Comeragh Oil Winter League

We had an excellent turnout for our Winter League throughout the past week with players taking advantage of the holiday period to get a few extra rounds in. The 13 hole format is proving popular and gives players the opportunity to play in the afternoon. Round 2 is at an advanced stage and we will be in a position to commence round 3 on Monday 13th January. The duration of any round is dependent on the weather and our aim is to give every team the opportunity to have all team members contributing. As can be seen from the leaderboard every team has a good chance of qualifying for the matchplay stage where the top 8 teams will progress. If you haven’t returned your card for round 2 please do so this week as this round will definitely finish on Sunday 12th January. Thank you for your support and cooperation.

Hole in One Double

Congratulations to Vincent O Mahoney who recorded his first hole in one on the 13th hole on Ney Year’s eve. Using a 5 iron on the 150 yd par 3, he landed the ball pin high and watched it role in from 18 inches. Alps Tour professional Gary Hurley also ended the year on a high as he aced the 4th hole at West Waterford on the same day. Nice way to end the decade for both lads.

Home for the Holidays

Members were delighted to meet up with John Dunphy and James Murphy who came home from Sydney to spend Christmas with their families. Both lads enjoyed a few rounds at West Waterford and by all accounts are playing as well as ever.
