Job Title/Grade: Catering Franchise Opportunity
Business Name: Clontarf Golf & Bowling Club
Location: Donnycarney House, Malahide Road, Dublin 3.
About the Business:
Clontarf Golf Club is one of the oldest established golf clubs to be found around Dublin. It was founded in 1912, on the lands of nearby Mount Temple. It is also significant that at the time of the founding of the Club, as many as 90 per cent of golf courses throughout Ireland were limited to nine holes.
The Club flourished for eight years at Mount Temple until 1920 when several problems arose over the leasing of the land. Finally in August 1921, a lease was secured from Dublin Corporation on the land attached to Donnycarney House and work started immediately on laying out a new golf course there, designed by Harry Colt, the famous golf-course architect of international repute.
At the time of its foundation the total membership numbered 280 of which 70 were Lady Associates and 20 were Five-Day Members. Clontarf Golf Club was to become the first Irish Club to have Five-Day Members and, at the time, no golf was played on Sundays.
The Clontarf Members, however, were confronted with the problem of whether they should content themselves with another nine-hole course with the move to its present site, which would leave them with considerable land to spare, or utilise the land to its full capacity by going for a larger layout. It was finally decided that they should opt for 12 holes, comprising outer and inner loops of six. With the loops being played in opposite directions, the result was an ingenious method of completing 18 holes.
Meanwhile, a crucial move towards achieving an 18-hole layout was the purchase, in January 1927, of the interest in McCullagh's Field (the present 16th and 17th holes) for a sum of £20. An option was also obtained on Corbett's land (quarry holes) at that time and all details were finalised with Dublin Corporation and those particular individuals in February 1927. So it was that at the Club's annual dinner later that month, Dr. Morrow informed the Members of the deal, emphasising that Clontarf would now be the only Club in the country to boast an 18-hole course within a city boundary.
