3 Ball Scramble


3 Ball Scramble

We are hosting a 3 Ball Golf Scramble on the weekend of September 8th, 9th and 10th, at Ballinasloe Golf Club.

We are pleased to announce that there will be an opportunity to DRIVE away in a Brand New TIVOLI Jeep (as seen below), kindly provided by Whelan Car Sales (Portlaoise and Mountbellew) and SsangYong Ireland for a Hole in One on the 8th Tee*.

The Tivoli is a compact yet spacious SUV offering great style, safety and dynamic driving and is valued at €26,995. The car will be on display at the Mountbellew Vintage Show on Sunday 30th July, the Tullamore Show on Sunday 13th August and again at the Ballinasloe Golf Club on the weekend of the Scramble.

We will also have the Galway Bay FM Baycaster with us on the Saturday along with a Golf Simulator where there will be 2 Competitions being run throughout the day.

GELS Chairperson Arthur Carr said ‘We are delighted with the support received from Whelan Car Sales and Ssangyong Ireland. This is the first time a car has been up for a hole in one prize at the Ballinasloe Club during their 123year history. Pat McDonagh of SuperMacs and the Ballinasloe Credit Union have kindly sponsored the Galway Bay Fm Baycaster on Saturday 9th and the golf simulator for Saturday has been sponsored by Val Colleran of Utah and Sean Hogarty Flooring & DIY so local support has been huge too. We are looking forward to a great weekend, where everyone has not only some great golf but also an opportunity to learn more about Galway East Life Support and Suicide Prevention.’

We can’t thank our sponsors enough for their support in what is going to be a very enjoyable and exciting weekend.

The 8th Hole has been deemed the fairest hole for both Men and Women and there is also a prize for the best Ladies Team.

Hope to see you all there!
