Gary Hurley Shines in Mauritius: West Waterford’s Gary Hurley’s exploits in golf are being widely reported on the Irish and International golf media channels. Since qualifying for the DP World Tour in October Gary has not missed a cut in his first three starts on this prestigious tour. Yesterday he finished a very creditable 14th in the AfrAsia Bank Open which was played in Mauritius. Gary has fitted in very comfortably on this tour and continues to show his natural talent on the golf course, but even more importantly his resilience and consistency. On behalf of our Lady Captain Nora Flynn and all the ladies in West Waterford we wish Gary continued success in 2023. At this stage he deserves a good rest over Christmas!
Frost Frost Everywhere! It was unusual to see Dungarvan and surrounding areas succumb to frost and frozen ground for a whole week! This is the Sunny South East after all! On Sunday the thaw commenced . Now is the time to dust down the Clubs, Charge the Trolley Battery and head for the fairways. There is no better way to work off the excess food and get a bit of peace and quiet!
