Comeragh Oil Winter League 2020

Our Winter League is up and running and despite mixed weather conditions early in the week the weekend weather was ideal for winter golf. Team members turned up in force and the high scoring reflected the excellent condition of the course. The 13 hole competition was widely accepted as a good idea with the average time for a round being 2.5 hours. We still have a number of players to complete round 1 so we are extending this round for another week to give everyone a chance to play. For your convenience an A-Z list of team members is posted on the notice board in the hallway. So the message is clear, check your team, check your card, check your time, and come out and support your team and your club. Full details are posted in the hallway. Members not playing in the Winter League are welcome to play in the weekly competitions and are eligible for the weekly prizes.

Weekly Open 9 Hole Competition

For the next number of weeks we are running a weekly 9 hole competition over the front 9. Re-entry is allowed with your best card counting. With the evenings getting shorter here is an ideal opportunity to get a few holes in and stay in shape during the winter months. All handicap levels welcome.

South East League

Congratulations to club member Alan Darcy who won first prize at the West Waterford outing on Sunday. A big thank you to everyone who supported the event and we hope you enjoyed your visit. The alliance moves to Dungarvan on Sunday next November 24th.

Autumnal Images at West Waterford

As the year moves on we have gone from shades of green to shades of brown as the leaves change colour. A beautiful setting of course but many have asked where all the leaves have gone. They haven’t gone but have been collected by our loyal group of course volunteers who spent endless hours raking and collecting the fallen leaves to enable golfers find their golf balls. Bunkers have been raked and fairways cut using light and heavy machinery in an effort to make the golfing experience at West Waterford extra special. No need to mention names here except to thank the volunteers and the course staff who take pride in their work. Seeing is believing, so why not come along and enjoy the golf, the scenery and the autumnal images which are unique to West Waterford.

Winter Rules

Please note that all competitions are now played under Winter Rules

Lift clean and place on fairway and rough within 6 inches. The good news is that all our bunkers are in play unless otherwise stated in local rules. Please keep an eye on the notice board for additional rules and the number of holes being played in different competitions.
