Junior Academy News

This was a very busy week for the Junior Academy. Beginning on Tuesday, we had our regular weekly competition including cards for Junior Golfer of the Year.

On Wednesday, 10 of our J4s and J5s travelled to Faithlegg GC in the east of the county for Round 3 of the Deise League. Unfortunately, the poor weather got the better of some of the lads, but all in all it was a memorable experience.

Finally, on Thursday it was the turn of our young cadets. 6 of them travelled to Tipperary GC where a great welcome was received in the evening sunshine. Some excellent golf was witnessed and congrats to Tara, Maebh, Daniel, Jayden, Fionnán and Daragh for representing the club with such distinction.

A big thank you must go to all parents for travelling to both Faithlegg and Tipperary. The Junior Academy wouldn’t exist without your support.

Next week, it’s on to Waterford Castle GC for round 4 of the Deise League on Tuesday 1st August and we’ll get back to to our regular days in West Waterford on Saturday 5th August.
