Dooks Golf Club

Last Updated:

What we say

One of Ireland’s oldest courses celebrates its 125th anniversary in 2014. Magical location, stunning links and breathtaking views. And at a price that won’t break the bank. What more can you ask for?

Dooks Golf Club, situated in a panoramic setting in a corner of Dingle Bay, was founded in 1889 and is one of the ten oldest Golf Clubs in Ireland.
For many years Dooks was a 9 hole course whose original members were from the titled residents of Caragh Lake or active and retired members of the Army.
The 18 Holes were opened in 1970 by the President of the GUI, Mr Gerry Owens and over the next 30 years the reputation of Dooks as an honest test of traditional links golf spread worldwide.  The clubhouse, which was just a tin shack in the 1960's went through 5 different "makeovers" before the present magnificent building was opened in 2005.

     dooks is a great course with great views of the glorious co kerry scenery....revamped recently with i think 18 new greens and alot of new holes..much longer now but with the bigger greens is has not lost its fairness...if it wasn't for the fact that waterville,ballybunion and tralee are so close, this course is slightly overshadowed by its nieghbours....don't miss it if you visit kerry for a golf holiday.....good tough links course and when the wind blows you'd better watch out
