Golf Clubs and the Coronavirus

All clubs have now received notification regarding the Coronavirus outbreak and guidelines to be followed in line with the HSE recomendations. It’s in everybody’s interest to comply with those guidelines both on and off the course. By now most of us are familiar with the do’s and dont’s. As an extra safety measure we suggest that the flagstick not be removed during a round. Members might bring their own pen or pencil to use for signing in and whenever possible bring the exact amount in change for your entry fee. Please use the sanitizers provided in the locker rooms and at the sign-in desk and wash your hands before and after play. You have plenty of room on the course to keep your distance and a nod or a thank you should replace the handshake on completion of your round. The more we do to protect ourselves and each other the sooner we can return to our normal routine. We thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Upcoming Events

All things being equal we would hope to start our midweek competitions in early April. The Tuesday Treats is always popular with members and visitors alike, and plans are well advanced for an Open 9 hole Qualifier each Wednesday. We also hope to return to the 18 hole weekend club competitions shortly. Watch this space for starting dates.

Comeragh Oil Winter League – Quarter Finals

The quarter finals are underway but due to weather conditions and the Coronavirus very few matches have been completed to date. The forecasters are predicting high pressure from Wednesday next so hopefully we will make better progress with the matches this week. Ideally we would like to complete the quarter finals by Sunday 22nd March but it may be necessary to extend the date for an extra week. We would ask all those concerned to make an extra effort to complete their matches at the earliest possible date to enable us to move on to the semi finals and final. The date for our Sunshine Classic is fast approaching and the aim is to at least have the Winter League semi finals completed before the Classic begins. Your cooperation would be greatly appreciated. The quarter final pairings are published at the end of this week’s notes and are also available on our website by simply scrolling down on the home page.

Care of the Greens

Unfortunately a number of people are not repairing pitch marks on the greens. A lot of time and effort has gone into getting our greens to the high standard our members and visitors have come to expect at West Waterford. So please repair your pitch marks and even if you can’t find your own please fix another one. Your cooperation would be greatly appreciated.

Summertime is Coming.

Despite the current doom and gloom we should take heart from the fact that the daffodils are springing up all round and we already have a big stretch in the evenings. The forecasters are predicting high pressure from Wednesday next. Summertime begins on March 29th. So take heart and cheer up in the news that better times are fast approaching.
