Match 4 prize money currently is running at €8,500. You can purchase an annual ticket by preferably phoning the office or by calling to the office. You can also contact any of the Lotto Committee, or Management Committee or committee member of the Men’s or Ladies’ club for your ticket.

David assures me that this group is no exception. We are lucky in Dungarvan Golf Club to have David Hayes on site who is so encouraging and supportive of our Get into Golf programme.
