Description

A charming Eddie Hackett designed parkland course situated in the Waterford countryside only 4km from the thriving town of Dungarvan and the coast.
The 148 acre (59 hectare) 18 hole course extending to 6,802 yards off the championship tees was created in 1991 from farmland owned by the Spratt family who still own and manage the course. Streams were diverted to create water features and extensive plantings have matured to increase the challenge this course presents. The spacious, yet
comfortable clubhouse has the ladies, gents changing rooms, showers, offices and the pro-shop at ground level with the main restaurant, kitchen, bar and balconies offering fine views on the first floor. West Waterford Golf Club has a strong member base and is home to professional golfers Seamus Power and Gary Hurley. Seamus holds a PGA card for the 2019 season and was on the Irish Golf team that competed in the Rio Olympics. Gary is touring professional and was on the winning Walker Cup team in 2015.
Due to its location, the quality of the course and the clubhouse layout we believe there is considerable scope to increase the membership and turnover.
A deliberate policy has been in place over the years whereby only standard fertilizers have been used except for the green where specific grass treatments have been kept to a minimum. With the planting of
mixed woodland and the creation of small water hazards the area has become a haven for wildlife.

THE COURSE
Starting with gently undulating farmland in 1991 renowned course designer Eddie Hackett has created
a friendly yet challenging 18 hole course with tree lined fairways, water hazards and well positioned bunkering.
The natural topography permitted the creation of difficult yet fair greens without excessive landscaping.
The golf guidebook Hooked An Amateurs Guide to golf courses of Ireland” placed West Waterford at no. 8 in
the country’s top hidden gems. There is a central irrigation system to all greens fed from a large tank under the works shed with all piping at a depth of 3 to 4 feet. All of the bunkers were upgraded in 2018.

THE BUSINESS
West Waterford Golf Club is for sale as a going concern. However, it can also be sold simply as a

the bar and pro shop stock, at cost.
