Comeragh Oil Winter League –  Can Kinsalebeg stay on Top

Round 5 got off to a flying start last week.  The weather for the most part was perfect for golf and we had a steady stream of players each day.  With all teams still in contention for a top 8 playoff spot the competition is intense as the friendly fourballs scramble for an advantage for their respective teams.  The 16 hole competition is proving popular with some exceptional scores being returned.  Matchplay of course is a different ball game and it will be interesting to see how the high scorers perform in the head to head contest.  Hopefully the good weather will continue and we will be in a position to announce the top 8 pairings on Sunday evening next.

The fifth and final qualifying round continues all this week and we encourage everyone to get out there and make the extra effort for your team.  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.


Annual Club Fundraising Classic at West Waterford

Our annual classic this year will run from Saturday 13th April to Sunday 21st April inclusive.  As usual there are many magnificent prizes on offer.  Keep an eye out for full details in the coming weeks.


South East League

The draw for this year’s South East league was made at Youghal GC on Tuesday 12th February.  West Waterford is drawn in Group A together with Fermoy and Youghal.  Youghal is the venue for our first outing when we play Fermoy on Saturday 2nd March.  On Sunday March 24th we will play against Youghal in Fermoy.  West Waterford will host the league on Saturday March 9th when Youghal will play Fermoy.  The top 2 teams in this group will play each other in a play-off with the winners going on to play the winners in Group B in the final.  Members interested in being on the panel should put their names on the relevant sheet posted on the hallway notice board.


New Wednesday Competition for Seniors.  Wednesday 13th February

This new competition got underway on Wednesday last and the ladies and gents present were delighted with the 3 person scramble. We would love to see a few extra coming along and we can guarantee that you will enjoy the experience. 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.


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.



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.
