Facility Information

Hogs Head Golf Club was “Built by Friends, for Friends, for Fun.”

Hogs Head Golf Club has breath-taking vistas including the Finglas River flowing through the course, majestic cliff holes overlooking Ballinskelligs Bay and the seaside charm of Waterville village. Hogs Head Golf Club is an experience unlike any other. It is our personal, sincere and genuine attention to every detail that makes the impossible come to life, creating unique and long-lasting relationships along the way. Designed by legendary golf architect Robert Trent Jones Jr, Hogs Head is a private member’s club situated just a mile from Waterville Golf Links on the Ring of Kerry. Named after a marine bearing point on the Ballinskelligs Bay, and completed in 2017, this spectacular layout was voted as the “Best New International Course” by Golf.com. Built on a majestic peninsula outside Waterville Village with stunning sea, mountain, river, and lake views, Hogs Head plays high above the ocean atop dramatic cliffs. It has many classic design features including a nod to Tillinghast’s theory on a gentle opening hole, and a Biarritz green (but interestingly found on a par 5). But the most notable inclusion is the 13th – a clifftop par 3, with not one but two infinity greens. Owned and operated by Alvarez & Marsal, Inc., HHGC is not only one of the top club experiences in Ireland, but with a focus on providing an elite, championship golf experience coupled with superior lodging accommodations and service, it is becoming one of the most sought-after clubs in the world.  www.hogsheadgolfclub.com
