Dooks Golf Club

Glenbeigh, Ireland

You’d be forgiven for thinking that Dook’s name is actually Hidden Gem Dooks

There is, in my opinion, a formula for an ideal golfing experience. First, I want a course worth playing. It needs to be challenging enough to hold attention, but not brutal; especially if I’m lacking local knowledge, I don’t want a slog. I also want a special location; some place with something spectacular about the setting. I want to be left in awe. It should be relatively affordable and somewhat off the beaten path; I want to feel like I’ve been let in on a wonderful, undiscovered secret. Finally, it needs to feel removed from the everyday world – to exist outside of time and in harmony with it’s surroundings. Brora is a wonderful example of such a course in Scotland, and in Ireland, this describes Dooks to a “T”. There are so few perfect places like this.
