INTER CLUB TEAMS
Our foursomes team under the guidance of their manager Elaine who had a nail biting victory over Thurles GC recently, took on our neighbours West Waterford on Sunday 21st May on home territory. To say that our ladies were on fire is testament to the fabulous golf played by all pairings!! Manager Elaine had a running commentary on the WhatsApp group, keeping everybody informed from tee to green of the current standings at time of posting!!
The calibre of golf from our girls was such that matches were won on the 13th and 15th respectively and the all square match called in, fantastic result!! Thanks to the members who came to support their team, it was much appreciated. The next leg of the tournament will be on home course against Waterford Castle on a date to be confirmed.
