Comeragh Oil Winter League

Congratulations to Ballyduff and Helvick who have booked their place in the semi finals.  Ballyduff had a hard earned victory over Tivoli with one match decided on the 19th hole and another on the 20th.  Helvick also had a great battle with Ballyguiry and here again the key match was decided on the 20th.  Despite the varying weather conditions all teams turned out in force with Saturday being the big day with a full timesheet.  Glenbeg vs Old Boro is yet to be decided with the result depending on the one remaining match.  In the other quarter final Kinsalebeg hold a slender 3-2 lead over Ballymacoda with just two matches remaining.  Owing to the weather it was decided to extend the deadline to Sunday 17th March and it would be greatly appreciated if the remaining matches could be played during the week.  The open draw for the semi finals will be held on Sunday 17th March or sooner if the remaining matches are completed.  Once again we say thank you to all teams for your cooperation.  As usual the matchplay has proved to be an exciting affair which is a tribute to the time and effort that goes into team selection.  Enjoy the remainder of the Comeragh Oil Winter league.


South East League

West Waterford played host to the South East League on Saturday 9th March.  Fortunately the weather was good and the course was in excellent condition for the time of year.  Youghal and Fermoy shared the spoils with 6 points each leaving the table delicately poised for the next outing in Fermoy on Sunday 24th March when West Waterford will play Youghal.  Following this, the top 2 teams will play each other to decide who goes through to the final against the winners of section B
