Winter Rules

Owing to the weather at the weekend it was decided to introduce 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.  A domestic CSS of 35 will apply for 16 hole competitions.


Weekly 9 Hole Open Competition

Our weekly 9 hole competition continues to draw a steady entry from Monday to Friday each week. Members and visitors are welcome and the shortened course has made the competition more enjoyable.  Here is an opportunity to sharpen up your game for the upcoming Winter League and it only takes under 2 hours to play the 9 holes.

Winter League 2019  Last chance to enter.

Thank you to all who have signed up for our upcoming Winter league.  We would hope to have team lists completed by the weekend.  The response to date has been most encouraging and we could do with a few more entries before we start the formation of teams.  If you haven’t already done so, please contact Pat on 0876611276 or Jimmy on 0857321907 immediately.  Alternatively you can ring the office on 058 43216 where Gillian will be glad to record your entry.  All going well the first qualifying round will commence on Monday 19th November.  If any member has a bit of spare time we would welcome some help especially with sorting cards on Saturdays and Sundays during the league.


Past Captains and Presidents Dinner Friday 16th November

This annual event is scheduled for Friday 16th November.  A 13 hole singles stableford competition will be held at 1.30, and this will be followed by dinner in the clubhouse.  Committee members are also welcome to attend, and complimentary tickets will be issued to all team managers this week.  All past captains and presidents are requested to contact the office 058 43216 to confirm their attendance.  We appreciate that some may not be available on the night and we would greatly appreciate if you could let us know if this is the case.


Bunkers and Pitch Marks

It has taken a lot of time and money but the renovation work on the bunkers is now complete.  Visitors continue to compliment us on the magnificent work and the excellent condition of our bunkers.  We ask members and visitors to rake bunkers properly (don’t forget the footprints), and even if you’re not in it and it needs attention please feel free to rake it.  Like our bunkers, our greens are maintained in excellent condition.  Unfortunately some members are not repairing pitch marks.  We earnestly request you to repair your pitch marks and if you see another pitch mark repair it too.  We are fortunate to have a course staff and volunteers who put a lot of time and effort into maintaining the course to the highest standards.  Please do your bit to show your appreciation of their efforts.


Men’s Club AGM

The annual general meeting of West Waterford Men’s club will be held in the clubhouse on Thursday 29th November at 8p.m.
