Bonus Number

This weeks winner of the bonus number is Sheila Hickey, number 18

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.
