Sunshine Classic a Great Success
Our annual Sunshine Classic originally delayed due to Covid-19 took place from Saturday July 25th to Sunday August 2nd. A lot of work went into preparations for the event with Classic chairperson Neil Suipeal leaving no stone unturned in ensuring that everything was in place. The course as always was in excellent condition and Covid regulations were strictly adhered to on and off the course. Throughout the week members and visitors arrived in numbers to enjoy the experience of playing West Waterford golf course. Weather conditions for the most part were ideal and it came as no surprise that entries overall were 25% up on last year. We had a small but representative group of prizewinners on Sunday evening for the presentation of prizes, once again observing covid regulations. We would like to thank our sponsors, Coolcormack Residents Association and Dungarvan Transport. Thanks also to the Classic committee. To the many teams from near and far and to our loyal members we say thank you most sincerely for your support.

Comeragh Oil League Final
Jimmy Murphy’s Team L booked their place in the final with a 5,1/2 to 2.1/2 victory over Liam Hansbury’s Team H.

In the second semi final, Maurice Hallahan’s Team C clinched their place with Eddie Glavin securing a hard earned victory over Eamon Hickey in the decider.
