Successful Annual General Meeting: On Monday night last West Waterford was a busy place as the Annual General Meeting for the Ladies and Mens Club was held. Ciara Donnelly, our outgoing Lady Captain was congratulated on a wonderful year. Ciara’s organisational skills shone through throughout the year and Ciara was always available to welcome visitors to the Club. Indeed, as Ciara said herself, she did not have to cancel any competition or event due to bad weather conditions!
Overall 2022 was a very successful year for the ladies. Even though no pennants were won there were very good entries in all our competitions and the Majors were hotly contested. The new Get into Golf programme attracted a number of new members and the mentoring programme currently in place is working well.
We welcome our incoming Lady Captain Nora Flynn. Nora is a very active member of West Waterford and has served on a number of committees in recent years. Recently retired, I have no doubt that Nora will bring much to the Lady Captain’s role and there should be fun times ahead. Following the election of officers discussions took place on the Winter League and the Golfer of the Year competitions. It really is a great sign of the Ladies Club to see such a large turnout and lively discussion on Club matters.
On behalf of all the Lady Members I wish Nora the very best of luck in her role as Lady Captain and to Michael Cass on his appointment as Men’s Captain.
