Congratulations To Seamus Power On Regaining PGA Tour Card
There was great relief and joy in West Waterford last week when Seamus Power regained his PGA Tour Card in a nail-biting finish in Florida, giving him a second chance at PGA Tour glory. He was playing in the Web.com tour Championship at Atlantic Beach Country Club near Jacksonville where he finished tied for 48th and went on to clinch the last of 25 cards via the Web.com Tour Finals money list. Seamus said afterwards “That was about as stressed as I have ever been on the golf course when I was finishing”. Everyone in West Waterford were absolutely thrilled for Seamus and send their congratulations to the Touraneena man. Best of luck Seamus in your second year on the PGA Tour.

Work Underway on Bunkers
Glad to report that work is now underway on the bunkers on the first and tenth holes. At the moment this is being undertaken on a trial basis. If as anticipated the trials are successful, work on all bunkers will get underway immediately with a view to having the project completed in 2018. We regret any inconvenience caused during the process, but we can assure you this is only temporary, while the improvements are permanent. Please check notice board for local rules while work is in progress.
Club Singles sponsored by Pat Murphy
The stage is set for the final between John O’Connell and John Keane as we anxiously await the chosen date. O’Connell will be wanting to make amends for the club fourball, but Keano has been keeping a low profile of late and will fancy a shot at the title.
