Course Development & 50/50 Draw

50/50 DrawAs you are aware, the first phase of the planned course development got underway early this year as the course bunker complex underwent dramatic changes with the addition of new bunkers and the removal of superfluous ones. This work was financed completely from money raised through the 50/50 draw as well as from donations.

It is hoped to continue the final part of the bunker work this coming October and in order to do this, we need you support. We are asking all of our members to help support the development by signing up for the monthly 50/50 draw. It only costs €8 per month and can be paid by monthly direct debit.

You can download and print off a copy of the direct debit form from here. The form can be completed and handed into the office or golf shop. Forms are also available from the office.

With your help, we can continue to climb the Top 100 Golf Course rankings and make Strandhill Golf Club the jewel in the crown of Sligo golf.
