Dooks Golf Club – A Hidden Gem in Irish Golf
Dooks Golf Club is among the oldest clubs in Irish golf, set up originally as a 9 hole links in 1889 an additional 9 holes were opened in 1970. Further dramatic improvements were made by acclaimed golf course architect Martin Hawtree, with an enhanced golf course opening in 2006, there has been a growing buzz around Dooks Golf club ever since.
Michelle McGreevy Manager at Dooks Golf Club explains “Some of the best golf courses in the world have a ‘link hole’ to get you from one piece of exciting ground to another. At Dooks, it’s the 1st. As soon as you walk over the hill to the 2nd tee,the Wow Factor! will make you forget your troubles and concentrate on playing proper golf. By the time you get to the par 3, 4th hole beside the beach you had better be well into your A-game because the run of holes from there to the 9th will test your mettle. The 368-yards, 7th is arguably the best hole on the golf course requiring pin-point accuracy from the tee and a ‘stadium’ atmosphere around the green.”
Occupying a stunning location in a corner of Dingle Bay the course is an authentic test of true Irish golf links where a warm welcome is offered to all. A round at Dooks Golf Club should not be missed by anyone on a golfing break in Kerry. Contact us today to book Dooks Golf Club and your Irish Golf Itinerary

One of the best kept secrets in Irish Golf.
Brian Laffey, Chicago, Illinois, United States
During our Irish golf trip, we played Waterville, Dooks, Tralee, Ballybunion, Doonbeg and Lahinch over six days. After playing all the courses, we rated Dooks golf course as the one that we could play every day and not get tired of playing the course. The golf course is challenging but did not beat you up if you missed the fairway. The 10th hole was our favorite hole with the 18th a close second. The views from the 5th hole were some of the best views during our trip. The clubhouse at Dooks Golf Club serves an excellent seafood chowder. We liked the golf course so much that we decided to play another 9 holes after our lunch. If you are planning on playing golf in the SW of Ireland then plan on playing at Dooks Golf Club.

My son in law wanted to play some Irish golf while we were in Ireland, my daughter booked us in at Dooks Golf Club as it was near where we were staying. They could not have been more friendly, sorted out hire clubs and did us a great deal. Dooks Golf Club Even helped my brother out who had left his golf shoes at Liverpool airport. The golf course is very challenging especially with it being a links golf course and the day we played very windy. Would love to play it again if only to improve my score and not in the wind.
