Tuesday 19th Sept, Margaret Coakley Doneraile Seniors Society
We had a great day everyone enjoyed the day out, food beautiful and we got VIP treatment. Weather great, got a bit windy towards the end, otherwise perfect, course in good order. Thanks again.
Sunday 17th September, Joe Flavin, Beggars Golf Society
14 of us from the UK played Dungarvan Golf Club on Sunday last, after a miserable few days of rain but the course was in great condition. This is a challenging golf course with some great holes, the 2nd in particular is tough one. Some lovely scenic views as you wander around the course. As part of the Dungarvan Triangle it offers amazing value for money and is well worth a visit. The clubhouse is clean and tidy and the drinks and food are lovely and again good value for money. Thanks Dungarvan Golf Club, we will be back.
Saturday 16th Sept, Ber Canniffe, Bandon Golf Club Ladies.
All the ladies enjoyed the outing to Dungarvan last Saturday. They liked the golf course and they enjoyed the meal afterwards. I must say we got a great welcome from Tom and we did not get a drop of rain.
Friday 1st Sept, Mick Palmer, Penny Hill Golf Society
Just a quick note about our outing at your club on Friday the 1st of September. It was the start of our captain’s weekend, and the course was in fantastic condition considering the amount of rain we had in the previous two months, we had 60 golfers out and everyone to man thoroughly enjoyed the golf course and the facilities, all the team there were brilliant and really looked after us and made us feel so welcome, I would ask you to pass on our thanks to all of them and I would also like to thank you for all your help in making our captains weekend a great one, we are already looking forward to our next visit .Thanks again.
Sat 1st July, Kevin McGuire, Abbey Tavern Golf Society
Everyone thought the course was one of the best we played in a long time. The condition of the place was exceptional. The bar and catering were also top notch. We will be back again for sure.
Fri 16th & Sat 17th June 2023, Liam Tynan Group
We wanted to thank you for helping arrange the tee times and the brilliant time we had at your course. The golf course was in brilliant condition and the service for all working there was great. We will definitely be looking to book another group event in Dungarvan at your course. Thanks again for everything.
6th May 2023, Gerard Smith, AIB Golf Society
We just want to say a big thank you to the Club for hosting our Outing on Saturday….It was a real success, all of the players (2 societies of AIB merged for the day!) were very complimentary of the course, especially the greens, they were in incredible shape…
Despite the recent unsettled weather the course itself was in great shape, and we managed to get around the course, enjoy the great views as always, but most of all, each others company upstairs after, where Tom Daly as always served up his usual high standard of food, as he has been doing for a while now for ye!
So please compliment your greenkeeping staff for us for the excellent job they have done…
The day went so well, and the fact we are looking to have the event next year again.
17th October 2022, Eileen O’Leary (Treasurer), Senior Womens Golf Society
We certainly enjoyed our day. Course was in terrific condition and dry underfoot which we were not expecting (after the deluge in Cork on Sunday). The hospitality of Lady Captain June and her helpers who directed our players to to the tee boxes was much appreciated by all – normally a lot of panic !
Restaurant facilities were excellent and buffet worked a treat – once we came in we were sitting with our dinner almost immediately. And the food was delicious. I have no doubt that we will be back in Dungarvan in the near future.
20th July 2022, Denis Kieran, Mashie Niblicks Society
What a great day we had in sunny Dungarvan Golf Club where a gentle breeze kept us from overheating and a lovely flat course framed by a backdrop of wooded mountains proved an interesting challenge for the 25 Mashies and their 3 guests last Wednesday. Full marks to Frank O’Flynn for his skills in persuasion and organisation for arranging the biggest away day this year, complete with fine weather and an hospitable club. The many accolades on the Whatsapp group speak loudly of the appreciation of the members for a job well done.
21st May 2022, Liz Moloney, Lady Captain Castlemartyr Golf Club
To say that we had a fantastic day was an understatement, it could not have gone any better! The weather was fabulous, the sun shone, the course was in top condition and the team in the Club House could not have done enough for us. Grace and Naz in the restaurant were outstanding, and Chris, the chef who did a great job. Sean O Sullivan in the Pro Shop was very helpful, I even bought a club from him! David, your Pro was also there and could not have been nicer. It really was a huge success and all our ladies loved the day out! Thanks very much one again and I wish you and all the team in Dungarvan a wonderful year and much success.
25th September 2021, Michael Mullane Bridge Bar Society
We attended on Saturday in glorious weather. We found the course in pristine condition, and everyone enjoyed themselves immensely. The Bridge Bar outing is an annual outing and I can assure you we will strongly consider returning in 2022. Many thanks for your assistance and courtesy. The crew were very impressed with Tom Daly’s cuisine and friendly manner.
