LADY CAPTAINS PRIZE

The Lady Captains Prize, presented by Mary Power, was a huge success.  A large entry over the two days of great weather was enjoyable and memorable for all who took part.  The evening presentation on Sunday, had a Garden Party atmosphere with delicious food prepared by Tom and Chris, a big thank you to them both. A great night of Music was provided by Indigo Mood featuring our own Ria, and Sarah. Social distancing was priority and with the good weather and marquees, it was all possible.

Vice Captain Angela Murphy, spoke eloquently and sincerely about the club’s loss of one of our very popular,  former Lady Captains, Mary Flahavan. A minute silence was observed by everyone present. The untimely death of Mary, on Saturday, was a sad event for us all. Our sincere condolences to her family. Mary will alway be fondly remembered here in Dungarvan Golf Club.

We completed the final draw of Lotto 2 this week. Covid 19 caused a long delay in getting to this stage.

The new Lotto committee are busy organising the commencement of Lotto 3 and will be in contact shortly to inform you of how they intend to progress

The numbers drawn for our Lotto this week were 6, 21, 26 and 28. There was no winner of the Jackpot which increases to €8,500 when Lotto 3 commences. There were five winners of the Match 3s this week – Mary Slater, Kevin Stack, Joe Murphy, Paul Coffey and Frankie, Rian and Evan O’Hare who each win €25.  Congratulations to each of them.

The €90 tickets for Lotto 3 are on sale and we thank those who have already purchased a ticket – if you not purchased please do. As you are aware the profit from the Lotto is invested into developing and improving the course. Our members and their friends have been extremely generous to-date in their support of the Lotto and we have no doubt that this will continue.
