We are in the process of redesigning our tee signs on the Golf Course and have a few spaces left for sponsorship, they would be situated alongside the ladies tees so we would suggest suitability for female led businesses but not exclusively so.

Attached is an example of how your advert ...would appear, email admin@doncastergolfclub.co.uk for further details.

A great team effort from our Lady Captain Karen and lady members who have made a real difference to the garden to the entrance of the clubhouse. Well done and thank you 😁

As the new 2022 Club Captain I am pleased to offer you a warm welcome to Doncaster Golf Club, unfortunately we are still disrupted by Covid, the AGM has been moved back to 1st March and the Captains Drive In will be Sunday 6th March 2022.

On behalf of everyone at Doncaster Golf Club, I ...would like to offer a warm welcome to all those visiting our Club whether that be for social or golfing events. The clubhouse commands superb views over the course, especially from the wonderful balcony area, and has excellent facilities for entertaining, dining, or relaxing.
This beautiful heathland course is known for its year-round playability and is a great test for all levels of golfer. We continually strive to improve the quality of both the golf course and clubhouse facilities and the club has continued to invest heavily in our development program to provide an enjoyable golfing challenge and excellent facilities, with a great atmosphere to relax in afterwards.

If visiting, or attending as members, I am sure you will find a friendly and hospitable welcome and trust you will enjoy the facilities the Club has to offer.
To our members, I thank you for the support over two very difficult years, and I hope 2022 brings you a successful golfing year, along with our teams representing the Club in the Sheffield Union leagues, Yorkshire Union, regional and National competitions.
Sandra and I very much look forward to enjoying a variety of golfing and social events with you.

The charity I chose as Captain was DonMentia. It was a pleasure to meet with Eileen Harrington from Donmentia to present her with a cheque for £3130. This has been an extremely difficult time for charities and DonMentia were absolutely delighted to receive this extremely generous donation from the... Club. I would like to thank the members both from myself and on behalf of DonMentia for their generosity.

This is a local charity which aims to provide support for not only those suffering with dementia but also to support the carers of those with dementia. All funds raised for this charity go to support local people and it was this local aspect which was particularly important to me. The charity provides trips, outings and events, examples of which are a day out at the seaside or an evening at the Cast Theatre. These events improve the lives and experiences of those living with dementia. The Charity also helps to provide respite breaks, which help improve the physical and mental wellbeing of carers.
