Ladies Golf Club Notes - 20th March 2017
St. Patrick’s Day saw the launch of the 2017 Golf Year at Castle Dargan by Captains Ray O Grady and Ann Mullen. The opening mixed scramble of the year was followed with impressive drives from both Captains and champagne toast to celebrate the distances. Refreshments, music and dancing continued in the Courtyard at Castle Dargan Hotel finishing off the day nicely. We wish Ray and Ann every success and enjoyment in their Captaincy for 2017.

Castle Dargan Mens Golf Club notes - 1st November 2016
The Aurivo sponsored winter league started the weekend last and a large number of entrants again this year. Players can play on either the Saturday or the Sunday and is v par. It was great to see a large turnout for the 9.30 shotgun start waiting to head out so if any player looking to pair up can meet at the golf shop on a Sunday morning. Results will be kept up to date after a few weeks in. It's not to late to enter just contact the golf shop. It was also notable the amount of work continuing on the Course with things going ahead of schedule and it was great to see the amount of sand everywhere on the course which will only improve the course even more. Well done to all involved on making great strides to improve the golf course.
The club would like to congratulate our Vice Captain Ray O'Grady and his wife Leona on the recent birth of their daughter Sadhbh. It will be great to see Ray Back on the course beady eyed in the coming weeks.
