DOOKS GOLF LINKS

6a

Golf has been played in Dooks since 1889 which makes it one of the oldest Golf Links in Ireland. For the golfer who is seeking a beautiful and tranquil environment to enjoy great golf, Dooks presents just that. It is is a hidden Gem renowned for its friendliness, spectacular views and presentation standards all year round.

Dooks is not as exposed as some Irish courses and features an amazing variety of gorse, heather and wild flowers, the ‘gentle’ wind is never far away and the narrow sandy fairways and well contoured greens offer you a real taste of traditional links golf as its very best.

KILLARNEY GOLF & FISHING CLUB

The club boasts 2 Championship courses – the 7,250 yard Killeen course which is a 4 time Irish Open venue (1991,1992, 2010 & 2011), and Mahony’s Point which, although a little shorter, offers ample card wrecking opportunities with its strategic bunkering, water hazards & large subtle breaking greens. These magnificent courses are nestled amidst the serene splendour of the famous Lakes of Killarney in the shadow of Ireland’s highest mountain range, the majestic MacGillycuddy Reeks.

Carne Golf Links Distance Membership

I absolutely adore Carne Golf Links, an amazing course in a stunning location in Belmullet, Co Mayo. Pity it wasn’t closer to home but great links courses come with classic coastal settings and Carne has this in abundance. Carne Golf Links was also recently voted the 10th best course in Ireland as well so don’t just take it from me about this superb track, go up and try it for yourself too!
