Resumption of Golf

Covid-19 has changed our lives at a time in the year when most people enjoy leisurely pastimes, including golf. We, as members of Dungarvan Golf Club, are privileged to engage in Phase 1 of our Government’s roadmap, which allows golf club members to play the game they enjoy.

The sun shone beautifully on the luscious fairways of the golf club as the first ball was struck at 8.30am on Monday, 18th May. Strict compliance with GUI/ILGU guidelines are being observed and it is great to see full timesheets each day. A significant amount of preparatory work had to be put in place in order to ensure adherence to the guidelines. Great credit is due to our Captain, David, Lady Captain, Mary and the volunteers each day who ensured the smooth running of golf each day. Work was carried out on the course during the closure to ensure the course was in pristine condition on return. The efforts by our course staff are much appreciated.

With continuous good practice and adherence to the guidelines, it is hoped that we will proceed to Phase 2 of the road map on the 8th June, when members may enjoy a more competitive edge to the game and invite guests. In the meantime, enjoy your golf and STAY SAFE
