West Waterford Swim to Victory: On Sunday the Junior Foursomes team enjoyed a great victory on a very wet Mallow Golf Course. The rain ceased for only five minutes! West Waterford recorded a fine win over Clonmel in the morning and in the afternoon defeated a very good Fermoy side. Congratulations to Deirdre & Catherine Ruane, June White and Mary Lou Carroll, Eithne Ashby and Jo Swaine and Joan Sheehan and Mary T Curran who all played a vital role in Sunday’s victory. Mary Herlihy played a “Blinder” as Assistant Team Manager as did the Super Supporters Tony, Phil, Eileen, Marie, Suzanne and Frances. The quarter finals will take place in Limerick Golf course on August 10th.
Mary Radley and Margaret Connolly grab a little slice of History: Recently West Waterford have introduced the 9 Hole Qualifier competitions. This is proving to be a very popular concept and I am delighted to report that Mary Radley and Margaret Connolly, both great Club members recorded victories in the first two runnings of this competition.
Adesco Champagne Scramble: The Champagne scramble is always a popular format and on Thursday last there was a nice entry in the Jack O Hehir sponsored event. Our Lady Captain teamed up with Marcella McGovern and Grace Hayes from Dungarvan to record a fine victory with 62 points. In second place we had Deirdre Ruane, Una Mulligan and Joan Nugent with 59 points, a trio we will no doubt be hearing about over the Captain’s weekend and in third we had Mary Lou Carroll, Marie T Curran and Mary Herlihy with 58 points, regulars in the Winners enclosure.
Jacquies Hair Design Competition: This competition was cancelled a few weeks ago, but the re-run provided Denise Nugent with a good win. Playing off 29 Denise had 36 points. Last year’s Lady Captain’s winner Ciara Donnelly playing off 28 had 30 points and in third was the ever consistent Jo Swaine playing off 16 with 28 points.
Busy week ahead: This is a busy week with the following competitions taking place: On Thursday the Maria Moloney boutique competition kindly sponsored by Margaret O Sullivan takes place. Also those who did not get a chance to enter the GOY 18 Hole Stroke competition will get an opportunity to play.
Would you like to play 9 holes with PGA Player Seamus Power? Throughout the week the Club is running a novel scramble for members. The prize will be a once in a lifetime opportunity to play 9 Holes with Seamus. This should be a great experience for the lucky winners, probably not so much for Seamus!!
