Golf has been played in Dooks since 1889 and so it is one of the oldest clubs in Ireland. It was introduced to the local aristocracy by officers from the Royal Horse Artillery attending compulsory training at the nearby Glenbeigh Artillery Range. The club is renowned for its friendliness and invites all its visitors to enjoy the unique atmosphere of the clubhouse. Even though it has been extensively remodelled, great care was taken to ensure it retained its old world charm and quirkiness. One can relax in the bar which was specially designed so that people at one end of the bar could speak to those at the other. Dooks golf links is not as exposed as some other Irish courses and features an amazing variety of gorse, heather and wild flowers. Surrounded by the blue waters of Dingle Bay, this links course offers golfers a chance to experience the largely undisturbed beauty of the Irish landscape, on one of the most renowned links course in Ireland.
