.
