Presidents Prize 2021
Last weekend saw the staging of our final major of 2021 when our President Mr David Condon hosted his presidents prize for 2021. The 18 hole event was played over two days in brilliant sunshine and attracted a large entry on both days. As it transpired the big scores came in on Saturday with a number of players reaching the 40 point mark. However, it was long time member Phil Kinsella (20) who carded a magnificent 43points to pip Martin O Driscoll (17) by a single point. Colm O Callaghan (8) won the gross prize on a countback.
The presentation took place on Sunday evening with David’s family, friends and prizewinners present. Our captain Edward Hickey welcomed David and his family and acknowledged David Condons contribution to West Waterford down through the years. David was loud in his praise of the condition of the course and thanked all responsible. He also expressed his gratitude to everyone who helped with the staging of the presidents prize and to everyone who had played in the event.
As David presented the magnificent Criostal na Rinne trophy to the 2021 champion Phil Kinsella it marked the end of another successful year at West Waterford golf club. More significantly it was also marking the end of an era in our club as we look forward in confidence to a new and exciting future.
