2020/2021 Golf Season Tees off for Donegal ETB Golf Society

A new season for the Donegal ETB Golf Society is about to commence. Established in 1993, originally with 73 members, Donegal ETB Golf Society has now reached its 28th year. Captain for the 2020/2021 season is Jim McGlynn and Vice-Captain is Kathleen Gallagher.

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, who haven’t a handicap, will 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 membership payment of €30 to join the Society and the usual Green Fees 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, please contact Society Secretary, Jim McGlynn (jimmcglynn@donegaletb.ie or 086 227 1435) to join.
