Comeragh Oil Winter League

As round 1 draws to a close the scores are hotting up as team jockey for a place in the top 8 on the leader board. Most players have now played and we earnestly request the remainder to get their cards in by next weekend. The weather during the past week has once again interrupted the progress of the league and it has been decided to extend round one for another week.   Despite the weather, the course is in excellent condition and all bunkers are in play.  Round 1 results will be published on our website on Sunday evening 16th December.  So the message to team captains is to contact your team members and get them out for round one.  The league will take a break over the Christmas holidays and will resume with round 2 commencing on Wednesday 26th December.


Dungarvan Lions Club Hamper Appeal

Due to the prevailing weather conditions we are extending this fundraiser for one more week. This format is a 13 hole singles stableford competition open to ladies and gents.  Visitors are most welcome.  For those unable to play, a donations box is available at the office.  We earnestly request your support for this worthy cause.  All donations will benefit the needy in our community.


Captain and Lady Captain’s Christmas Get Together

It was a question of West Waterford Aglow on Saturday night last with a great turnout for our joint captains Christmas Get Together.  The West Waterford choir was assembled especially for the occasion and wooed the audience with a beautiful selection of Christmas carols.  Golf professionals Seamus Power and Matthew Ryan were on hand to meet the crowd and share stories of their exploits during 2018.  The selection of sandwiches and cocktail sausages went down a treat and were followed by Bridget’s special homemade mince pies and cream.  Well done to captain Tom and lady captain Jean and all the elves for their efforts in organizing a truly enjoyable night of music song and chat in a warm and friendly atmosphere.


New Year’s Eve Anniversary Party.

Plans are underway for our next party night on New Year’s eve 24th December.  As our 25th anniversary year draws to a close why not come along and celebrate our success in the friendly environs of West Waterford golf club.  Fancy dress is optional and the night will include a hot buffet meal, music song and dance.  Early booking is advisable.


Winter Rules

The current weather conditions have led to the introduction of Winter Rules golf. This means you can mark, lift, clean and place your ball on the fairway and in the rough.  For the moment our weekend men’s competition will be played over 16 holes.  Holes No.2 and No.3 are currently out of play for men’s competitions.  A domestic CSS of 35 will apply for 16 hole competitions.


Rules of Golf

Members are reminded that a number of changes to the Rules of Golf come into effect on January 1st 2019. A summary of the new rules is posted on the notice board and booklets on the changes are available at the sign-in desk.  Dont wait till the last minute, check out the changes now.


One Governing Body

The GUI and ILGU have published a proposal for a single governing body for golf in Ireland. Clubs will vote on this proposal in January 2019.  Members can familiarize themselves with this proposal by logging on to Golfnet and clicking on the One Governing Body website.  A selection of relevant podcasts is now available on this website.
