During our 25 years in existance we have gone from strength to strength and we are now rated as one of the top courses in Ireland.

We have held Munster and National Competitions including Adult, Juvenile and Inter County Competitions.

This year we held the pinnacle of them all 'The Gents National Strokeplay Championships', where we recieved rave reviews for the running of this Championship Competiton and of our excelent course and club house from all the visitors to our club on this day and all throughout the year.

Our club has recieved National and International awards from the P.P.U.I, Waterford City & County Community & Voluntary Awards and the international F.I.P.P.A over the years.

We are very proud of the progress that our club has made over the last quarter of a century, so anyone who has or has not seen our picturesque course and club please come along on October 26th You will not be dissapointed.

Breda O'Donnell(3) and Jacinta O'Mahoney (3) Bridget Walsh(2), Lorraine Troy (2), Cait Mulcahy , Mary O'Neill, Corinne McGee, Mary Walsh, Eilish Sullivan and Ann Wall now has a hole in one for the women's section.

Bonus Number

This weeks winner of the bonus number is Cliona Wall, number 31

Pitch Marks
Leaving Pitch Marks when playing destroys the greens, it takes a lot of care and attention to keep them in pristine condition, so all members and green fees are asked to repair them and use the correct repairer when doing so.
Do not use club heads to repair a pitch mark as this damages the green. Always use a pitch repairer
Also do not use the club head to take balls out of holes on greens as this damages the hole. 

If anyone has an hour or two Mondays to Fridays to spare to give a hand helping on the course you would be very welcome.

Did you know?

Up to a few years ago there were 6 pitch and putt courses in County Waterford,
Ashgrove, Cunnigar, Ferry Bank, Waterford Crystal, St Otterans and Tramore.

Now sadly we have only 2 registered with the P.P.U.I The Cunnigar and Tramore.

So therefore it is essential for everyone in our club to pull together so we will remain one of the top clubs in the country which we are noted and respected for.

It is important that we have strong clubs in Waterford to keep the County Waterford flag flying.
