154 entries for the lottery drawn by Liam McLaughlan and 2 people had 3 numbers so its clearly getting closer, but still no winners this week.

The jackpot numbers were 2, 3, 13, 20.

The rollover takes the jackpot up to £2599.50 – so good luck for next week!

As we begin the countdown to Christmas and Hogmanay we’re spicing things up so if the Jackpot isn’t won over the next 3 weeks, there’ll be £100 to share among anyone who gets three numbers, with the money being credited to your card.

New Year Party – £25 per ticket – from 7:30pm to late – please pay for your ticket at the bar using your club account – a few tickets still available

Children’s Christmas Party – £10 per ticket – ages 3 to 8 – on the 15th December – the event starts at 3pm – please pay at the bar using your club account

The Children’s Christmas presents are being bought this week so please buy tickets by Wednesday.

Composite course – The composite course is in effect, and we’ve had a lot of positive feedback with the set up, particularly the 1-18-17 start, which some have suggested could be a favourable way to change the course. If you have any comments on it please send an email into greens@prestonfieldgolf.com.

The Course this winter – Please can all members: rake bunkers, repair pitch marks, avoid walking or taking trolleys near or into white lined areas or walking over areas that have “A” frames, these are in place to protect certain areas of our course – For course updates please see the signage at the front of the golf shop. We recommend winter wheels for trolleys – if you are interested in making your trolley wheels winter friendly please speak to Scott, Chris or Dan.

Donations for Centenary Committee – The centenary is fast approaching and the centenary committee are looking for any donations that club members might be able to provide. One suggestion that’s been made is that we should have free coffee, encouraging people to donate the price of a coffee to the centenary fund every time they have a cup, by placing a collection box on the bar. Council will look to discuss this at their next meeting.
