The Management Committee have, over the past 2 years, been actively seeking financial support in the form of grant aid from the Department of Sports, Arts and Tourism (Lottery Funding) and Leader Funding (Department of Rural and Community Development) in order to provide a more enjoyable experience to both members and guests and to enable development of our Club.
In 2019 three major projects; funded by LEADER have been completed as follows

We are delighted to announce that funding has now been put in place for a major upgrade to our course.
A Sports Capital Grant from Department of Sports, Arts and Tourism, together with LEADER Funding (Department of Rural and Community Development) and additional support from Tomar Trust and club resources has meant that an ambitious Golf Course Upgrade costing €264,911 has become a reality.
