On Thursday night a large enthusiastic group of members gathered in West Waterford Clubhouse for our AGM. The meeting was preceded by an EGM at which some small changes to our Constitution were passed. Austin Spratt thanked all the members for their support over the years and commented that 2018 had been a busy year for the Club with a number of improvements carried out on the course and he indicated that further upgrades will continue in 2019.
Ladies AGM: The 2018 AGM welcomed the appointment of Jean O Donovan as our incoming Captain. An avid golfer Jean has been a member of West Waterford for a number of years. Her organisational skills are legendary and we can look forward to an action packed year. Jean thanked our very popular outgoing Captain Noreen Byrne who had such a great year at the helm.
Jean will be assisted by our Lady Vice-Captain Phil Kelly, our efficient Secretary Ciara Donnelly, Stella Kinsella remains on as our capable Treasurer while Aine Parks holds the Scissors as the Handicap Secretary. Nell Suipeil is in charge of Competitions while Frances Carroll is the PRO. Joining the committee are Denise Nugent and Bridget Blackwell. Noreen Byrne remains on the Committee in the Ex Officio role.
Winter League: Jean announced the most interesting “Named” teams for the upcoming Winter League. All the teams appear to be very well balanced so the competition should be fierce. The first round, the Singles Format should be played between the 1st December and 23rd December.
Christmas Night: Next Saturday Night the two new Captains, Tom Higgins and Jean host a social evening in the Clubhouse commencing at 7.30 pm. Music, Song and Craic are guaranteed.
