Comeragh Oil Winter League – Kinsalebeg top the Table

Top scorer Micheal Gee (8) with 39 points, Liam Hansbury and Matt Holden with 35 points apiece and the evergreen Ray Rochford with 33, combined to put Kinsalebeg in top spot at the conclusion of round 1 in the Comeragh Oil Winter league on Sunday last.  Andy Hickey (7) and Colin Houlihan (9) each had 36 points to place Ballymacoda in second spot just 3 points behind the leaders.  Stephen Spillane was on form when he shot 37 points to see Tivoli complete the top three just 5 points off the top.  A mere 4 points seperates the remaining five teams in the top8. Once again the team selectors have been vindicated and even at this early stage the league looks like being another battle to the end with all  teams in contention for the playoff spots.  Get the full results on our website www.westwaterfordgolf.com.  We are taking a short break over the Christmas period and round 2 will resume on Wednesday 26th December.  We will of course run a 16 hole club competition this week.

Winter Rules

The current weather conditions have led to the introduction of 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.  Holes No.2 and No.3 are currently out of play for men’s competitions.  A domestic CSS of 35 will apply for 16 hole competitions.
