One Governing Body – Gents Members Meeting Tuesday  8th January

Since 2015 the Golfing Union of Ireland (GUI) and Irish Ladies Golfing Union (ILGU) have been engaged in significant consultations with member clubs, volunteers, club golfers, and branch and union officials with the aim of establishing a new governing body – Golf Ireland – to govern and promote the game of golf on the island of Ireland, replacing the existing organisations, the GUI, ILGU and Confederation of Golf in Ireland.  Already, based on those discussions a proposal on how these objectives can be achieved has emerged, and this proposal has been approved unanimously by the Board of the GUI and also by the Board of the ILGU.  All affiliated clubs are urged to vote on the proposal.  In view of this all members of the mens club at West Waterford golf club are invited to a meeting in the clubhouse on Wednesday 8th January 2019 at 7.30 pm sharp.  Members can familiarize themselves with this proposal by logging on to Golfnet and clicking on the One Governing Body link. A selection of relevant podcasts is also available on this website.
