Our experienced JB Carr Team led by Jimmy Wemyss overcame Waterford Golf Club on Friday evening in a tight battle. Following this success, our Jimmy Bruen team headed for Faithlegg on Saturday morning to face the hosts in a difficult game. But our boys, managed superbly by Donal Williams, played beautiful golf and recoded a 3-2 victory. Next up was Tramore and again our boys did the business recording another 3-2 victory.

In the area final on Sunday, we faced Waterford Castle and manager Donal kept faith in the team. But unfortunately, we didn’t play so well as in previous games and we succumbed. Our lads can be very proud of their efforts and we thank them for representing the club with pride and distinction.


We were delighted to welcome the Confederates Golf Society on Saturday. They enjoyed a great round of golf in glorious sunshine followed by a meal in our restaurant. This week we welcome the seven societies to our Club. It is going to be another busy week here at Dungarvan Golf Club!!
