I played Dooks (along with Tralee, Waterville and Ballybunnion) in mid April this year. It was a fantastic trip, but Dooks was such a pleasant surprise. I knew the other three would be something special, but I wasn't expecting Dooks to wow me like it did. I can hands down say that this is the most spectacular setting for a golf course I have ever played. Every bad shot hit paled into insignificance when simply looking out to sea or over the mountains. Amazing. The course itself was great- perhaps not in the world class of the others, but if I was to play just this course for the rest of my life I would be a happy man.
