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

On a 6 course trip through Ireland. Nice course, good scenery, and good value for money. I would play again.

My best man and I returned to Dooks for the eight year in a row for our annual match with the twins. I have played all over Kerry and this place by far is the hidden gem that seems to come under the radar. The course is up there with the rest of them and the views from the second... More

We played Dooks on June 15. We also played Old Head, Ballybunion, Doonbeg (sorry, but I refuse to use the new name), and Lahinch. Dooks stands up with the rest of them. Not as well known as the others, but a great course, and a real nice course to start our trip on. As others have said, the first hole... More

Played a round there on June 30th and had a great experience. We had Sean Roche as our caddy and he did a great job with the course and the history of the area!!! My wife walked along with us and he made her feel very welcome and even had her hit a drive and a putt just to say... More

Had the pleasure of playing Dooks for the first time today in the company of 6 Canadians here on a golfing holiday. A very enjoyable experience for everyone. Everyone we met, reception staff, Michelle the director of golf, caddies, restaurant/bar staff and members made us very welcome. We found the course to be challenging and the views spectacular.

We had played Carne, Enniscrone, Dingle, Lahinch prior to our visit to Dooks. I had read that if the author had one course to play before he left Ireland, it would be Dooks. I heartily agree. It was a pleasure.

A group of eight guys on golf trip. We played Doonbeg, Lahinch, Ballybunion Old; Waterville; Dooks and Tralee. This course when you drive up to clubhouse doesn't look like much and you can't tell from car park that its on the water. After a pedestrian first hole you see the layout on the second tee. This is a very good... More

This golf course is a great find. I made a mistake when making our tee times and Michelle was very helpful in helping make some changes. The course has some spectacular views. I say that after playing some great golf courses both in Ireland, Scotland and home. The 6 of us agreed that when we go back to Ireland we... More
