Successful Sunshine Classic at West Waterford

Our annual fundraising event lived up to its name last week as players turned out in force in the brilliant sunshine to support the event.  In all, 95 teams competed for the valuable prizes and we would like to thank everyone for their support.  Things looked gloomy on the first weekend following the torrential rain on Sunday and Monday.  A decision was taken to extend the classic to Sunday 21st April and this proved to be a wise decision in the end.  The sunshine returned on Wednesday and from then on the entries just flowed in with Friday and Saturday extremely busy.  The score box remained sealed as contenders wondered what score would be required to get in the prizes.  The compliments rolled in on the newly renovated bunkers as visitors remarked on the fact that each time they return to West Waterford there are always new improvements to be seen.  Visitors and members enjoyed the complimentary refreshments at the hut after the 9th and availed of the opportunity to have a chat and a cuppa.  A lot of organization has gone into our classic and we thank the many volunteers who gave of their time and expertise.  A special word of thanks to our main sponsor Dungarvan Transport and the many other sponsors who contributed in any way.  Well done to our efficient chairperson and lady captain Jean O Donovan who ensured that we all attended to our duties to ensure that everything worked to perfection.  The presentation of prizes took place on Sunday night in front of a crowded clubhouse and we appreciate the attendance of most of the prize winners.  As the curtain falls on another hugely successful classic we extend a very special thank you to everyone who played in the event.  Congratulations to the prizewinners and to everyone else we hope you enjoyed the West Waterford Welcome as we look forward to seeing you all in the near future.
