Golf Chumann Cheann Sibeal is nestled a stunning green valley between the majestic hill of Cruach Mharthain to the south and a ridge of jagged peaks to the north, Ceann Sibeal and the Three Sisters. To the east, Cuan Ard na Caithne caresses a two mile long stretch of white sandy beach called Beal Ban and Mount Brandon. To the west, the mighty Atlantic is faced off by high rocky cliffs, punctuated with tiny coves and beaches just right for smuggling.
At 6737 yards, 18 hole Par 72, is one of the traditional links. The Club was founded in 1924 (as Dingle Golf Club). The Club had two temporary homes on the outskirts of Dingle before developing a nine hole golf course at Ballyoughtra (Ceann Sibeal) in the early seventies. The original design was by Eddie Hackett. The back nine was developed in the eighties and the clubhouse in the nineties. Christy O Connor Junior did some re-designing in the nineties also.
Each hole is full of tricky undulations and swales and hazards laid down long before the game of golf was dreamt of, including a winding "burn" that twists and turns through the entire course. Signature hole is "Ifreann" (Hell)-Ninth-Hole-Par 4 -229 yards Stroke Index 1.
As much a part of the experience at Dingle as our golf course, our club house has a life all of its own. It resounds with the camaraderie of friends and locals, enjoying wonderful food and atmosphere in relaxed and casual surroundings. Upstairs you'll find our lively club bar and dinning room with wonderful views of the Links. Their menu is seasonal and created from fresh local ingredients supplied locally from both farm and sea.
At Chumann Cheann Sibeal, there is ample parking available, a full hire service for clubs, buggies and carts. Pro shop, fully stocked with leading brands & Cheann Sibeal Golf Club branded merchandise.
