Where2Golf says: 

Faithlegg House Hotel & Golf Club: Located on the banks of the River Suir estuary in the grounds of a stately mansion (now hotel), Faithlegg boasts a wonderful parkland setting, with a course that has been moulded into a landscape of mature trees, rolling parkland and some five lakes. Some tricky dog-legging holes, a few blind drives, well-positioned sand traps and water in play on several holes, ensures this is a course that continually probes and challenges. 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.

Did you know?

In 1819 the Power family acquired Faithlegg House from the Bolton family, who had previously built Faithlegg House in 1783. The Powers were a wealthy merchant family from Waterford City and they adorned the estate with the stags head and cross, which was the Power family crest. It remains the emblem of Faithlegg to this day. The golf clubhouse is located within a tastefully remodelled coach house, adjacent to the 18th century Faithlegg House. A midweek Golf Pass arrangement is operated by Waterford Castle, Mount Juliet and Faithlegg, giving a discounted Green Fee for a round at each Club.

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
Drentse Golfclub De Gelpenberg: as the oldest golf course in the Dutch province of Drenthe, De Gelpenberg offers a partly-wooded and partly-open heathland layout, guaranteed to test all facets of your game. It is arguably the best of the country's more northerly layouts, together with Lauswolt (50 km away to the north-west).
Golfbaan Stippelberg: located 25 kilometres north-east of Eindhoven, this relatively new addition to championship golf in the Netherlands has fast become one of the country's "must play" courses.
