We wish to extend our sincere sympathy to member Phil Donnolly on the passing of her husband Frank. May he rest in peace.

It has been a fantastic weekend for Dungarvan Golf Club hosting the Waterford GAA Classic. We would like to thank all those involved for choosing Dungarvan Golf Club and from all the positive feedback we received we know everyone had a wonderful weekend of golf.

Congratulations to all the organisers for ensuring the Classic ran so smoothly and efficiently. We are delighted to announce that a local team of DGC members won Gerry Raher, Dermot Ahern, Derek Power and Benny Kiely.

Special thanks go to all our restaurant staff most notably Chris who served approximately 390 dinners over the weekend. Outstanding job with the food receiving great compliments. Our Course was very well received by both members and visitors and for that we would like to thank all our Course Staff and Volunteers.

On the domestic front our Ladies had a busy weekend of golf with mixed fortunes. Our Ladies Intermediate Team were beaten by Thurles after a well fought battle. Hard luck to all the team who represented the club so well.

Our Ladies Junior Cup team won in Cobh beating Youghal on Sunday afternoon to qualify for the quarter finals of the Junior Cup. Cathy Whelan had our first win on the 17th.Carmel O’Brien had a fantastic win on the 13th hole. Niamh had lost on 17 after battling back from 4 down. Then Mary Power was coolness personified to secure the win on the 18th hole. Bridget Ahearne was called in on 17th hole and in control of her match. Managers June James and Joanne Fitzgerald were thrilled with the team. Caddies John, Michael, Betty, Marie and Tish did a great job!! It’s our first time in a long time we are through to the quarter finals and it is in Dungarvan against East Cork. Well done girls!!!

Congratulations to Sean O’ Sullivan who won the Men’s Competition on Sunday. Sean is an up and coming Junior player who had the best score of 45 points.

We had a great day Sunday in the club with three visiting societies keeping us busy! The feedback on our Course and Clubhouse has been encouraging and we look forward to them visiting us once again next year.
