LADIES PLAY IN PINK
As we all know, Charity events have been badly hit with the pandemic, but happily we are in a position as a golf club to hold an event and give our proceeds on the day to the charity.

Dungarvan golf club over the years has been a great supporter of cancer research, and we are going to hold THE PLAY IN PINK DAYS Tuesday 6th, Friday 9th and Saturday 10th October, for National Breast Cancer Research Institute. As the title suggests it would be great if we made an effort to dress in something pink on the day(s) we play for the cause. The organization would like us to send in some photos of the event and are looking for funny ones too, so be creative!! Please support this very worthy cause.
