Golf Society: The final outing for the society for 2016 took place on Saturday December 3rd at West Waterford Golf Club. The Christmas scramble is a fun outing and is a great way for beginners to get involved in the society and it was very well supported. There was a great buzz in the clubhouse beforehand, mainly, due to the complimentary ‘Hot Toddies’ courtesy of Mr Austin Spratt from West Waterford GC. It is the twenty fourth year to hold the Christmas Scramble at the Dungarvan venue and it is of great benefit to both parties. The course was in great condition and it is a credit to Austin and his staff that the course is so well presented for all visitors. Ray Rochford combined players to balance out teams and level out the competition. The winners on an impressive 70 were Tommy Galvin, Patsy Collins and Declan Galvin, second place on 71 were Sean Treacy, Joe Higgins and Tim Murphy and in third place on 72 were Tom Fitzgerald, Haulie Collins and Cormac Cremin. Best underage on 73 was Keane Kelly Budds, Cathal Deane and Ruardhi McSweeney. There was a prize for everyone who took part on the day which was well received. While presenting the prizes, Mr Tim Crotty thanked all those who turned up to play in this end-of-season ‘Fun Scramble’, he thanked Austin and the hard working staff at West Waterford for their hospitality throughout the day and for presenting a fabulous course on which to play. He thanked Dominic and Maurette Fogarty for once again sponsoring the outing, thanked Dr. Matt Morehan for additional prizes for second and third places and encouraged all to continue to support all our sponsors whenever we can. Also singled out for special mention was Bus Driver for the day, Haulie Collins who provided a very valuable courier service to ensure maximum enjoyment for those who availed of the service. He wished everyone a Happy Christmas and thanked them once again for supporting the society by playing in the outing.
