Enjoy Playing One of Ireland

If you are on a golfing break in Kerry you won't want to miss the opportunity to play Dooks - a truly magical location for a stunning golf course. Experience breathtaking views and a unique links challenge that golfers have enjoyed since 1889.


Golf has been played in Dooks since 1889. Officers introduced it to the local aristocracy from the Royal Horse Artillery attending compulsory training at the nearby Glenbeigh Artillery Range. The golf course is set out in one of 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. Southeastwards are the famed MacGillycuddy Reeks, to the Southwest are the lovely Cooms and hills of Glenbeigh and across the bay to the North are the Slieve Mish and Dingle mountains. In recent years Dooks has carried out major improvements under the watchful eye of renowned golf architect Mr. Martin Hawtree. The new Dooks has kept all the old charm but is now a challenge for golfers of all abilities. This is superb seaside golf at its very best. "We have polished the exquisite gem which is Dooks Golf Links" (Martin Hawtree, Golf Course Architect)
