Captains’ Welcome


Captain John Hannon


Lady Captain Eileen O'Malley

We would like to extend a very warm and sincere Donabate welcome to all members, friends, family and visitors. We are delighted and honoured to be your Club Captains in 2022. As Covid restrictions are now being lifted we are hoping that our club can return to full golfing activities, including socialising at the 19th hole and entertaining friends in our wonderful clubhouse. The last two years have shown us what is truly important, that is family and friends, and to appreciate what we have and treasure those close to us.

Founded in 1925 and located off the M1, Donabate Golf Club is one of the oldest Clubs in the country. Over the past 97 years, the club has evolved from a 9 hole to a 27 hole parkland course with recently developed state of the art practice and coaching facilities. Our course offers a challenging golf experience on beautiful manicured greens and fairways. We have a wide range of competitions for men, ladies and mixed. Juniors, up to the age of 20, are especially well catered for and encouraged to participate in Inter-Club matches and Opens. Our very enthusiastic volunteer members are always on hand, during school holidays, to advise and help with Junior groups.

Fintan Lacy is our resident PGA Professional and is available for lessons to everyone including Juniors, Get into Golf ladies and teams. Fintan and his back-up team, who operate from the Pro-Shop, are friendly, welcoming and always eager to help.

Our affiliated tennis club which opened in 2016 has 6 all-weather courts with floodlights and was recently awarded Tennis Ireland’s Silver Quality Award. The Club has already begun to make its mark in the DLTC (Dublin Lawn Tennis Leagues) and the Fingal League. New members are always welcome.

We trust that you will enjoy our golf course and clubhouse ambience and hospitality; we want you to have a memorable visit and one you will repeat. We have a wide variety of very competitive membership options. Hopefully, you will get the opportunity to join us and enjoy our wonderful facilities and the camaraderie of members. We have a wide range of competitions for men, ladies and mixed.

Happy golfing to all and Céad Míle Fáilte
Captain John Hannon and Lady Captain Eileen O’Malley
