Welcome to Doneraile Golf Club Seamus.
Challenge Cup 2017
Doneraile Golf Club's ladies Challenge Cup team won the Munster Pennant in 2017 beating Muskerry Golf Club in the final at Cahir Park. This victory came about as a result of hard work and practice from the team under the guidance of Eileen O'Donovan and June O'Connor.
The win was a fabulous effort for a team of ladies that only took up the game in recent years and were a great representation of Doneraile Golf Club.
The journey to Challenge Cup glory began in early Summer with wins in Clonmel GC before heading to a semi final in Monkstown GC, which will live long in the memory of everyone present. This win over Ballykisteen GC in the semi final was hard fought and seemed to be slipping away before some outstanding golf turned the match in our favour and victory was incredibly sealed on the 19th hole. The final in Cahir Park was less traumatic but just as satisfactory as all players played well to take control of the match early and win 3.5 to 1.5 leading to joyous scenes of celebration.

Mixed Foursomes 2016
Doneraile win Mixed thriller to clinch first pennant (Irish Independent 10th October 2017)
Doneraile made history at Gold Coast when they beat Tramore 3-2 in a nail-biting final to clinch their first Munster pennant in the Spanish Tourist Board-sponsored Irish Mixed Foursomes.
Battling heavy rain, Tramore overcame Mahon and Doneraile had and impressive win over Dromoland Castle in the morning semi-finals.
It proved to be a far tighter affair in the final, with the match eventually settled at the second extra hole.
Tim O'Mahony and Anne Heffernan put an early point on the board for Doneraile with a 4 and 3 win, but the other four matches went the distance and beyond.
While Sean Barrett and Karena Hunter put Doneraile 2-0 up, Keith Ridgard and Maeve Enright clawed a point back for Tramore before the last two matches went to the 20th.
Tramore's John O'Brien and Ann Mitchell made it 2-2 when they beat Doneraile's Peter Duane and Anna Cotter on the second extra hole.
It all came down to final match between Eddie Roche and Eileen Coleman and Tramore's Martin Walsh and Amanda O'Connor, which ended with the North Cork club securing a first ever Irish Mixed Foursomes pennant, which was proudly accepted by team captain Sean Collins.
Doneraile now advance to the All Ireland semi-finals, hoping to follow in the footsteps of 2015 winner Dooks by claiming the coveted green pennant.
