Comeragh Oil Winter League 2020

While week one of the Winter League was a great success the incessant rain of the past week limited play with Sunday morning coming to our rescue when most of the regulars showed up as normal. Despite the interruption more than two thirds of the players have completed round one and we would hope to see most of the remainder this week. As can be seen from the early league table the league is already turning into a close contest and we urge those who have not yet played to make a special effort over the next week. For your convenience an A-Z list of team members is posted on the notice board in the hallway. So the message is clear, check your team, check your card, check your time, and come out and support your team and your club. Full details are posted in the hallway. Members not playing in the Winter League are welcome to play in the weekly competitions and are eligible for the weekly prizes.

Annual General Meeting

The twenty seventh annual general meeting of West Waterford golf club was held in the clubhouse on Wednesday 20th November. Despite the unfavourable weather conditions there was a large turnout on the night. Our outgoing captain Mr Tom Higgins opened the meeting and welcomed everyone. Our secretary Maurice Hallahan then read the minutes of the previous AGM which were approved and we moved on to the secretary’s report. As in previous years Maurice gave a detailed and precise account of the years events. Our treasurer Pat Power then presented his financial report which showed the club’s finances in a healthy position. Outgoing captain Tom Higgins addressed the meeting and expressed his gratitude to his hard working committee, the lady captain, and all the members for their contribution to the club and their cooperation in working with him throughout the year. Tom then introduced our incoming captain Mr Diarmuid Horgan. Having previously worked with the committee as president, Diarmuid said he was looking forward to his year in office and said he had no difficulty in taking up the position at a time when the challenge was great. We have been through many challenges together down the years and we are ready to stand together and deal with whatever arises. The ensuing applause was testament to the positive mood within West Waterford as we face into 2020. Our president Mr Pat Murphy, who has agreed to do a third term, addressed the meeting and said that he has worked in many capacities with Diarmuid Horgan down through the years. He acknowledged Diarmuid’s exceptional contribution to our club and is looking forward to continuing this successful partnership in the coming year.
