The Course - An Cursa

Our beautiful links course is set in breath-taking scenery on the Dingle Peninsula along the Wild Atlantic Way.

Originally designed by Eddie Hackett, the links has naturally undulating fairways coupled with a meandering stream in play on 13 of the 18 classic links holes.  We are told that our elevated fescue greens are the pride of Kerry!

Our course improvement programme over the last 3 years has seen us climb up the Top 100 rankings of courses in Ireland.  Come and enjoy playing Dingle Golf Links Ceann Sibéal - a true test of links golf. 

 

 

The Holes - na phoill

1. Poll na Cruaiche - Par 4

A thought-provoking first hole, requiring nerves of steel to navigate the 3 fairway bunkers in range off the tee, before picking the right club to cross the stream and land on the sloping green.

2. Poll an tSéaláin - Par 3

A testy par 3, protected to the front by deep bunkers, steep runoffs either side and thick marram rough to the back. Adjustment for the wind off the Atlantic coast can be critical for success.

3. Sibéal - Elizabeth - Par 4

Savour the stunning Atlantic views from the back tees, before driving off to carry the stream and reach the fairway.  It's uphill from there to the elevated green.

4. Poll an Phíobaire - Hole of the pipers - Par 4

A straight drive off the tee box will be rewarded by a generous landing area. The stream lurks in the long grass and a pot bunker protects the left hand side of the green, so accuracy on approach is key.

5. An Giolcach - Par 3

Turning towards Mount Brandon, you will see a different perspective on the landscape.  A well protected green will test the best of putters. 

6. Gorta Dubha - The Black FIeld - Par 5

A long Par 5 heading north.  No excuses here if you can cheat the breeze and stay on the fairway.  Out of bounds all along the right.  The sloping green is protected by bunkers. 

7. An Mionnán - Par 4

The first dogleg on the course.  Accuracy off the tee will set you up for a par - if you can stay on the green which slopes right to left into some nice bunkers!

8. Na Deifréaracha - The Sisters - Par 4

A long carry is needed off the teebox on this Par 4.  Allow for the deep furrow across the front of the green which will stop any short approach in its tracks. 

9. Ifreann - Hell - Par 4/5

As its name implies, this is a hellish hole!  Par 4 for men 5 for women and the stream is in play off the tee box.  Overcome that and you have an uphill trek to the sloping green, protected on all sides by bunkers or runoffs. 

10. An Tiaracht - Par 3

Par 3 to an elevated green.  A semi-circle of bunkers adorn the green.  Enjoy the view from there. 

11. Coillteán - Par 5

Dog leg left from the highest point of the course. Aim right of the bridge for a safe landing off the tee.  From there, a couple of irons will have you on the green.  

12. Túirnín - Par 3

Par 3 off an elevated tee box.  No less than 4 bunkers protect this green. The herringbone wall to the right, was built during the Great Famine

13. Casadh Cosaí - Par 5

Par 5 dogleg right. The choice off the tee is to cut the corner or play it safe and lay up before taking on the stream. Either way you'll have another chance to cross the stream which protects the green away uphill in the distance

14. Binn Bhreac - Par 4

Downhill from the tee box, the fairway undulations can play tricks with your ball.  If you're lucky, you will be propelled towards the green protected by a subtle mound.  Eddie Hackett at his best. 

15. An Eascú - Par 4

A long Par 4.  Be straight or find your approach shot nigh impossible to hold on the raised green. 

16. Comharsan Firtéar - The Ferriter neighbours - Par 4

A slight dogleg right, requires a straight tee shot to be in position to attack the diagonal green.  Treacherous in high summer. 

17. Buailtín - Par 4

From the back tees, the carry is long.  If you make it, you still need to navigate the stream and 4 greenside bunkers to find the green.  A high lofted ball will do the trick, if you have judged the wind correctly.  

18. An Clabhsúr - Par 5

And finally, an interesting Par 5 to finish.  A variety of shots are needed to negotiate the strategically placed fairway bunkers.  A turf wall 90 yards out,  forces a lofted approach to the green, which is protected by a single, pot bunker.
