Waterrock is a pay and play course just outside Midleton in East Cork. Being so close to Fota, Cobh, East Cork, Castlemartyr & Cork Golf Club, it really has set itself apart from these courses in it's business model and also the consistent condition it keeps itself in. I have played here personally about 5/6 times and the greenskeeping staff are a constant and also the clubhouse staff are constant. This is a really good sign of a well run business.

The course itself may be a little on the short side with the front 9 playing 3-4 shots easier than the back 9 however I do think there is enough in there to trouble the finest of golfers. Indeed the day I played last was with a 7 handicap who found the course challenging in all aspects. The fairways and greens are always in great condition with the greens complexes being quite undulating, you really have to find the right portion of the green to give yourself any chance.

The big feature on this course is water as pointed out in the name, it comes into play on 5 of the back 9 holes.

Feature hole is the Par 3 12th which is 240 from the back sticks over a lake, with OB right of the green and trees to the left of the lake should you wish to bail out.

All in all this course is a hidden gem and will always get you in good spirits.
