Pro Am Qualifier

Gareth Reid leads the way in our Ballycastle ProAm qualifier after an impressive 44 points last week at the Hilton Templepatrick. 

In equal second place are Oliver Doherty and Jules Preston who both scored 41 points. 

Caolan Smith is not far behind on 38.  The top 3 players will qualify to team up with one of the DCGS PGA Professionals to take part in the PGA event to be held in the new year. 


US Masters 2018


Our students have been offered a fabulous opportunity to attend The Masters in April 2018. A once in a lifetime experience, a trip to the holy grail of golf is on every golfer’s bucket list!

Open to students and parents, there are 2 different options to attend either the Tuesday practice round or the Sunday final round, plus 3 rounds of golf, bed & breakfast accommodation at the 4* Downtown Hyatt Hotel, premium car hire, and Virgin flights from London. 

A staff member will also attend - don't think it will be difficult to find a volunteer!

UGA Kirkistown Castle ProAm

UGA Kirkistown Castle ProAM

Congratulations to DCGS Full Time Student Paul Conroy for winning the best gross score in the amateur section of yesterday's UGA Pro Am at Kirkistown Castle GC.

On a bright and breezy but bitterly cold morning Paul played a solid round but will still feel he left a few out there as he returned a score of 6 over par to win by one over the field.

Also in the team were fellow students Conall Murdock (T18th nett) and James Fallon (T9th nett), all three students having qualified to take part in the Pro Am during a 36 hole event held over the last two weeks at the school.

The team was lead by PGA Professional and DCGS Operations Manager Andy Peoples who finished T2nd individual with the team finishing 6th overall 6 shots behind the winners.

Fitness Testing

Fitness Testing Results

Last week the students completed all of their fitness testing for term two with a fantastic pass rate of 75% across the class. The testing incorporates all aspects of fitness with the pass mark for this term set at 140. In order to pass the test a pass mark of 140 plus needs to be achieved as well as passing six or more of the components of the test. Throughout the remainder of the term the students will be taking part in at least two fitness sessions per week to encourage a steady progress onto the next term.
