" /> Opened in May 1993, Faithlegg golf course was designed by renowned Irish golf courses architect Paddy Merrigan, the course carries the familiar Merrigan stamp of difficult, undulating greens.  And water heightens the challenge, especially over the closing stretch. Boasting a superb setting on the banks of the River Suir, the course has been cleverly moulded into a wonderful landscape of mature trees, flowing parkland and some five lakes.

Situated on a 200 acre estate, just 9km (6 miles) from Waterford City in the heart of Ireland’s sunny South East. In designing a searching, parkland test on the banks of the River Suir, Merrigan used the combination of mature trees and flowing terrain to fine effect, with tricky doglegs, blind tee shots and strategically positioned sand traps. 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.

Any round of golf at Faithlegg will test the golfers shot making skills to the limit. Rolling straight and true year round, the greens at Faithlegg are finely manicured, often perilously fast in summer months. 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. It also has the wonderful backdrop of Faithlegg House and is a fitting end to a fantastic golfing experience.
