Ladies Christmas party night:
On Sat. night last, our new Lady Captain, Nora Flynn, hosted a very enjoyable Christmas Party in the clubhouse. A great turnout of our lady members was treated to a fabulous meal by Ken, Jean & their staff from the Garden Kitchen Café …with special mention to the homemade mince pies.
Thanks to all those who sang, for the recitations, the jokes, the chat & the laughter. Also, thanks to those who organised the spot prizes. It was a memorable, enjoyable return to the good times in West Waterford Golf Club.

Gay Hurley starts his DP World Tour journey
Well done to Gary who embarked on his rookie season on the DP World Tour this past week, at the Investec South African Open in Johannesburg, having secured his playing card at Q-School last month. Gary looks like he is fitting in well are the top tier of European golf, fitted on his season debut, finishing a very respectable 35th place, with rounds of 69, 70, 71 and 73. However it was highlighted by eagling the 18th on 3 successive rounds, and almost making a hole in one in the 3rd round. We look forward to following Gary for the rest of this year & into next year.
