This year’s winter league is now entering its 7th week.  Well done to everyone for getting out there and putting in a big effort for their team.  With the festive season upon us, club competition prizes are currently turkeys crowns and hams.  See above for list of prize winners to date.

The League runs until the 10th February 2023 so there is plenty opportunity to get in the required rounds. The format this year is 9 teams of 12 players with 10 rounds to be played. 6 teams out of the 9 will go through to the play offs. We ask that all players write the name of their team on the cards to make it easy for the kiosk staff to add your score to the spreadsheet. A huge thank you again to our sponsor John White. It promises to be a very competitive winter league, scores can be viewed weekly on the club website news section.  Best of luck to the 9 Captains and their teams.



We are reaping the rewards now for the drainage work and fairway work carried out last year on the course. It’s a great comfort to know we can play 18 holes of golf all year round, well done to all involved. Winter rules are in play, so it is marking and placing within 6 inches no nearer the hole on both fairways and rough. Bunkers are also GUR for the duration of Winter League. Please check with kiosk staff for further updates. Members are reminded of the importance of shouting fore if your ball goes astray on the golf course, so for everyone’s safety please continue to shout fore if your ball goes in the wrong direction than you intended it to. Hopefully this spell of artic conditions will pass soon.



To keep our greens in excellent condition we wish to make golfers mindful to please repair all pitch marks.  At this time of year, even small pitch shots into the green can damage the surface.  To bring extra focus on repairing these marks, greens have been assigned to each of the Gents Winter League teams as follows:

1st and 10th Green: Abbeyside

2nd and 11th Green: An Rinn

3rd and 12th Green: Ballinacourty

6th and 15th Green: Dungarvan

7th and 16th Green: Dunhill

Lady Captain Rosie and Lady President Eilo would like to extend season’s greetings to all our members and friends. Looking forward to a wonderful Christmas and a peaceful and happy New Year!!



Due to severe frost during the week, our league has come to a standstill but hopefully the weather will improve and we will take to the fairways again next week. Entries are excellent with players taking advantage of the good days and getting their rounds played before the New Year. Well done to all who have put in a tremendous effort to date!



We had a great turnout last Thursday for our Christmas gathering despite not being able to play due to frost and the closure of the course.  Anne left no stone unturned with prizes for everybody and delicious finger food served by the staff. Our grateful thanks to Anne for her organisational skills and to the staff for a wonderful Christmas afternoon. Our next outing will be in the New Year, date to be advised and will be posted in our whatsApp group. This is an ideal opportunity to play the 10 Hole Winter League in conjunction with the competition of the day. Registration is 12pm on the day with Anne or Mary. Please support, as these midweek events are fantastic to keep you swinging and enjoying the game!!



Our Christmas scramble kindly sponsored by Shaw’s Department Store over 10 holes was played on Sunday 4th Dec. We ran this in conjunction with the Lion’s Club Hamper Appeal with a very generous donation from the ladies which included the entries and raffle sales.

Our day started with delicious mulled wine and an array of festive goodies supplied by L.Captain and committee members which sustained us for the golf!! Presentation of prizes took place immediately afterwards, with a prize for everyone in the audience!!

The festive dinner took place at the Moorings with a varied selection to choose from which proved to be very popular. Thanks to the staff for a wonderful meal which was enjoyed by all and to our committee members who organised the entire day!!

This year again, we are so grateful to Shaw’s in Dungarvan for their very generous sponsorship and the beautiful array of Christmas products to choose from, and to the Moorings who have been a fantastic sponsor of our winter league for many years.  Thank you to all our sponsors who help us year after year, we could not do it without you!!



As with previous years, our club is again appealing to its members to remember those less fortunate for the forthcoming festive season. Raffle tickets for the beautiful hampers, turkey, ham and other prizes donated by members will be on sale until 18 Dec, please support.



Ladies, if you had ever thought of taking up golf, now is the time to do it, our Lady Captain Rosie and any committee member would be delighted to take out potential members and showcase our beautiful course and unrivalled scenery!! There are great deals on offer for new members and beginners including tuition, please contact our Director of Golf Irene or Brian in the kiosk on 058 44055 for more information.
