New Year’s Eve Party
A special 25th Anniversary celebration is planned for New Year’s Eve and we’d love to have an extra special West Waterford turnout. The night will consist of food (hot buffet), and fun with Fancy Dress (optional) and of course friendship for just €20. The clubhouse is beautifully decorated for Christmas and a great night is assured. There is even transport available to bring you home.Just stick your name on the sheets or give Gillian a call on (058) 43216. Family and friends are especially welcome as they always are in West Waterford.
As we countdown the final days to Christmas, the first round of the Winter League comes to an end on Sunday 23rd December. There has been a great turnout so far and good scores too so it’ll be interesting to see the results on completion of Round 1. The weather looks set to improve from mid-week so no doubt the Winter League ladies will be out in force to improve scores already in. Round 2 commences immediately afterwards on 24th December so everyone will have a chance to brush off the cobwebs and get out on the course over the Christmas holidays.
New Golf Rules
As you all know, the new golf rules come into being on 1st January and we all need to become more familiar with them. The 2019 New Rules Guides are available in the locker room as well as a sheet with the most common rules so pick them up and browse through them when you’re relaxing after your Christmas dinner. Alternatively, just look them up under www.randa.org, and there are loads of videos available on line, e.g. www.golfexpert.com. You can also download the full guide from the App Store so you’ll always have the rules close at hand whenever needed as most of us don’t go very far without our phones these days.
The December 9 Hole continues with 2 best cards to count.
On behalf of Lady Captain Jean and her committee, I want to take this opportunity to wish each member and their families a very peaceful Christmas and a very Happy 2019 as well as a successful year of golf.
