Tee times must be booked in advance online or over the telephone. We must ensure that players’ names are recorded on timesheets and timesheets must be kept for a period of at least six weeks to assist with contact tracing should the need arise. 

VOLUNTEERS

We had a great turnout of members last Wednesday who volunteered to help with edging of bunkers around the course. Their help is greatly appreciated. We will be continuing with volunteer work to enhance our course each Wednesday morning at 10.00am. If you are free for a couple of hours please come along.

LOTTO IS BACK!

Our Lotto draws will recommence on Friday 4th June. We are delighted to get back in action and to give members an opportunity to win our current jackpot of €8,900.  We completed two draws in Lotto 3 before Covid stopped our progress.

We are still selling €90 tickets which can be purchased from our office – if you purchase now, we will ensure you get two extra draws to get the full benefit of the €90 ticket. We also have €2 and €5 tickets on sale. It would be great to have a Jackpot winner – so be sure to be in to get a chance to win!

Remember that all the funds raised are used to develop our course. Some great work has been completed over recent years and more Lotto funds will be spent in the coming year to enhance your enjoyment of our excellent course. Since we returned to golf there has been consistent praise for the quality of our course and the many improvements that have taken place from Lotto funds.
