The draw for the mixed matchplay takes place 10th June so gents, don’t be shy ask a gal and get your names on the list (on the door just inside the bar). Ladies grab your man before the best ones are taken! This event is great fun, the men tee off the first (whites) and the ladies take the 2nd shot and so on, the ladies then tee off at the 2nd. You use half of your combined handicaps and its matchplay!
The letters drawn 23rd May were VIAG and no one picked these as their letters so the jackpot rolls over to 2,900. The 5 lucky dippers each winning 20 were Roxanne O’Harte Leonard’s Island, Loreto Traynor Ballybay, Mary Connolly Clones, Helen Connolly Millbrook and Sinead McCarthy Ballybay.
The May Monthly Medal Competition will take place this weekend Sat./Sun. 28th/29th. Time Sheet in operation. Tel: 047 56017
