OPEN CLUB CLASSIC

Our Open Club Golf Classic takes place this week from Thursday 23rd to Sunday 26th of September and we thank all our members and their visitors who are booked in to play over the four days. We look forward to welcoming visitors and visiting societies over the weekend. There are tee times still available – €100 per team of four with re-entry at €15 per person. We have some fantastic prizes including a draw for eight visitors for yearly membership. Please book your team in online www.dungarvangolfclub.com or call us on 058-43310.

Thank you to our main sponsors Ger Darcy and Billy Queally for their much-valued sponsorship and support of our annual fundraising event for the club. Thank you to all our sponsors and members for their generous sponsorship and donations.

BARTON SHIELD FUNDRAISER DRAW

Thank you to all our generous members who entered the Barton Shield Fundraiser draw. Your support ensured the team were well prepared to take part in the finals. We held the fundraiser draw for free membership last night and the winner was Kate Morrissey. Congratulations to Kate!

RULES OF GOLF EVENING

Our Vice Captain June James has kindly offered to do a session on the rules of golf on Tuesday evening Sept 28th. It will be in two separate sessions- one (refresher) at 6pm for those who have been playing golf for a few years and another at 7pm for our new Get into Golf Ladies. Both sessions will be practical, taking place out on the golf course. 

Because of COVID restrictions we were unable to hold a rules session like this for a few years. We would encourage you to attend and bring yourself up to speed on the rules. This is a great opportunity for you to learn the rules.

VOLUNTEERS – THANK YOU

As we move into Autumn now there is no requirement for volunteer work on Wednesdays from now on. We had a great core of members who volunteered to work on the course every Wednesday morning through the summer and much was achieved. Some of the work done includes edging of bunkers, cutting hedges, cutting back scrub around tee boxes, putting down hazard markers, repairing paths, cutting suckers on trees and much more. Thank you very much to everyone who was there to help, your contribution has made a significant positive impact on the presentation of our course. Dungarvan Golf Club is very lucky to have dedicated members who volunteer their time to the course and clubhouse.
