Gents Notes w/e Sun 24th Jan 2021

Lockdown Continues
This time last year our Winter League was at an advanced stage with round 3 nearing completion. Little did we think that 12 months on the country would be in lockdown and all golfing activity at a standstill. But even as we console ourselves by laying low and watching Sky Sports and doing our daily excercise there’s tentative talk of when we can expect life as normal to resume. In the meantime we must keep up the fight against the pandemic and as the evenings grow longer we can dare to dream of the light at the end

Gents Notes w/e Sun 17th Jan 2021

Seamus Power got a chance to test his elbow and make a move towards winning back full playing rights after grabbing a last-gasp spot in last week’s Sony Open in Hawaii.
The West Waterford star was hoping to make his first start since the November surgery on his right elbow in The American Express at La Quinta in California this week. But as first alternate for the Sony Open, he was thrilled to get a late call to jet out to Waialae Country Club after Jonathan Vegas withdrew after a positive Covid-19 test.
It was Power’s fourth start in the

Gents Notes w/e Sun 29th Nov 2020

Dear Santa,
First of all we hope you are keeping well. Thank you for enlightening our Politicians to allow us back playing Golf from tomorrow 1st December. If it’s not too much of an ask, can you please enlighten, the very same Politicians over the festive season, that instead of closing down Golf again in 2021, they start to encourage more people to take up Golf; the holistic benefits of time spent in the great outdoors in West Waterford are well recognised. 
Secondly, any chance you can bring me a dozen new golf balls,

Fingers Crossed
As we enter the third week of Level 5 and the days grow shorter we live in hope of a return to some level of golf before too long. The signs at the moment are encouraging so let’s keep up the fight. Hand washing, sanitising and Social distancing are essential to the control of Covid-19. Golf clubs have set the standard in complying with the protocol so keep up the good work. All going well we would hope to return to Level 3 in December which should allow us to play a few holes once again. The current

The Show Goes On
There may be no golf being played in West Waterford at the moment but essential course maintenance continues and whenever we return to normal service you can be assured that the course will be in perfect condition. Behind the scenes your handicap committee continues the process of implementing the new World Handicapping System. The software update for Handicapmaster arrived last week and Lanson Kelly was on hand to install the downloads and check that everything was working as it should be. Thankfully the new system is very similar to the previous one and players will enter

World Handicapping System
The big day has finally arrived when we say goodbye to the familiar and easy accessible Congu Handicapping system and enter the unknown in the form of the World Handicapping System WHS. What used to be your handicap now becomes your handicap index and to find your playing handicap for a competition you will have to consult the course handicap table. You could possibly play on five consecutive days with a different handicap each day depending on your handicap index. Players will also have the option of playing off the tee of their choice in a competition
