Faithlegg Golf Club, Faithlegg, Co. Waterford
Opened in May 1993, Faithlegg golf course in Waterford was designed by renowned Irish golf courses architect Paddy Merrigan.
The superb parkland layout, with tricky doglegs, blind tee shots and strategically positioned sand traps, represents a stiff challenge for even the most accomplished golfers.
At a championship yardage of 6,674 and a regular yardage from the white markers of 6,284, distance is rarely the main problem in negotiating a good score at Faithlegg.
The perils of the course lie more in its clever layout and slick, often wickedly contoured greens. Any round of golf at Faithlegg will test the golfer's shot skills to the limit. Rolling straight and true year round, the greens at Faithlegg are finely manicured, often perilously fast in summer months. They represent the perfect distance to a potentially low return.
Varying pin placement puts the emphasis on accurate approach shots as inaccuracy is often aptly rewarded by long meandering putts to another level, perfectly exemplified by the par four 18th, a fitting end to a fantastic golfing experience
