Situated overlooking the magistic Ballinskelligs Bay and set among natural magalithic stonework and indigenous bog deal, there can be few more visually stunning locations for a golf couse than Skellig Bay in Waterville. The course opened for play in Spring 2006 and has already been rated in Irelands “Top 50”.

Nestling in the shadows of the towering McGillicuddy Reeks, the golfer has to negotiate the river Fionnglass for the opening and closing holes but it is the stretch from six to sixteen that lives in memory long after the last putt has been sunk. Here the awesome beauty of the Bay hits you full in the face as you play through holes framed by over 8000 yards of ancient “famine” walls.

Original standing stones from pre-christian times and a fairy fort all add to an unforgettable round as you experience an unbelievable feeling of another time and place.

“Skellig Bay is full of challenging golf holes” says Sunday Independent Golf Correspondent Dermot Gilleece. “...and is built in the traditional design that advocates visibilty, fairness and enjoyment”. The club is open for membership - Single and Family – and welcomes visitors / green fee guests all through the week .

Beautiful links course on the Ring of Kerry; the place is well maintained, right on the coast; exposed to heavy wind the first 9 questionable, as not holding the ball on the 7 off the tee and you had into the sea so that also hit the ball on green landed; headwind was a par 4 to 6 Par; hardly bunkers and water hazards; spectacular hole 4, attached to the different stones as on a megalithic tomb that one must play around; negative: the place was full of puddles, but no discount.

A dream place with claim

Terrific golf day with perfect weather, great place and merciless wind.
The previous speakers, we can only agree. An absolute must to moderate price with Top Plegezustand. For us pure pleasure!!! A playful challenge all first class.

But to have next to the madness location and view a little fun of the game, one should with stronger wind reasonably well already able to make the balls. Our friends (HDC 28) did not have fun.
