Golf courses near to Killarney Plaza Hotel & Spa
Dooks Golf Course
As natural a links course as you will find in Ireland but one that does not always get the attention of some of its neighbors. Dooks Golf Club truly is a ‘hidden gem’, and well worth visiting.
Despite being surrounded by mountains, the course is actually laid out on relatively flat land. At 7,252 yards, this course is certainly one that will challenge even the big hitters.
Its stunning landscape and fresh sea air are part of the Ballybunion experience. Understandably, the general population travels to play the famous Old Course but do not overlook the Cashen course as this hidden gem is well worth a visit.
