Founded: 1889 (1970s present course)
Designer: Eddie Hackett, Martin Hawtree
Type: Links

With majestic views of the Wild Atlantic Ocean and the nearby Reeks mountain range, which is home to the highest mountain in Ireland, Dooks Golf Links offers a visual feast of scenery at the edge of Dingle Bay as well as a technical challenge for all golfers.

Golf has been played in Dooks since 1889 which makes the course one of the oldest Golf Links in Ireland. Originally named Dooks & Caragh GC, it was affiliated to the GUI in 1903.

For 100 years the links remained a steadfastly quirky, 9 holes monument to those early days as the members resisted all efforts at modernisation. It was extended to eighteen holes in the 1970s under the guidance of Eddie Hackett. The course was further enhanced in 2002 by Martin Hawtree.

For the golfer who is seeking a beautiful and tranquil environment to enjoy great Golf, Dooks presents a convincing case. Dooks is not as exposed as some Irish courses and features an amazing variety of gorse, heather and wild flowers, the “gentle” wind is never far away and the narrow genuine sandy fairways and well contoured greens offer you a real taste of traditional links golf at its very best.

What our customers have to say...

While Ireland has an abundant of beauty and sights to offer, we think that Seamus will be one of the most memorable. From greeting us at the airport, to the final day in Dublin, Seamus went out of his way to make our visit enjoyable. I could go on and on about the good times we had but will say we absolutely enjoyed ourselves.
