GET INTO GOLF 2022
We are delighted to see so many ladies and men choosing Dungarvan Golf Club to follow the Get into Golf programme. There is no doubt that David Hayes our PGA professional instils a great enthusiasm among you which was really palpable in the clubhouse later as you enjoyed the coffee and chat. There are two more lessons and then we look forward to working with you as we take you out on the course.

JIMMY BRUEN WIN

Congratulations to our Jimmy Bruen team and panel who won their second-round match 3:2 versus a strong Williamstown team on Sunday May 15th. The match was played in Dungarvan Golf Club in ideal conditions with the course in superb condition, the greens came in for special comments due to their firmness and speed.

The match proved to be a very tense and exciting affair with Williamstown seemingly in control for most of the proceedings. Our front pair of Paddy Murphy and Des Cleary duly delivered the first point on the 15th hole. At that stage the rest of the matches were all on the backfoot.

However, our last-minute reserves James Hayes and Maurice Terry got the ball rolling with a superb fightback coming from 3 down to win on the 16th green.

With our middle 2 pairings Mattie Mullaney and Peter Firth, Barry Morrisey and Joe Kiely having suffered defeat, despite putting in a great effort, the pressure was on our last team out Eoin Brackett and AJ Hayes to deliver the goods. Lying 1 down on the 16th tee the boys delivered a rousing finish Par, Birdie, Par to win the match ensuring a 3:2 victory for the home side.

This was superb performance from our panel as we were missing a number of players from the first match versus Waterford Castle. Our next match the 3rd Round will be played versus the winners of West Waterford and the Gold Coast with dates and location to be confirmed.

CHALLENGE CUP TEAM

Congratulations to the Challenge Cup team who had a 3/2 win over Faithlegg last week, managed by Carmel O’Brien and Teresa Hayes. Well done to Ann Stack, Colette Power, Kolette Enright, Nollaig McCarthy and Hannah Buckley and also to the caddies who played such a big part in the win.
