DG IRELAND TOP150 – 2024
DINGLE GOLF LINKS
Editor, Kevin Markham
The Three Sisters watch over this links at the farthest end of the Dingle Peninsula. The hillside that falls away from these three cliff-top peaks is home to a low, subtle and very deceptive links.
It is Europe’s most westerly course, perched on the Atlantic Ocean, and it promises open, raw and dramatic views. Originally designed by Eddie Hackett, more recent upgrades by Ken Kearney have enhanced the playing experience but remember this: you’ll need your wits about you because this is a course that
demands your full attention.
The famous and feared burn that slips across eleven holes is deviously magnetic while the routing ensures the winds will target you from every angle. And target you they will, as emphasised by several par fours of similar length which play in
different directions over natural and often unpredictable terrain.
It is a startling, sweet links education. The club now has a new arrivals area, practice green and short game facility.
One of Dingle’s key strengths is its consistency
throughout 18 holes. However, the par three 10th
behind the club house is a peach.
What’s in the Bag?
Meticulous course management.
