I played Dooks (along with Tralee, Waterville and Ballybunnion) in mid April this year. It was a fantastic trip, but sadly Waterville is the only course of the three that I have no urge to make the effort to visit again. Yes, it's a good course. Yes it's a tough course and yes it has the finest finishing stretch (16-18) that I've ever played. But somehow it all seems a little underwhelming. In my opinion go if you're taken, but don't work too hard to get there - it's a long way from anywhere and isn't cheap.
