Captains Prize 2019

Our captain Mr Tom Higgins hosted his captain’s prize over the weekend.  The action got underway on Friday afternoon in mixed weather conditions with the later entrants enjoying the best of the weather conditions.  Denis Herlihy emerged as clubhouse leader with a great score of 39 pts, closely followed by Dave Walsh with 37.  Weather conditions on Saturday provided a stern test with wind and rain in the early morning.  Despite this all entrants turned out and Des Cleary and Martin O Driscoll returned 39 pts each.  Clive Cooney, Jack O Donnell and Brian Foley were on their heels with 38 pts.  Just a single point separated the top 6 as we headed into the final round on Sunday.  A strong south westerly wind greeted the qualifiers once again and it would take skill patience and perseverance for anyone with an eye on the coveted prize.  Patsy Collins (16) carded a magnificent 39 pts to add to his 34 to claim the lead in the clubhouse.  Martin O Driscoll could only manage 34 pts to enter into a tie for top spot.  On a count back Patsy emerged as the winner with a best second round card.  With the counts and recounts completed all was ready for the presentation on Sunday night.  Our president Pat Murphy introduced Tom Higgins to rapturous applause from a packed clubhouse.  Our lady captain Jean O Donovan was also on hand to complete the presentation party.  Our winner Patsy Collins was loud in his praise of the facilities and friendly atmosphere at West Waterford golf club.  Following the presentation, Liam, Ali, and staff served a delicious selection of finger food while Richie Power provided the music.  As our 27th captain’s prize draws to a successful conclusion we say thank you to our captain Tom and to everyone who supported this prestigious event.


Dungarvan Golf International

Our club was delighted to welcome visitors and friends from far and wide to the 19th Dungarvan Golf International played last week.  West Waterford hosted the event on Monday and Tuesday and it was great to meet the many golfers who return annually to this popular event.  We were well represented at the prize giving function in the Gold Coast on Thursday night and it was nice to personally thank those who continue to support the event.  Our captain Tom Higgins made a huge impression with a number of songs from his vast repertoire as he entertained the large crowd.  Thank you to all who supported the Golf International and to all at the Gold Coast for their warm welcome on the night.
