Ladies Notes w/e Sunday 12th September 2021

The Coastal Alliance Captain’s Day took place in Tramore GC on Wednesday 8th Despite a little fog rolling in from the sea West Waterford’s Mary Spratt came second, and Mary French gained third place. Its a good idea to join this alliance when its set up for this coming year- you get to play in one of the participating courses on the first or second Thursday of each month in Autumn/ Spring.
The Junior Alliance
In the Junior Alliance the WHS is 19.0 to 28.9. There are about 12 clubs involved and the first outing takes place in West Waterford GC on Monday 20th September. it will continue on alternate Mondays in the different clubs. Fun Scramble: a nine hole fun Scramble was held o Friday night last. Our very own Touring professional Seamus Power was in attendance, and members had a chance to meet and greet him. The winners of the scramble were Rena Landers, John Walsh and Michael Cass. Second came Nora Flynn, Joe Keane and Stephen Walsh. Watch this spot for further Scrambles.
Golfing day out in Faithlegg: the golfing day out in Faithlegg was a celebration of Nell Suipéil’s year, well organised as you would expect. It began with tea, coffee and scones. Then the teams played 18 holes Champagne scramble with benign weather conditions. First was Mary Herlihy, Finola Butler, Mary Spratt and Geraldine Hickey. Everybody had a most pleasant day of golf .
