From the Rocky Mountains to the World's Top Golf Destinations
Founded in 1889, its the 5 oldest clubs in Ireland. On the Atlantic ocean in ‘The Kingdom’, Dooks has it all. Golf was first played on this particular stretch of true sea-side links by soldiers from The Curragh, where golf was introduced to Ireland in 1883. Martin Hawtree was asked to "have a look" in 2002 which resulted in a complete overhaul and re-opened in 2006. Its' reputation for excellent golf in a magical setting with a renowned friendly atmosphere is the envy of golf clubs not only in Kerry, but worldwide.
**My first 18 holes with my son Oisin (8), was in Dooks, July 2013. During the heatwave, the course, great weather and local hospitality made this for a great day which I hold near and dear to my heart. Despite not seeing rain for several weeks & some burnt grass, this is a real test of golf. Fabalous layout and greens make this a must play when down in the South West!**
