OUTDOOR DINING

We gladly welcomed the return of outdoor dining on Monday 7th. Being able to dine again on the balcony and outside the clubhouse in the sunshine with friends is another step closer to being back to some normality. Thank you to Tom and his team for all their hard work.

LOTTO RESULTS

We had a draw of Lotto 3 on Friday 4th June. This was the first draw since we came out of lockdown and the third draw in all. The numbers drawn were 2 – 7 – 15 – 27

The jackpot was €8,900 and there was no winner. The jackpot increases to €9,000 for the next draw. There were four Match 3 winning tickets at €5 for each ticket. The four ticket holder’s were:-
1. Sean Norris
2. Tom Conway
3. Charles Daly
4. Pat Cunningham

Thanks for all your support. We are selling €2 and €5 and €90 annual tickets. 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.
