Dooks Glenbeigh, County Kerry, Ireland

Golf has been played at Dooks Golf Club since 1889, making it one of Irelands oldest links. The golf links is set out on one of three stretches of sand dunes at the head of Dingle Bay. In the immediate foreground are the sand dune peninsulas of Inch and Rossbeigh and just a few miles away are the whitewashed houses of picturesque Cromane fishing village. The McGillycuddy Reeks (Highest mountains in Ireland) are to the southeast and to the north are Slieve Mish and Dingle mountains. All combine to create a beautiful and tranquil environment in which to enjoy golf. The layout is very natural in that greens lay where they fell. Peter Dobereiner described Dooks very well when he said, " it was a dreamlike experience, playing over the rolling hills and guessing often wrongly, which hollow would harbour a green". The course has recently been extended and several holes redesigned under the expert guidance of Martin Hawtree which has enhanced Dooks greatly.
