Comeragh Oil Winter League Update.

Round 3 came to a conclusion on Sunday following two weeks of intense competition as all twelve teams battle for a place in the top 8 and progression to the matchplay stage.  Ballymacoda moved up four places to take top spot from Ballyguiry who  are currently just three points ahead of Kinsalebeg.  Glenbeg took another joint leap to claim fourth position but are closely pursued by Tivoli, Helvick, Ballyduff and Mount Odell.  The bottom four teams have a bit to do but with two more qualifying rounds to go any of them could sneak into the top eight.  Round 4 begins on Monday 21st January and will be played over 13 holes.  You can play any day from Monday to Sunday inclusive subject to booking your tee time.

To date we have had a great spread of weekly prizewinners and the domestic handicap system helps keep the serial winners under control.  The domestic handicap sheet is posted on the men’s notice board.  Again we thank you for your continued support and remember, you don’t have to be in the winter league to play in the weekly competitions.


Hole in One.

Congratulations to Phil Kinsella who recorded the first ace of 2019 on the 9th hole on Sunday morning.  Playing in his regular fourball with Eddie, John C, and Larry, Phil used a 5 wood on the 165 yards par 3 to record his third career hole in one.
