LOTTO RESULTS

This week we have major works taking place on the course out of the Lotto Funds raised last year. As you know these projects have been planned for some time and we are delighted to see them progressing. The following works will take place:

  1. The drainage project will progress over the next two to three weeks.
  2. The filling in of the “hole” in front of the men’s third tee will be completed this week.
  3. The filling in of a number of problematic bunkers will progress with the earth from the drainage project.  

Some unavoidable disruption will be encountered while these improvements are carried out – however it will be to all our advantage once the work is completed. We are very grateful to those of you who purchased annual and weekly tickets which allow us to spend the funds on course improvements.

The numbers drawn in the weekly Lotto on 7th July were 1, 8, 10 and 19. There was no winner of the Jackpot which increases to €4,700 next week! We had one Match 3 winner this week – Hilary Browne – congratulations to Hilary.

The draw next week will take place on Sunday afternoon about 4:30pm. Come along and support us – all are welcome.
