Course Description

Ceann Sibeal is more commonly known as Dingle Golf Links, it is nestled on the edge of the Dingle Peninsula, in the South West of Ireland. It is the most westerly course in Europe. The current club dates back to the 1970's and the course was designed by Eddie Hackett. It is a traditional links course that enjoys a simplistic design but this does not detract from the course, it is still pleasurable to play. It is a par 72 course measuring 6,737 yards from the blue tees, so quite a long course.

When you play here you get traditional links features, there is nothing fancy or showy about it, the striking landscape has created the ideal canvas for this course, so nothing more is needed. There are minimal man-made features and hazards here which makes the course special and sets it out from others. However, beware it these natural hazards and influences that will have the most impact on your game. Each hole is varied and interesting, being carved into the natural landscape. There is a stream that meanders through the course, and intrudes at inappropriate times. A major hazard is the winding burn that impinges all over the course. As you would expect the wind will greatly factor in your play, you can expect everything from a breeze to fierce winds, although the majority of holes have enough forgiveness to allow you to recover from a misplaced shot.

The course is well laid out, maintaining a natural feel. It is well kept, the greens are fantastic, fast and true, the rough is tough and unforgiving, the fairways are wide and flat, steep banks and strategic bunkering and gently undulating terrain are the features of this course. It is not a course that you can just go out and play, there are some holes where you will have to consider your play. It amounts to a very true but tough test of golf links whilst being enjoyable to play.

As you play the course the fabulous scenery is revealed, you will enjoy fabulous panoramic vistas of the Bay of Dingle to the East, stretching away to the Atlantic, with the Blasket Island lying on the horizon, hidden bays and small fishing villages as well as the surrounding craggy mountains and rolling hills. A nice aspect about this course is that it is easy to walk, meaning you can make the most of the wonderful scenery.

Our Favourite Hole

For us it is the signature hole the 10th, a par three 197 yards called "An Tiaracht". It is played uphill, out of the bounds on the left onto a blind green huddled in front of a large sand dune with the added protection of three pot bunkers to the right.
