Congratulations to our hard-working treasurer, Stella Kinsella, who came 2nd in the Coastal Alliance held in West Waterford on 7th February.  Well done Stella.

Congratulations also to Eithne Ashby who was in the prizes in the Junior Alliance in Waterford Golf Club last week.  Well done Eithne.

The annual Munster Secretaries Information Meetings were recently held in Mallow and as everyone now knows we have new playing rules, and there are also some interesting competition changes in the pipeline so watch this space for more details in the coming weeks.

It’s that time of the year again when we’re thinking of the upcoming leagues.  The Draws have taken place and all are available in the locker-room and online.  No doubt the team     co-ordinators and team captains will be busy over the coming weeks.  With this in mind, it has been agreed to make a change to our uniform from black to navy so, therefore, from now on our uniform for the players, caddies and team managers will consist of our club jumper, white polo and navy trousers, skorts or shorts – a very classy look.

Our new competition, the Midweek Medley had it’s inaugural outing last Wednesday and was a great success with lots of chat and banter and looks sure to become a social outing, not forgetting the golf of course, every Wednesday.  If you’ve been hibernating over the winter or would just like an extra round of golf just pop to the Club on Wednesday @ 11 for coffee and golf @ 11.30.  It’s a 9 Hole competition for male and female members over 60.
