The Origin of Playing Cards

The origin of playing cards: 

Playing cards originated in China and dates back to around the year 1120.  

Originally cards were used for fortune telling and gambling. 
Cards were introduced into Italy and Spain around 1370, probably coming from Egypt. 
Tarot cards, used for fortune telling, were introduced in Italy in 1440.

DLGC Bridge Club

DLGC Bridge Club can trace its history back to the foundation of the Golf Club.  The first record is in 1910 when the Council discussed the need to purchase a Book of Rules on Bridge.

President Marion Fox welcomes you
President Marion Fox welcomes you

Dear bridge players,

I feel very privileged to be your president for this year (2019-2020). Bridge has been played in DLGC for over 100 years. In recent years, we won the Rose Bowl (an inter club competition) and we continue to promote the game of bridge. Currently there are bridge classes for improvers on Monday mornings and we look forward to welcoming these players to our Friday night competition. It takes many people to run a bridge club. I would like to thank my committee, Tournament Directors, Scorers, and past president Moya Murphy for all their support in ensuring the competitions run smoothly. I would also like to thank Ruth Sheil and Pam Cooper for organising the Massey Brothers League. Thanks to all participants and wishing you good luck in the games. 

♠   ♣ We are also planning an away trip to the Ardilaun Hotel (Galway) in February 2020. There will be more information about this trip shortly.
