Tuesday Treats coming soon.

Our very popular Tuesday 9 hole Open competition will resume shortly.  We had a great response from members and visitors last year.  Watch this space for further information.


Wednesday is Seniors Day.

 We had our biggest turnout of the season on Wednesday last as this new competition gains momentum. The Midweek Medley is a 9 hole seniors competition for ladies and gents.  The emphasis is on enjoyment and a bit of banter followed by a cup of tea/coffee and a chat.  Be there at 11 am. for the draw for playing partners and 11.30 start.  We advise anyone arriving late to please ring in before 11.15 and they will be included in the draw.  It would be nice if we had a few more ladies so we can have at least one female on each team.


Dungarvan Golf International

Running from Monday 27th May to Thurs. 30th May, this tournament which is run over the three local courses, continues to prove popular with players coming from USA, England and Ireland taking  part.  This year we are hoping to encourage more members from the three local clubs to take part.
