Dingle Golf Links

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 .
Favourite Hole
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 .
