Seamus Power

Seamus took a short break last week to attend his brother’s wedding.  As always our PGA professional took the time to visit the club and meet up with the members. He was also present at the Park hotel to accept the April monthly sports star award.  Seamus is now back in the US in preparation for his next tournament on the PGA tour. This will be the Charles Schwab Challenge at Forth Worth Texas, which carries a prize fund of $7,300,000.  Best of luck Seamus from all at West Waterford.  Looking forward to meeting you at the Irish Open in Lahinch.

Fred Perry Trophy

Des Cleary and his team will make the short trip to the Gold Coast where we take on the home team in yet another local derby on Monday June 20th.  Our team put in a good performance in the opening round vs Waterford Castle but we can expect a stern challenge from Gold Coast on their home patch. We always look forward to

visiting the Gold Coast and who knows maybe we can upset the odds on this occasion.  Tee off is at 3.15pm and as always support is most welcome.

 

Belvedere Trophy

With so many high handicappers showing exceptionally good form during the Winter League, our team manager Edward Hickey will be casting a serious eye over the relevant result sheets.  Our first game is a preliminary round vs Dunmore East with the winners playing Williamstown in the first round.  This round must be completed by 17/6/2019.  To be eligible a player must have had a handicap of 18 or over on January 1st 2018, and must have been over 25 years of age on the same date.  Eligible players are invited to put their names on the relevant sheet on notice board.

 

Irish  Mixed Foursomes

It’s that time of the year again when we need to get our panel together. The East Munster rounds of the Irish Mixed Foursomes will take place on 15th/16th June at the Gold Coast GC. The panel consists of a male and female with combined handicap of not less than 19 and pair must play off 27 or less. Anyone interested in participating, please put your names on the sheets, on the men’s board or for the ladies in the ladies locker room.
