Description

  • holes:18
  • par: 72 73
  • length: 6.160 m 4.780 m
  • architect:Christy O'Connor Jnr & Eddie Hackett

More commonly referred to as Dingle Golf Links, the golf course here can be found in County Kerry in the South West of  Ireland. It is located on the Dingle Peninsula near to the village of Ballyferriter where Gaelic is widely used as the language of choice by inhabitants. This also helps to explain the two names of the golf club as Ceann Sibeal is Gaelic for Sybil’s Point which is a nearby geographical feature of the peninsula. 

The club was originally created in 1924 but was in a different location to the present one. Due to unforeseen circumstances and things beyond their control the club was disbanded in the 1960s however it was formed once again in the 1970s on the present site and has remained there ever since. Laid out by the infamous  Eddie Hackett the course here is beautifully simplistic and traditional and it is a pleasure to play.

Measuring 6160 metres this course has a par of 72. Expect all of the traditional links features when playing here with the dramatic terrain making a perfect natural canvas for the course. Very few man-made features and hazards have presence here which makes the course so stunning. Nature and the surroundings really can be your greatest ally or your biggest foe so think carefully whilst playing this course so as not to fall foul.

Facilities at the club are good and include a warm and welcoming bar and restaurant which players can enjoy at their comfort. There is also a well-appointed professional golf shop stocking a variety of produce and modern locker rooms are also on site for players to use. 

Tee times for visitors to this course have wide availability throughout the course of the week and there should be a time to suit everyone. Weekend availability is somewhat restricted however it is still fair. Green fee rates here are reasonable when you consider the excellent quality and stunning location of the course and some discounts are also available at select times throughout the year. 

As the course is quite secluded, travel connections to and from the club are somewhat limited however road links are fair and getting to the majority of the South of Ireland is quite straightforward. In terms of accommodation options there are a number of establishments throughout the peninsula that should appeal to most tastes and budgets.

    I Love this cousre, It keeps me coming back! I have shot 114 here and I have shot 78 here from the Blue stakes and I have enjoyed every round in between. Steve the manager is excellent and the food and drink in the bar are a great place to relax dissect the great and the not so great shots. True Links!

    Unfortunately, we have believed the first review here. A suggestion for improvement on the Albrecht would be responsible. In addition to the name of the evaluator capture the HCP please! For all of us with HCP < 10 the place was weak and not worth the long way.After we had played gestures Adare Manor and were overwhelmed, Dingle is to the forgotten. Mountain downhill, mountain down, mountain high, and from the sea and at a links course common, seen nothing! In Ireland, you can find easily a few dozen better places!
