There was no winner of our lotto jackpot last week. Number drawn were 12, 14, 15 and 19. This weeks lotto is a massive 17,000 euro. It’s never too late folks to sign up for either 6 months (50 euro) or yearly (100 euro). Envelopes are available in clubhouse if anyone wants to pop out and do either one line of 4 numbers for two euro or three lines for 5 euro. Draw takes place every Thursday. Congratulations to Martin Bane, Michael Ward and Joe Boyle who were our lucky dip winners.
June 9/10th will see the commencement of the first major of the Season Mr. Michael Cullen’s President’s Prize. The drawsheet is now up within the Clubhouse.

The winner of the crystals this week was Margaret McHugh with a great score of 24 pts. In 2nd place for the second consecutive week was Phil Farrell. Well done ladies.
There will be no crystals next week as the lady’s gala day is on. I would encourage all the crystals who are not playing the 18 holes to play the nine hole competition. It’s a hole less than our usual Thursday competition and I know ye would enjoy it. Good luck everyone.
Monday 28th May we are starting our social 9 hole re entry competition. This will be held on Monday Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 5pm. Prizes for each evening.
Friday evenings will be our 9 hole scramble (any combination). Bring a guest.
The draw for the club match play is now up on notice board.
Next week 2nd/3rd June is an open weekend. This will be followed by our open week (4th – 8th June). This is sponsored by Connolly Audi Galway. Please support as much as possible.
Next Thursday 31st May is our ladies Gala Day. This is kindly sponsored by Feelys Total Health Pharmacy . Thank you to Noreen, John and all their staff. Timesheet online.
Congratulations to our ladies in the Mary McKenna team who were victorious over Oughterard last week. Good luck to our Junior Foursomes and Minor cup teams in their upcoming matches.
