Seamus Power
Having missed the cut at the Heuston Open last weekend Seamus will be hoping for a return to his recent good run of form when he plays in the RSM Classic at Sea Island Georgia this week Thursday 18 – Sun 21st November. With many of the top ranked players in the field Seamus will be aiming for his second PGA Tour victory or at least a large share of the 7.2 million dollar prize fund. Seamus is looking forward to a well deserved break following this weeks event. Best of luck Seamus.

Inactive Season Winter rules Golf
The mens committee at West Waterford have agreed to introduce winter rules with effect from Monday October 18th. This means that scores in club competitions at West Waterford are not eligible for handicap purposes until further notice. We are also requesting members not to return scores on the Golf Ireland app for casual golf played in the club during the inactive season. Members playing at an away course may qualify for handicap adjustment based on the current rules on the particular course. Members can check their handicap index from the list on our notice board and calculate their playing handicap (95% of course handicap). A list of gents handicap indices is available at the sign-in desk. Of course you can also use the Golf Ireland App to check your handicap. Players are reminded to check their handicap index regularly for any changes, bearing in mind that your handicap is your responsibility. We would appreciate your cooperation in complying with the current rules of play and should you have any queries just mark your card as usual and please write (check my Index) on your card.
Winter rules mean that you can mark, lift, clean and place your ball on the fairway and in the rough. Bunkers are in play unless otherwise specified.

Covid 19
Despite the best efforts of the majority of the population, Covid numbers are still rising. Golf clubs have been to the fore in complying with covid-19 regulations. We would ask all our members to keep up the effort. Wash and sanitize your hands, wear a mask when entering the building and maintain social distancing at all times. If you have cold or flu symptoms please stay away and get the matter checked. Remember it’s in our hands to protect ourselves and others. Thank you for your continued cooperation.

We offer our condolences to Ray Rochford and family on the passing of his mother Maureen in her 100th year. Ar dheis Dé go raibh sí.
