Comeragh Oil Winter League – Kinsalebeg make their move.

Kinsalebeg reclaimed the top spot after the conclusion of round 4 on Sunday last.  Ray Rochford and Matt Olden led the scoring with 31 and 30 points respectively while Liam Hansbury and Bertie Hallahan followed up with 29 and 28 points for a magnificent team total of 118 points.  Ballyguiry and Ballymacoda are tied for second place on 477 points while the evergreen Jimmy Murphy has his Glenbeg team lying comfortably in fourth position.  Mount Odell currently occupy the 8th and final qualifying spot but Carriglea, Old Boro and Old Parish could change all that in round 5.  It all makes for a nailbiting fifth and final qualifying round with all 12 teams still in contention.  Round 5 will be played over 16 holes bringing the dreaded index one 14th hole back into play.  Round 5 gets underway on Monday 11th February and with a settled look to the weather we anticipate a very busy week at West Waterford.  Make sure to book your tee times early in the week.  Dont forget it’s 16 holes for round 5.  Please remember to put your team name on the scorecard as this helps enormously when we are sorting the cards on Sunday evening.  The league has been a huge success to date so keep up the good work.  Thanks to all for your support and cooperation throughout the league.


Charity Day at West Waterford Golf Club.

On Tuesday 26th February West Waterford will host the annual Margaret Rochford and Tom Fitzgibbon memorial day.  Last year a sum of €885 was raised for the Mercy Hospital foundation.  There will be a shotgun start at 1.30 and entry fee includes golf and dinner.  For full entry details please contact Ray Rochford on 0872330054.


South East League

Preparations are underway for the 2019 South East league. We are hoping to have the draw and pairings completed by the weekend. The league gives participating clubs the opportunity to try out players for the Jimmy Bruen and Pierce Purcell shields.  West Waterford are the current holders of the South East league trophy and team manager Stephen Spillane will be anxious to build on last year’s success.  With a view to getting new players involved a panel sheet is posted on the club notice board and eligible players are invited to put their names on the list.  It looks as though seven clubs will participate this year and we hope to have the league underway early in March.


New Rules

Members are gradually coming to terms with the new rules and are putting them into practise.  I haven’t seen too many leaving the flag in while putting but the ready play rule is definitely speeding up the time for a round.  It will take time and patience but we will stick to the task and it will become second nature in a short time.


New Wednesday Competition for Seniors.  Wednesday 13th February

Commencing on Wednesday 13th February, and weekly thereafter, the Midweek Medley is a 9 hole seniors competition for ladies and gents.  The emphasis is on enjoyment and a bit of banter followed by a cup of tea/coffee and a chat.  Be there at 11 am. for draw for playing partners and 11.30 start.


Al Eile Wednesday Open Singles

It’s still a few weeks down the line but we are looking forward to the popular Wednesday Opens at West Waterford.  Watch this space for updates.
