Silver Anniversary Sunshine Classic
Preparations are well underway for our upcoming Sunshine Classic at West Waterford Golf Club. The Classic committee is leaving no stone unturned in ensuring that our 25th Anniversary event offers a unique opportunity to enjoy a round of golf in welcoming surrounding, on a course that has produced two professional golfers.
The Sunshine Classic has become our major fundraiser down the years and has contributed enormously to the upkeep and ongoing development of our facilities. For this we are eternally grateful to our members and especially the many visitors who return annually to support our classic. We have talked to, and listened to the views of everyone who has participated in the Classic down the years. As a result we have aimed to run the event in as fair a manner as we can thereby giving all competitors a realistic chance of winning. In this special year we have increased the prizes (not the prices) to say thank you to our supporters. The main prize of 4x€400 Travel vouchers gives the winners the flexibility to use their prize when, where, and how, they decide. The follow-up prizes include overnight accommodation, dinner and golf in some of the top venues in the region. Our Classic this year takes place from Saturday 24th March to Sunday 1st April inclusive.
Super Sunshine Raffle
In conjunction with our Classic we are also holding a raffle. First prize is a fantastic €500 voucher from Harvey Travel. You could also win an overnight stay with breakfast and dinner at any of the Flynn group hotels. Other prizes include dinner for 2 at the Cliff House Hotel and the Tannery restaurant. All members are requested to support the raffle by buying a book of tickets or maybe selling a few books. Tickets are now on sale from committee members, also at the office and in
the bar and restaurant.
The Boys are back in Town
On Saturday last our touring team of 8 returned from a week of altitude training in Albufeira Portugal. Four rounds in five days provided a stern test for the select group who shall remain nameless to protect the innocent. Scores will not be disclosed to protect the handicaps.
Suffice it to say that a great time was had by all and applications are now being accepted for Operation Transformation.
