Ivan Morris' Ireland's Best 9-Hole Golf Courses Book On Sale Here for €15

Hugely acclaimed golf writer, Ivan Morris in his recent publication “Ireland’s Best 9-Hole Golf Courses” rates Castlegregory as one of the top three 9-Hole Links Courses in the country.  “Castlegregory Golf Links comfortable fills the bill that Desmond Muirhead, the creator of some of some of the world’s most famous courses and a former associate in Jack Nicklaus Golf Design Empire, had in mind when he stated: “I look upon a golf hole as a theatre with the golfer as the actor.  The course is a number of theatres making one large coliseum.  So the golf course architect is creating a series of theatres, a string of haunted glades where magic lives and where drama is suddenly set free.”  From the get-go, there is no shortage of drama, ecstasy and angst at Castlegregory.  The way apportioned is up to yourself.”

 

Ivan comments, “The springy turf, ever-present wind, slanting, well-maintained greens and unique surrounding scenery make Castlegregory one of Ireland’s best, links tests.”  He further adds that “You could transfer Castlegregory’s wonderful 8th hole (365-metres), which is played back into the prevailing South-westerly to any course on The Open rota and nobody would complain (or notice.)” “The drive through Conor Pass and down into Dingle is one of the most enjoyable in County Kerry.  Just sixteen miles beyond Tralee, an absolute gem of a links at Castlegregory is without doubt amount the top-3, let alone top-10, 9-holes layouts in Ireland.”  In remarking about the magnificent setting and scenery he also refers to the CNSO – Castlegregory Natterjack Symphony Orchestra “performing an unnerving, late evening, throaty “Ribbit, ribbit, ribbit!” concert at the 9th (149-metres) – a medium length, par-3 over a small pond, to an exclusive target set at an angle in an amphitheatre of dunes.”

 

The elusive Natterjack has found a welcoming home in the ponds of the Castlegregory Course and thrives in a wonderful environment.

 

Ivan also extolls the welcome that awaits one by nominating that Club as having “The most engaging membership”.

 

Castlegregory is certainly not to be missed and very well worthwhile putting on any golfer’s itinerary.
