What we say
A newcomer to the west coast scene, it only opened in 2006 but has already shot into Ireland’s top 50 courses. You have to carefully negotiate the river Fionnglass on the opening and closing holes.
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 Ireland's “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.
