SOCIETIES

We had a busy golf club last week with the Senior Women’s Golf Society Munster booking out the course on Monday 7th and WITH over 120 Ladies playing on the day there was a fantastic atmosphere in the Golf Club before and after they played golf. We received great feedback on our Course and Club House facilities and we were delighted they chose Dungarvan Golf Club as their venue.

We also had the South Munster Senior Gents playing with us on Friday 11th so it was great to see the Club being a hive of activity. We are taking Society & Group bookings for 2020 and we have great rates available for Green fees and Catering. Please call Karen on 058-43310 or email office@dungarvangolfclub.com to secure your date for next year.

We had a great turnout for our Adult-Junior Foursomes last Sunday. Victors on the day were Irene Lynch playing with her son Cormac holding off the challenge from Sean O’Sullivan & Eoghan O’Brien. Massive thanks are due to our sponsor, Mr Pat Norris from RSM for providing the prizes. Indeed, Pat is a long-time contributor to our Junior Golf at Dungarvan and his generosity knows no bounds. A great day was had by all. Our next events take place during the Halloween Holidays.

On Wednesday 30th October, we host the Juvenile Cup kindly sponsored again by Mr. Alan Ryan from Deise College. Then, on the following Sunday 3rd November, our Captain David Shanley presents his Captains prize to the Juniors. Both these events are important fixtures in our Junior Section and will bring the curtain down on our season with all outstanding presentations taking place on that day.

Our Golfer of the Year awards, which is kindly sponsored by Mr Paul O’Riordan will be decided by these two events, so a large turnout is expected. Get your names on the timesheet!
