Found on the south west coast of Ireland, the Dooks golf course is situated in County Kerry and is around 120km away from the city of Cork. Closer towns include Glenbeigh, Killorglin and Killarney which is the home of the beautiful Killarney National Park. The course itself provides stunning views across Dingle Bay and fantastic panoramas that won’t be forgotten quickly.

The club was founded in 1889 and the original course was just 9 holes. Over the years it was expanded to 18 holes using the design and construction efforts of the members and players from the local area. This 18 hole course was opened in 1970 and demonstrated an incredible feat, particularly as the club was nearly lost forever in 1965 when the existing lease expired and the owner would have sold the land to a third party had it not been for the efforts of said members.

Sometime later in 2002 the powers that be at the course felt that some overdue changes were needed and they bought in the famed architect Martin Hawtree to proceed over the changes which in the end turned out to be somewhat dramatic. This new updated course was opened in 2006 and has helped to secure the courses position as a great links course.

Measuring 5380 meters with a par of 71, this 18-hole links course offers an engaging and exciting game of golf for most players.  Expect great undulating greens and a tricky but enjoyable course, what it lacks in length it makes up for in other areas, particularly the abundant wildlife found in and around the course. It is common to find Natterjack toads in areas characterised by sand dunes so you may well see some, although they tend to emerge at night. The wildlife and natural setting is one thing that adds to the magic of Dooks and this is shown by the fact that the club’s logo is a Natterjack toad.

Facilities at the course are good and the clubhouse is home to a restaurant and bar in addition to a well-stocked golf shop. Trolley and buggy hire is also available and there are caddies available through prior arrangement. The Dooks club is noted for its friendly and welcoming atmosphere and there is nowhere at the site where it is more apparent than in the clubhouse.

Tee times for visitors at the club are fixed and fall between 10.00- 13.00 and 14.30-17.00 so there is substantial availability. Requests for caddies should be made when booking so as to avoid disappointment. Green fees for the Dooks course vary with the season however there are usually numerous offers and discounts available to play here.

Because of its somewhat secluded setting, Dooks golf course can be a little trickier to get to however Kerry airport which offers mainly local flights is only a 40 minute drive away and from there connections to larger transport hubs in Ireland and the United Kingdom can be found. Local accommodation is plentiful and the course and club have well established links with many of them.
