Sublime - pure Irish golf
I will never forget my round at Dooks. It was one of the top golfing experiences of my life. It will be a long time before I ever have as much fun on a golf course.
It all came down to the turf, which is the key to links golf. Links courses are firm, but in the midst of a very dry summer, Dooks was on a whole other level. The fairways and greens were of such a consistency that tee shots ran out seemingly forever, and some approaches needed to land upwards of thirty yards short of greens in order to end up in pleasing spots. It was the golf equivalent of Grandmaster-level chess, and to anyone who enjoys putting together the puzzle of a great golf hole or shot, it was heaven. The water and mountain views added to a magical day. I would go back to Ireland and play Dooks three times in order to really get to know the place.
