Jimmy Bruen Shield Munster Semi Final.

Manager Stephen Spillane will consider himself unlucky when his team lost by just one hole to the eventual winners Kinsale at Tipperary Golf Club on Sunday 22nd July. In the opening match, Morrie Ferncombe and Shane Roche recorded an impressive 6 &5 victory. Micheal Gee and Andy Hickey followed up to win their match 4 & 3. Colm O Callaghan and Richard Ronayne were beaten 3 &2, and Ken Fenton and Des Cleary were also beaten 3 & 2. It was now down to the deciding match and John O Mahoney & Richard Hyde rallied from 3 down to win 17 and 18 taking the match to the final hole and a possible playoff. Unfortunately the hole was halved in par and so ended a fantastic Bruen Shield adventure from our boys. Manager Stephen Spillane wishes to express his sincere thanks to the entire panel for their dedication and cooperation throughout the campaign. On behalf of the club we say thank you and well done to Stephen and his panel for doing the club proud in 2018.

Club Matchplay Events.

Due to a crowded fixture list and holiday commitments we have fallen behind in round 2 of the Club Singles and Club Fourball. Outstanding matches should be completed as soon as possible.


Something for Everyone at West Waterford

With everyone out to get the most from the Summer sunshine, many golfers may find 18 holes of golf a bit much at the moment. You are reminded that we have a variety of 9 hole and 13 hole events throughout our open week, and after that we also have weekly short game events. Why not come along, play a few holes and relax under the umbrellas on the balcony with a snack and a cold drink. You are always welcome at West Waterford.
