It was great to see so many members taking to the fairways last Monday in glorious sunshine, what a welcome back!! Everyone was delighted just to be out swinging a club and taking in the beautiful scenery around Dungarvan Bay, absolutely stunning!! Our Captain John was very busy on Monday taking some fabulous shots of the course which are posted on the Gold Coast WhatsApp group, a superb introduction for any potential new members. Well done John you showcased the course to its best!!! Rob and his team have been working tirelessly during the lockdown to keep the course in pristine condition for our return which was very evident on Monday, well done to all.

Lady Captain Anne and members which to convey their heartfelt condolences to Mary Fenton, her daughters Mary and Neasa and the extended Fenton family on the recent sad passing of Austin. Rest In Peace.

Top 10 finish for Gary Hurley
Well done to our own Gary Hurley who finished tied 10th at the Antognolla Alps Open recently. Gary finished on 5 under par for the three round event which was played in Perugia in Italy.

Golfers were glad to be back on the course again after 120 days of closure. This was indicated by how quickly the time sheet filled up each day. The course was in fantastic condition, quite different from how we left it with it’s winter coat in December. There is a great run on the ball.

A virtual Annual General Meeting of Dungarvan Golf Club will be held on Thursday 06th May, via zoom commencing at 7.30pm. The meeting format will be a webinar. A link will be forwarded to all Members who have registered for the meeting via email. Please register for attendance before Tuesday 4th by 5pm.

The Annual Mass for deceased members is normally celebrated in the Clubhouse. immediately prior to the AGM. However, under the circumstances, we will arrange to have Mass said for them instead.


Our sincerest condolences go to Joanne Fitzgerald on the passing of her father John. We extend our sympathies to Joanne, her mother Nano, sister Maura and brother Ger. Ar dheis De go raibh a anam.
