Captain’s Drive In 2018
On Sunday 7th January members are invited to our captains drive in which takes place at 2.45pm. Captain Willie Lyons and lady captain Noreen Byrne will be joined by our incoming junior captain Max Quinn as they launch the New Year at West Waterford. All are welcome to join us afterwards in the clubhouse where the draw for a half sub for 2019 will be held. All paid up members will be entered in this draw.
Comeragh Oil Winter League
Round 2 started on Tuesday 26th December and will continue from Monday Jan 1st to Sunday Jan 7th. We would ask all team captains to contact their team members and get them out for the second round. As you will see from our website there is very little between the teams following round 1 with any of the 15 teams in a position to make the top eight who will compete in the matchplay rounds. Members can play any day from Monday to Sunday with their best score counting for the team. Due to the large numbers playing we ask everyone to please use the BRS online booking system. It would also be of enormous help if you could please put your name, date, handicap and team name on the scorecard. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
Gary Hurley Visits West Waterford
Our European Tour professional Gary Hurley paid a visit to the club over the Christmas holidays. Gary wishes to express season’s greetings to all his fans and wants to say thank you to everyone for their continued support. Gary is well into his preparations for the upcoming season on the European Challenge Tour and all at West Waterford wish him the very best of luck in 2018
Golf and Breakfast Special on Saturday 23rd December
A big thank you to our chef John Joyce who organized this first time event at West Waterford golf club. Following numerous texts, phone calls and person to person contacts John’s efforts were rewarded when up to 40 ladies and gents turned out for this unique occasion. The weather was kind and the players put the Christmas rush on hold for a few hours. Some chose to have the breakfast before playing but most of the entrants opted for the 13 holes to work up an appetite. This was the full Irish at it’s very best and as we gathered round the log fire roaring in the stove, all were loud in their praise of the event. Well done John and we hope that it’s not too long before the next one.
Juniors Christmas Outing and Quiz
We had a good turnout of juniors for the Christmas Party outing on Friday 29th December. The smart phones and i pads were put aside for a couple of hours as the young guns lined out for the 2 person scramble at 2p.m. The pairing of Simon Kelly and Sam Dalton emerged victorious. On returning to the clubhouse the boys were treated to a hot meal and the empty plates told the story. A general knowledge and sports quiz followed and the rivalry from the course reverted to the clubhouse in a keenly fought contest. Well done to the winners, Sergei Quinn, Tom O Connell and Declan Walsh. A big thank you to Justin Spratt and Michael Byrne who organized the event and were present on the day to greet the lads. Congratulations and best of luck to Max Quinn who was elected as junior captain for 2018.

The management and staff would like to thank everyone who supported our bar and restaurant over the holiday period and throughout 2017. Normal service has now resumed and we look forward to seeing you for lunch any Sunday from 12.30 – 3.30.
We express our condolences to Paul Carroll on the passing of his sister. Also to the Cunningham family Clashmore on the passing of Tom. May Stephanie and Tom rest in peace.
