About us

Waterford Golf Club was founded in 1912 and overlooks the historic city of Waterford, Irelands Oldest City, located in the Sunny South East of Ireland.

With its magnificent views, this 18 hole parkland course, Par 71, is a gem on the outskirts of Waterford City. The irregular city, with its towers and steeples spread before the eye along the valley, and in the west, Slievenamon and the Comeragh Mountains, make a background of enduring splendor.

The front 9 holes were designed by Mr. Willie Park, Scotland, who was twice Open Champion 1887 & 1889). 

The back 9 was designed by the great James Braid, Scotland, who was Five time Open Champion, 1901, 1905, 1906, 1908 & 1910

Both of these great golfers are also members of the World Golf Hall of Fame

History
Founded in 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 an 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.
