DUNGARVAN GOLF CLUB NEWS

Being the frontline of the club, staff in the ProShop meet and greet both members and visitors alike as they set out to hopefully enjoy our course. So it is very rewarding when we receive positive comments about our facility. Compliments are currently flying in, particularly from visitors telling us how much they enjoyed the course and its condition.  So “kudos” to Scholar and his staff aided by our Tuesday volunteers for their efforts in presenting our course in top condition. An interesting insight from members is that they truly see how good our course is when they return from playing another course. Keep up the great work lads.

A rare bird was spotted in Dungarvan last week by Danny Raher while playing in the Senior Scratch Cup!  Danny scored a unique Albatross on the first hole hitting a drive and an eight iron into the hole for an amazing 2 on the par 5.  It is reported he also finished his round in style scoring an eagle 3 at the last.  Well done to Danny on some superb golf.

It was another hectic week at the club with 5 societies and numerous competitions. Players to stand out were Colm O’Hare, Barry Morrissey, Majella Moynihan, Alan Harty and Siobhan O’Meara. Next week will proved to be another hectic week with our Lady Captain’s Prize kindly presented by Christine O’Keeffe taking place over the weekend. There is golf for everyone as Christine is providing Singles for the Gents as well as looking after our juniors and the Ladies Into Golf. We wish our Lady Captain the very best of luck and hope that she has a most enjoyable weekend.

In other news congrats to Anthony Sheehan who won the ongoing 9 Hole Gents competition and we wish our JB Carr team well as they try to overhaul a 4-1 deficit on Thursday against West Waterford in the county final.
