Main Club Sweepstake

Welcome to the Main Club Sweepstake

Welcome to the page for the Main Club Sweepstake. The Sweepstake is open to all members (playing members and social members) who are aged 18 or over and who wish to participate. The current system for the draw is that it comprises of a 3 month term. Entry is £15 per term (£5 per month) and we have one draw per month. The current monthly prize pool consists of FOUR prizes and there is a total prize fund of £70 for each month (£35, £20, £10 and £5). You have an equal chance to win in the monthly draw.

This term there will also be an additional £25 bonus drawn in September to anyone who hasn’t won a first or second place prize this term.

The more people that enter, the bigger the prizes!

We are open to new members joining us. Our next opening will be for the draws covering October – December. If you wish to join you can contact me at anytime before 30th September to enquire. I will then send you an opening email and if you still wish to join after that all you need to do is make your payment to the bank account and then email me to confirm it is paid. You will then be entered. I will begin taking payments in September 2020.

Why we run a sweepstake

The aim of the Sweepstake, apart from being able to win cash, is to help rise the funds for the main club section. This money will be used for the main club commitments such as maintenance and upkeep (such as handicap master annual subscription costs, sundries out on the course), prizes for board comps (e.g. Spring Vase, Club Champs etc), and any new purchases. Funding streams are tight and the hope is that this will help raise some money for which 100% of profits will be reintegrated back into the club. The sweepstake is NOT FOR PROFIT and pays out at least 50% of funds raised. The sweepstake is separate from the business of Pottergate and is being ran with their consent and support.
