In Volume 1 of The Confidential Guide to Golf Courses, Tom Doak published that.
“This modest nine holes near the base of the Dingle peninsula features expansive fairways and a bit of water in play in low areas between the dunes, but these don’t offend visually since they don’t appear man-made. There is a large, wonderful area of dunes stretching further to the east where Bill Coore and I once planned 36 holes, but the permitting process bogged down in the client’s lack of will to fight European red tape. It’s amazing to think so, but if it the game of golf hadn’t begun on the linksland before European environmental regulation, it wouldn’t ever have been allowed, even though links golf is the epitome of sustainable recreational use.“
Castlegregory Golf Club received a score of 4 out of 10 from Tom Doak.
