Who Runs The Club?

The club is run by a Secretary/Manager, Irene Lynch, on behalf of the Management Committee. Irene, whose work is supplemented by the efforts of many volunteer members, co-ordinates and supervises the work of the course staff, the bar staff and course marshall; she also liaises closely with the club professional and catering franchisee.

While the Management provides and maintains the course and clubhouse facilities, the ladies’ and gents’golf affairs are run by the Ladies’ Club and Men’s Club respectively. Each of these clubs has a Captain, Vice-captain and committee, while the Management Committee has a President, Chairman and committee. These committees, and the several sub-committees, work in close collaboration, all in the interests of the members.

The Ladies’ Club and Gents’ Club Annual General Meetings are held late in October, while the Management Committee AGM is early in November. For members interested in the detailed workings of the club, the Rules and Constitution are available at the office on request.

Members and friends were pleased when, in 2007, Golf Digest Ireland included Dungarvan G.C. in its ‘Top 100 Courses’ list. It was a fitting reward and affirmation for the club’s work in developing farmland into a fine 18-Hole Blue Flag Championship Course from the early 1990s onwards.

The Management Committee provide and maintain the course and clubhouse; to this end they regulate the affairs of all employees and franchisees, and work in close conjunction with both the Ladies’ and Men’s Clubs; these clubs organise and run golf affairs for their members.
