Golf Course/
Dooks

Dooks Golf Club was founded in 1889 and is one of the oldest, most charming Links in Ireland. The charm, the atmosphere and the superb seaside setting of a truly traditional golf links makes Dooks a must-play for any fan of coastal golf. Originally a nine-hole course, the members themselves designed and built nine extra holes back in the late 1960s. More recently, Martin Hawtree has improved on that work, and the result is stunning.

The links is set out on one of the three stretches of sand dunes at the head of Dingle bay. In the immediate foreground are the sand dune peninsulas of Rossbeigh and Inch and just a few miles away the whitewashed houses of Cromane fishing village provide an eye catching distraction.

Also in view are the famed McGillycuddy's Reeks. To the southwest are the lovely valleys and hills of Glenbeigh, and across the bay to the north are the Slieve Mish and Dingle Mountains.

Dooks golf links provides a true experience with nature, which exists through the flora, birds, and other animals that inhabit its environment. The dune's beautiful wild flowers sprout into action in the spring and summer months, and skylarks are often seen and heard flying above the course. Perhaps the best animal sighting is the Natterjack Toad, a rare and preserved species that has become the emblem of Dooks Golf Club.
