New Season Gets Underway for Donegal ETB Golf Society

A new season for Donegal ETB’s Golf Society is about to commence. Established in 1993, originally with 73 members, Donegal ETB Golf Society has now reached its 27th year. Captain for the 2019/2020 season is Deirdre O Toole and Vice-Captain is Jim McGlynn.

The Society offers its members the opportunity to play a superb array of courses and affords them the chance to meet new people, relax in friendly company and enjoy all the craic and banter it has to offer.

On joining the Society members will simply be allocated a society handicap to get them started. Many Society members were not members of a Golf Club before they joined so the Society is an excellent introduction to the game. The Society caters for all categories of golfer – the old pro, the young pretender and both high and low handicappers! A maximum payment of €30 to join the Society also makes it much more affordable than upwards of €600 fee required to join a Golf Club.

New members are always welcome – if you are a staff, Board, Committee or Board of Management member, contact Society Secretary Jim McGlynn ( or 086 2271435) to join.

The schedule of outings for the year ahead are:

  1. 31 August 2019 – Dunfanaghy Golf Club
  2. 28 September 2019 – Ballybofey & Stranorlar Golf Club
  3. 09 November 2019 – Greencastle Golf Club

In addition to the many prizes presented at each event, all participants are invited to take part in the Donegal ETB Golfer of the Year, the Mary Anne Kane Magnificent 7 Memorial Trophy and the Corn Sheáin Uí Longáin Comórtas Foirne Team Competition.
