History of Deer Park

In the year of 1973 in an idyllic setting at Howth Demense, Captain Christopher Gaisford St Lawerence created a nine-hole Deer Park Golf course to an excellent design by Fred Hawtree. History was made in Ireland, as the course was the first privately owned golf course, which would be open to the public. History was made again when a group of regular golfers who enjoyed playing the course met to discuss the possibility of forming a Golf Club at the Deer Park Course. The seed was sown and thus a long sequence of events.

The first meeting was held in June 1974 and the founder members present were: Jim McIntyre, Joe Doran, Joe Brennan, Cormac O’Sullivan, Louis Caffrey, Colm Harmon.
It was agreed to proceed with the formation of a Club subject to agreement with the course owner Captain Gaisford St Lawerence. This meeting was held in July 1974 and it was agreed to make enquires to the Golfing Union of Ireland about the formation of the Club an affiliation to the Golfing Union of Ireland. Mr Jim McIntyre was nominated as secretary of the provisional committee and would undertake to enquires. During the period July-August 1974 the provisional committee achieved the following
(1). Drafted a constitution, with the assistance of Pat Ruddy, golf j journalist with the Evening Herald and also received help from the Leinster branch of the G.U.I
(2). Passed the necessary resolution seeking membership of the Golfing Union of Ireland.
(3). Completed the application papers and submission to the Golfing Union of Ireland.
On the 9th of September 1974 Mr Jim McIntyre recieved a letter from Mr Ivan Dickson informing him that agreement in principle was reached on Deer Park’s application subject to our constitution being agreed by senior counsel.
