Annual Club Fundraising Classic at West Waterford

Our annual classic this year will run from Saturday 13th April to Saturday 20th April inclusive.  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.  Once again the format will be a team of 4 which can be ladies, gents or mixed.


Super Sunshine Raffle

In conjunction with our annual classic we are also running a raffle for some super prizes.  First prize is a €500 voucher from Harvey Travel.  You could also win B&B and one evening meal for two at any of the Flynn Group Hotels.  We are also offering Dinner for two at the Cliff House Hotel Michelin Star Restaurant.  A meal for two at the Tannery Restaurant Dungarvan completes the list of fabulous prizes.  Tickets are now on sale from committee members and can also be purchased at West Waterford golf club.


Wednesday is Seniors Day.

 We had our biggest turnout of the season on Wednesday last as this new competition gains momentum. The Midweek Medley is a 9 hole seniors competition for ladies and gents.  The emphasis is on enjoyment and a bit of banter followed by a cup of tea/coffee and a chat.  Be there at 11 am. for the draw for playing partners and 11.30 start.  We advise anyone arriving late to please ring in before 11.15 and they will be included in the draw.  It would be nice if we had a few more ladies so we can have at least one female on each team.


Dungarvan Golf International

Running from Monday 27th May to Thurs. 30th May, this tournament which is run over the three local courses, continues to prove popular with players coming from USA, England and Ireland taking  part.  This year we are hoping to encourage more members from the three local clubs to take part.
