This traditional links course gives enjoyment and challenge without resorting to undue length, and so for the golfer who is seeking a beautiful and tranquil environment to enjoy good golf, Dooks presents a convincing case. Hole #13 best illustrates the charm and magic of Dooks. It is a throw-back hole to the time when golf began. Greens lay where they fell, and were the better for it. Dating back to 1889, Dooks is set on stretches of sand dunes at the head of the Dingle Bay. Just a few miles away the whitewashed houses of Cromane Fishing Village provide an eye catching distraction, and eastwards are the famed McGillicuddys Reeks (mountains).