18th September 2021, Eric Raethorne, Waterpark Golf Society – Captain.
Our society visited Dungarvan Golf Club last weekend. As usual the course was laid out in excellent condition with some tough hole to negotiate and is a credit to the Captain, his committee and ground keeping staff. The food in the restaurant was excellent with a full menu available before and after golf and the staff were amazing. Thanks as well to Karen and Jimmy in the office for their superb organisation and professionalism prior to arriving to the course. David Hayes (Club Pro) and Jake looked after us in the pro shop with advice around handicap indexes etc. before we played.
The weather last Saturday was superb, we had food and our prize presentation on the balcony overlooking the 18th green in splendid sunshine, all in all 10/10 I would highly recommend a visit for other societies and we will certainly be back next year.
Aug 6th 2021, Mark Horgan Ram Head Society

“Our society visited Dungarvan Golf Club last weekend and despite the public health protocols we were very warmly received in the Clubhouse and Restaurant. The course was in tip top shape, presents some very challenging holes against a wonderful scenic backdrop and is a credit to the Captain, his committee and ground keeping staff. The food in the restaurant was excellent before and after golf and the staff were amazing. Thanks as well to Karen in the office for her superb organisation and professionalism. We would highly recommend a visit for other societies”.
September 2020 Ambrose Guilfoyle, East Cork Golf Society
“Enjoyed our trip to Dungarvan , Course in superb condition, staff in Proshop most welcoming, food was excellent with a great choice on menu. Tom and staff superb, a great time had by all.”
August 2020 Vincent Hayes, Dungarvan Golf Triangle Visitor
“We played Dungarvan GC this summer and it was a fantastic experience. Our group consisted of low, medium and high handicappers and I can attest it is enjoyable experience for all abilities. The course was in fantastic shape even after heavy rain the night before. For me these are some of the most interesting green complexes I’ve played on this year.
However what really made for a great day was the level of service, from Karen in the office who arranged our passes for the weekend and was ever so friendly(and may I add posted back foc an item of clothing left behind by one foolish member of our group) to the pro in the shop who welcomed us with a smile, to the waitress who served us some fantastic food and pints of Guinness post round, every interaction was pleasant and welcoming. A rare experience where a visitor is treated as a member for a day. Looking forward to coming back next year!”
August 2020 John O’Neill, Organiser, Ram Head Golf Society
“We thank the Captain and committee of Dungarvan GC for facilitating the Ram Head GS annual outing last Friday 07 August.The course was in wonderful condition and the clubhouse staff were welcoming, as always.’“
October 2019 Mary Sheahan Senior Womens Golf Society Munster
“We heard nothing but compliments about the day both course and meal and the way we were looked after. I heard many ladies pass the comment they were dying to play it again under better conditions. I am sure future committees will consider playing your course again. I myself have it pencilled in my diary for next year.
Thanking you again for looking after us so well and allowing us on the course after such awful rain.“
September 2019 Helena O’Sullivan Ladies Treasurer, Kinsale Golf Club
“The ladies from Kinsale Golf Club really enjoyed our day at Dungarvan GC, the course was a delight to play and it is always a pleasure to play there. We certainly will be back to play again.
I would also like to commend your staff who were very helpful, especially the girls in the restaurant/bar, the food was absolutely delicious and I would recommend it as a place to stop for food.”

“On behalf of the New Ross Seniors Group I would like to say how much we appreciated the welcome we got yesterday in Dungarvan both from yourself, the staff in the pro-shop and Tom upstairs in the restaurant. It made our day.”
July 2019 Killian O’Mahony Captain of Irish Distillers Golf Society 2019 wrote:
“Months before we arrived at Dungarvan Golf Club to play one of our annual society outings we knew that were heading to the right place. The booking of dates and confirmation of numbers leading up to the outing was made so easy with the help of Karen in the office. The weather that caught most of the country with the years heaviest rainfall caused a cancellation but rescheduling was straight forward and they fitted us in on an already busy day for the club two weeks later and what a day it was. Sun was shining, everybody was smiling and the course was absolutely immaculate.
The fairways were an absolute pleasure to play from and the greens were consistant, clean and tough the whole way around. Every hole requires planning and offers a great challenge for any level of golfer. Between the food in the clubhouse, the prize giving we did on the balcony, in the shining sun, over looking the 18th and 9th green and the welcoming energy of the staff, a great day was had by all and we’re very much looking forward to returning next year. “
