Dungarvan lions club has 40 members who are involved in fund raising and practical services in the local area.

We here at the Goldcoast Golf Club are once again delighted to be involved in the fund raising as we have done for many years helping people that are less for fortunate than ourselves, so we are calling on all member to support this great cause. Commencing Monday 6th to Sunday 12th December the club competition proceeds between these dates will kindly be donated to the appeal by the management and club.  In conjunction with this the Club is also running a raffle with some beautiful prizes on offer. Tickets will be on sale in the kiosk and the Goldcoast Leisure Centre up until Sunday 19th December, so don’t miss out.   The list of prizes are as follows: 1st Hamper kindly donated by an anonymous member, 2nd Hamper sponsored by Tim O’ Driscoll, 3rd Turkey and 4th Ham sponsored by Premium Butchers and other prizes of bottles of wine, so if you’re not in you can’t win!



We offer our heartfelt condolences to Ned Connors on the sad passing of his brother Pat whose death occurred in Galway. And to Tom Reynolds on the sad passing of his brother Michael whose death occurred in Mayo May god have mercy on their gentle souls  r.i.p.



The John White Carpentry Winter League is now entering its 5th week of play with some great scoring in.  Remember 8 rounds to count for your team with the top 8 teams going through to the semifinals in February 2022.  For the festive season, the next few weeks club competition prizes will be Turkeys and Hams.

Golf Ireland guidelines have stated that all 3 handicaps must be recorded on cards for competition and casual rounds for handicap purposes. To avoid disqualification you must record your h/cap index, playing h/cap and most importantly the course h/cap, all of these are available on the Golf Ireland app and also on screen when you log in for competitions. It is also important not to enter a zero for stableford competitions as it interferes with standard scratch, if you blank a hole just record the shots as the computer will adjust accordingly. All scores must be recorded by the marker and signed in agreement with the player before being returned no later than 30mins after you finish your round.



Ladies, if you had ever thought of taking up golf, now is the time to do it, our Lady Captain Isobel and any committee member would be delighted to take out potential members and showcase our beautiful course and unrivalled scenery!!
