While Dooks isn't of the same class as out links courses in the area it is none the less an enjoyable round of golf. The caddies were good and knowledgeable about the course. Younger than usual but members that knew the track. I recommend you give Dooks a try. You'll be pleased.

We retained a caddie who showed the ins and outs of this beautiful and rugged course. There were terrific views on each hole. The golfers all around us were very pleasant as well.

we were completely soaked (rain and wind) but more than happy to have played this links. Great scenery, challenging greens. Very nice people in the pro shop and at the bar. An unforgettable experience!

Husband and I played a round here and I wish we had played 2. Incredibly difficult greens (is there a single flat surface on those?;), great and well maintained fairways and beautiful views. We loved our early morning round on this true links course and compared to the silly greenfees charged by waterville, this place is a bargain and the... More

A truly great course: stunning views over the bay and the nearby hills and cliffs from almost every hole, challengingly small and unforgiving greens, lovely wild life with bunnies hopping over the fairways everywhere, great pace of play. And all this at a ridiculously low 55 EUR! We played Waterville two days before at 170 EUR and would rather play... More

Went to Dooks GC last week, lovely course in beautiful location. Friendly reception by staff. Have played many links courses & I consider this is a good one. Unfortunately, our round was spoiled by taking 5.25 hours thanks to a group of our American cousins in front. Their caddy advising on club selection, lining up putts, etc. didn't help with... More

Hi Jonathan, Thanks for taking the time to review Dooks so positively. It was a pity your round took so long as this is generally not the case here at Dooks. Hopefully when you return you will get to play it at a quicker pace. We are delighted you enjoyed the day at Dooks despite this. More

We really liked the true links layout of the course, and the members and staff were all very friendly. We golfed here twice in one week and had a wonderful time both days. The restaurant is also quite nice.

This course is tight and will punish any wayward tee shots. The 4th hole, a par 3, is particularly nerve racking, as the wid comes predominantly from the left ( the beach/sea ) and it takes courage to hit your tee shot over the out of bounds to the green. I must mention, the members and staff couldn't do enough... More
