Dingle Golf Links
DG IRELAND TOP 150 GOLF COURSES – 2021

The Three Sisters watch over this links at that 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, designed by Eddie Hackett (the back nine) and Christy O’Connor Jr (the front). There is new upgrade work being conducted by Ken Kearney.
The views may be open, raw and beautiful, but this is a course that demands your full attention.
The rough is unforgiving and the burn which slips across eleven holes proves magnetic more often than not. 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 very differently in the wind. This is a crafty links which glides over natural, often unpredictable terrain.
It is a startling, sweet links education.
Favourite Hole: One of Dingle’s key strengths is its consistency throughout 18 holes. However, the par three 10th behind the clubhouse is a peach.
What’s in the Bag? Meticulous course management.
