Dooks Golf Club

Dooks Golf Club

      

Dooks Golf Club is set out on one of the three stretches of sand dunes at the head of Dingle Bay . At every turn you'll be treated to a stunning view, such as the sand-dune peninsulas of Rossbeigh and Inch or the whitewashed houses of Cromane fishing village.

South-eastwards are the famed MacGillycuddy's Reeks and across the bay to the north are the Slieve Mish and Dingle Mountains. And so for the golfer, who is seeking a beautiful and tranquil environment in which to enjoy good golf, Dooks presents a convincing case. There are trees, blind shots and some flat and clearly visible holes. Hole number 13 best illustrates the charm and magic of Dooks. It is a throwback hole to the time when golf began; Greens lay where they fell and were the better for it.

"Dooks is maybe the loveliest little golf club in the world. Certainly I have never been more totally surrounded by superb scenery than at Dooks." - David Davies, The Guardian
