The Turf Club

0

The Turf Club (and INHSC) is the Regulatory Body for horseracing in Ireland; the organisation that for over 200 years has been responsible for the integrity and the reputation of Irish racing both in Ireland and internationally.

Founded in 1790 The Turf Club incorporates the Irish National Hunt Steeplechase Committee (INHSC) and is thus responsible for both flat and national hunt racing in Ireland. Through the INHSC the Turf Club is also responsible for Point to Point racing. Since its foundation it has always been an All Ireland body.

Preparing a thoroughbred horse for success on the racetrack is a complex and time-consuming job that depends on an extensive team within which everyone has a vital part to play. There are many positions available to those wishing to progress their career working directly with thoroughbreds ranging from stable staff to jockeys, trainers and racing secretaries. Some of the key jobs are described in this section, starting with entry-level positions, and reference is also made to employment opportunities within the breeding and stud sectors.

Cill Dara Golf Club

Quality golf, affordable pricing and genuine hospitality is what Cill Dara Golf Club is all about. Be guaranteed this, in one golfing experience. A golfer’s visit to Kildare is not complete until playing Cill Dara. Located only 2 minutes drive from Kildare Town and 30 minutes from Newlands Cross, make a golfing trip to Cill Dara the top of your golfing agenda in 2012.

Cill Dara Golf Club is situated on the edge of the Curragh plains, perhaps the oldest and most extensive tract of semi-natural grassland in Europe. An area of international significance with a wealth of history and archaeological features and also the home of the thoroughbred racehorse. The Curragh plain was declared a national monument in 1996.

Thus, the golf course is uniquely located, with greens of superb texture and great character matched only by the delicate fabric of the fairways. A “LUSH SWARD IN SUMMER” A “WINDY TUNDRA IN WINTER”

The golf club was founded in 1921 and became affiliated to the GUI in the following year. In 1922 the club purchased an army hut for several hundred pounds as their new pavilion. By 1933 further renovations to the clubhouse had taken place and by the time the club celebrated its silver jubilee, Cill Dara had become very popular with leading amateur and professional golfers.

JB Carr, an honorary member, played many times and won the unique Golden Ball Competition. In 1986 a modern clubhouse was constructed. The project was completed on schedule, funded entirely by club members.
