Comeragh Oil Winter League – Round 3 underway
A combination of heavy rain and severe frost hampered the first week of round 3. Fortunately a few opportunist members managed to get a round in and with a kinder forecast for the coming week we are hoping to get the majority of teams back in action. After 2 rounds Team L have moved into a 6 point lead in top spot while team D moved out of the relegation zone to claim 7th spot. Team J move into the relegation zone having held 8th position after round 1. Clear proof as if it were needed that a lot can change during one round. With the top 8 teams to qualify for the playoffs the ‘cut’ currently stands at 217 pts. It’s encouraging to see that quite a number of players keep coming back in an effort to improve their scores and keep their respective teams in a qualifying position. As it stands all 12 teams are still in the hunt and it’s just a matter of getting the full team contributing to the team effort. Round 3 continues on Monday 20th January and will run until Sunday 26th January. At the end of each week the team scores will be checked and a decision taken as to the extension of any round. Should weather conditions improve dramatically (unlikely), then we will hope to complete rounds over a shorter period. In the meantime remember you can play any day from Monday to the following Sunday with your best score counting. Players not in the league are always welcome to play in the weekly competition.
Inter Club Competitions
It’s that time of year when we start making preparations for the upcoming GUI inter club competitions. With a view to this we are currently in the process of appointing team managers for the respective teams. A meeting regarding the South East League will take place shortly at Youghal golf club.
