Ladies Notes w/e Sun 7th June 2020

Busy Times despite delay : The time-sheets in West Waterford, as in all Clubs are very busy. The nice weather and the excellent condition of the course has really added to the enjoyment of playing a round of golf. Unfortunately, it is very disappointing that we are not allowed hold competitions until the commencement of Phase 3 on June 29th. I know that many clubs had protocols in place to run local competitions. One bit of good news is the relaxation in the travel protocol which now allows us to travel throughout the county! Roll on the 29th June when

Late Jimmy Harty A Master of his Trade

With great sadness we recently learnt of the passing of Jimmy Harty who had a long association with West Waterford golf club. Back in the early nineties Jimmy was engaged as the main contractor in the construction of West Waterford golf course. Well known for his expertise in land drainage he had no problem turning his hand to this new and exciting challenge. To quote the man himself “I could get water to run up a hill with this Hy-Mac.” Jimmy met up with another master Eddie Hackett and together they planned
