Ladies Notes w/e Sun 18th Oct 2020

As I write these Notes I am thinking of how lucky we are to have access to a golf course in these unusual times. It is just wonderful to get out in the air and away from the News for a few hours! You might be playing reasonably well or not so well but it really does not matter. Hopefully we will be allowed to continue to play as we enter a new phase of COVID-19 restrictions. It is vitally important that we continue to follow all the protocols in place and stay safe.

Catherine Ruane – Queen of the

A Little Quieter in West Waterford! This week West Waterford was a little quieter as the Level 3 Covid regulations kicked in. Unfortunately it was necessary to defer our President Pat Murphy’s competition. However plans are underway to run the competition at a later stage. At the moment it is more important that we all comply with the current regulations in place. On-going competitions are still running so there is no excuse not to go out and play!

Great Scoring in Cleanzone Open Ladies Day: Thursday was a tough day on the golf course, but that did not deter some of the ladies who played in the generously sponsored Cleanzone Champagne Classic.

2020 has been an unusual year for all of us and running a Captain’s Prize in September was a first. However on Friday and Saturday last the lady members took to the fairways with gusto to try and win a beautiful painting put up by our popular Lady Captain Phil Kelly. There was a beautiful array of prizes and we all set out hoping we could “bag” one!

Phil would like to acknowledge the support shown to her, not alone by the members and Committee but also by Austin

June Whyte enjoys a Purple patch! It was a case of déjà vu on Sunday last as June Whyte went up to accept the winner’s trophy in the Bernie Twomey Memorial competition from Bernie’s sister Reena McDonnell.

Catherine Ruane played her usual solid golf to take second place with 38 points playing off 18 while her mother Deirdre maintained her good
