Club Competitions:  Currently there is an on-going 13 Hole competition kindly sponsored by Joan Ronayne and also a 9 hole competition.


Coastal Alliance:  The  next round of the Coastal Alliance will take place on February 7th in West Waterford.


New Rules and Changes to GUI and ILGU:  Our Lady Captain Jean tells me that we are having a night on the Rules of Golf in the very near future.  All the recent updates will be discussed.  Also members should be aware that there is a proposal at National level to amalgamate the Men’s Golfing Union of Ireland and the Ladies Golfing Union of Ireland.  West Waterford will be holding a meeting in the very near future as all the golf clubs in Ireland are required to hold a ballot in their clubs on this issue. If you would like to get further information please visit the GUI and ILGU websites.


Best Wishes for 2019:  On behalf of our Lady members I would like to wish our Captains Tom Higgins and Jean O Donovan all the very best for a bumper year in 2019 and to our members a Happy, Peaceful and Healthy New Year.
