Our annual Open Club Classic commenced on Monday 29th July and ran through to Sunday 4th August with  fantastic prizes for Best Overall, Ladies, Gents, Mixed and daily prizes. Also included, were prizes of yearly Membership for six visitors (3 Ladies/3 Gents).

LOTTO

JACKPOT REACHES €5100

Another great afternoon in our Golf Club on Sunday. There were some members coming in from participating in the Annual Club Fundraising Classic and others enjoying Tom Daly’s wonderful food. The classic has been a great success again this year and gives the club an excellent income boost.

The numbers drawn on 4th August were 1, 7, 14 and 24. There was no winner of the Jackpot which increases to €5,100 next week.  We had three Match 3 winners this week – Michael Drummy, Peg Hennebry and “Tom Considine’s crew” – they each win €35 – congratulations to each of them.

The drainage project funded by the Lotto is now complete and we hope that it will add to members enjoyment over the winter months. Again, thanks to all of you who support our lotto.   

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