BUSY WEEK IN WEST WATERFORD
As the lovely spell of weather continues West Waterford is a busy place at the moment. Credit must be given to Morrie Ferncombe and his team for the effort they are putting in to make the course so good at the moment. Also special mention must go to the large number of volunteers who are busy tidying up the surrounding areas of the Club in readiness for the season ahead.
WINTER LEAGUE: This year there is great activity in the Winter League. The current dry spell has certainly brought the team members out as they try to improve on their previous scores. The competition is hoting up and it will be interesting to see what team is on top when the second round is completed on February 17th.
SOCIAL MEDIA: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram are words we may not have been familiar with ten years ago. However Social Media is where it is at now! Conor Blackwell and Thomas Conway are our Social Media people and are doing a great job for the Club. As members we can also contribute by following the activities of the Club on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Your Tweets and Likes are important and appreciated. Please ensure that you have submitted your correct email and mobile number to Gillian.
SEAMUS POWER IN SPARKLING FORM: Golfers throughout Ireland were glued to the TV last night for the final round of the American Express competition from La Quinta in California. Seamus was out in the second last group following a stunning three days of golf which left him just two shots off the lead. However a double bogey at the first was a nightmare start. It was to Seamus’s credit that he returned a score of 14 under to tie 14th place. Over the last three weeks Seamus has performed brilliantly and we look forward to his next outing in a couple of weeks time.
CONDOLENCES: On Thursday last there was a large Guard of Honour at the Parish Church to honour Michael Walsh, Coolnagour who sadly passed away on Monday last. Michael was Captain in 2004 and one of his best qualities was that he had a unique way of including everyone. We had great fun that year on the course, and even more importantly in the 19th! On behalf of our Lady Captain I would like to express our sympathy to Michael’s wife Lena, and family, Emma, Francis, Philip, Enda and Stephen.
It only came to my notice this week that our hardworking Administrator Gillian Hickey also had a family bereavement recently. On behalf of our Lady Captain I would like to express our sympathy to Gillian and family on the death of Sam Elstead.
