This well maintained nine-hole layout is only a few minutes drive from the airport, overlooking St Ouen's Bay, and is a great way to stretch your legs before tackling the three big guns on Jersey and Guernsey. My young son certainly enjoyed watching the steady stream of planes take off and come in to land.
The condition of this cliff-top, parkland course was exceptional for the time of year with the greens running particularly well.
There is a mix of really interesting holes and a few that are absolutely fine but do have a similar feel to them. The best holes (1, 2, 4 and 9) have a bit more movement in the land whilst the others are a bit flatter.
Each nine is 2,506 yards and has an overall par of 66.
The course is part of the Les Ormes Resort with lots of other activities on site.
If time is precious then Les Ormes isn’t a must play when on the islands but if you have a spare couple of hours I would definitely recommend a quick nine.
Waterville provides a fantastic mix of championship golf & more quirky duney fun.
Dingle Golf Links, sometimes referred to as Ceann Sibéal Golf Club, is one that is trending in the right direction.
