Something for Everyone…

It’s been a busy few weeks at the club with the gents and ladies matchplay competitions in full swing. Our various weekly open competitions are being well supported and continue through the month of September. We have had a steady flow of societies each week and the comments on the course have been most complimentary. You may have noticed the new flower bed at the back of the par 3 4th hole with the hydrangeas coming into full bloom at the moment. On return visits to West Waterford our visitors regulary comment on the fact that there is always some

President’s Prize Mr Pat Murphy 16th and 17th August.

Following weeks of preparation to get the course in tip top condition our president Pat Murphy swapped the overalls for the green blazer to welcome players to the 26th presidents Prize on Friday and Saturday 16th and 17th August.  Mother nature intervened to water the course on Friday morning and play got underway at 12.45.  Full whites combined with some treacherous pin positions and a strong breeze ensured that it would require an exceptional performance to lay hands on the coveted trophy.  While many players struggled with the testing course, Andy Hickey (6) played superbly to record

Irish Open at Lahinch

A large contingent from the club made the trip to Lahinch over the four days last weekend.  This was an opportunity to support our hero Seamus and see at first hand his performance in a major event on home soil.  Of course we would have liked a different result but a true supporter accepts the highs and lows in any sport and looks  forward to better days ahead.  Seamus was proud to be there and we were equally proud to cheer him on.  We all relished the occasion and the tired limbs and aching feet will heal in time.  It’s
