Captain’s Drive In 2018
Following a frosty start the sun made a welcome appearance on the first tee at 3pm as the ladies and gents supporters gathered in mass for the 2018 Captains Drive In. Lady Captain Noreen Byrne had the honour and dissected the fairway with a drive of which Lexi Thompson would have been proud. Junior captain Max Quinn was next up and carried the fairway bunkers with a superb drive. Men’s Captain Willie Lyons was next up and following a rousing cheer from the assembled crowd drilled another superb drive down the fairway. With the formalities concluded all returned to the warmth of the clubhouse for the completion of the event. Willie delivered a rousing speech in which he thanked everyone for attending and set down his plans for a programme of events to make our 25th anniversary year an extra special occasion at West Waterford. This was followed by an address from our Lady Captain Noreen Byrne which received tumultuous applause from the audience. The customary draw for a half sub followed and Richard O’Gorman was the lucky winner here. Second prize was won by Marie T Curran. All in all a perfect captain’s drive in and we wish every success to Willie Lyons, Noreen Byrne and junior captain Max Quinn as they embark on what promises to be a memorable 2018 at the club.
Comeragh Oil Winter League Round 2
Due to the prevailing weather conditions round 2 of the Comeragh Oil winter league has been extended to Sunday 14th January. 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.
