Dungarvan Golf Club News

 

Our course remained busy during the week and the Monday Seniors remains as popular as ever. Again, there was a great turnout for Tuesday’s Ladies competition and despite the bitterly cold weather on Saturday we had a fine turnout again. The course is in great condition at the moment and we remind members to respect course etiquette and repair and replace pitchmarks and divots.

 

Ashes

After last week’s draw, we travelled to Lismore more in hope than expectation. And that proved to be the case as Lismore brought out the “big guns” and defeated us by 27 holes. As always, the hospitality provided by our hosts was first class and despite the defeat our lads thoroughly enjoyed their Lismore experience.

Lockers and Locker Rooms

Annual Fee for Hire of Lockers Due Now

An annual rental fee of €20 applies to all lockers from October 2018 following the motion passed at the AGM in 2017.  The only exceptions to the fee are those that originally purchased a lifetime agreement. This agreement was non-transferable, and the lockers remain the property of Dungarvan Golf Club, and members were expected to return their keys for re-allocation. Anyone who inherited a key passed on by a member cannot avail of the exemption from paying the annual fee.

A list of lockers exempt from the annual fee is displayed on the notice board. This list has been verified from records held at the club. All other lockers are liable for the fee. Several lockers in use in the Men’s locker room have not been registered with the office and notices have been placed on these lockers. You are asked to register your name at the office and pay the fee or remove your clubs. Please ensure that payment is received, or clubs removed, by the end of November. Your co-operation is greatly appreciated. Several lockers have become available for hire in the Men’s Locker room. If you wish to avail of this opportunity to rent a locker, please hand your name into the office.

Re-Decoration of Toilets

The toilets in both Men’s and Ladies Locker rooms and those upstairs will be painted during the week beginning 5th November. Toilets will be closed on different days during the week to allow for this work to take place unhindered. Notices will be displayed each day to state which are in use. We apologise for any inconvenience this will cause but hope that the results will be appreciated. This project is funded from Social funds.
