The Night at the Dogs in Galway Greyhound Stadium is fast approaching…..have you your ticket for what promises to be a great night. Certainly for one lucky ticket holder it will be, as the Buster Draw is a guaranteed €1000. The first race is at 7.50pm and gates open at 6.30pm,

Don’t forget to bring your ticket on the night as it is your admission ticket. This is a new and different but major club fundraiser so all members are asked to support the evening which promises to be a fun night. If you are unable to go why not buy a ticket to be included the draw ?

Sunday the 26th will be the Captains drive out. The format is a 9 hole fun team event with a shot gun start at 1pm. The sign up sheet for partners is on the notice board.

Saturday Club
A total of 37 members participated in the Saturday Club outing at Tuam Golf Club which was a great turnout. Well done to John Stephens on a score of 30 points for 12 holes. It was a magnificent score albeit being in perfect conditions for the time of year.
Result:  1, John Stephens 30;  2, Seamus O’Neill 29;  Gross, John Bodkin 24;  3, Stephen Woods 29. We resume again on Saturday and a reminder that the ‘bottles’ outing is on Saturday, December 16. Hopefully the weather will allow us to compete each Saturday.  As the club weekend competition also takes place, members are asked to enter both which cost just €10.

The LOTTO is now €14,200. Neilus Buckley, Tom Gohery and Edward Campbell were the lucky dip winners. Be in with a chance for as little as €2 a week.

Major works are being done on the course at the moment with the cutting down of some old conifers. The 4th green was suffering due to lack of sunlight and wind and so too was the 1st fairway. The more natural deciduous trees will now have a chance to grow to their full potential. During the coming months various holes will be closed due to ongoing works so please check the notice board for holes out of play. Finally, please repair pitch marks on the greens and maybe even remind some of your playing partners to do so.. We have had great greens for the past few months so every little effort by us the members will help in keeping them great.
