 Club Fundraising Classic at West Waterford extended to Sunday 21st April

Owing to the bad weather on Sunday we have decided to extend our classic up to Sunday 21st April.  This means you can play any day this week and on Sunday next 21st April.  The event got underway on Saturday when we had  over 20 teams.  First prize is 4 x €250 Harvey Travel vouchers.  Follow up prizes include golf for 4 at Connemara GC and two nights accommodation at the Station House Hotel apartments in Clifden.  You could also win B&B at Mount Wolseley including golf and dinner for 4.  If you fancy something nearer home we are offering a fourball at Fota Island GC including dinner in the clubhouse. The event will run over eight days with the best score claiming the top prize.  There will also be a daily prize and of course a special prize for the ladies.  The winners will be decided based on the best 18 hole team score over the eight days. Presentation of prizes in the clubhouse on Sunday 21st April at 8pm.  Once again the format will be a team of 4 which can be ladies, gents or mixed.
