It is with great sadness that we learn of the death of Watty Sullivan, who was an important and frequent presence in KGC in the early days of our Club. Thank you to Larry Halpin for this brief tribute.

“Watty was coach in KGC at the start of the club. He also coached the pupils in the college & helped design the present course. He was a true gentleman. As a teacher he emphasised the basics of golf in plain language: "You don't hit the ball. The ball gets in the way of the club." Watty was always very generous with his time. A half hour lesson could easily last for two hours with a few holes played afterwards. He was always more interested in helping you improve your game than earning the fee for a lesson. A great golfing character. RIP.“
