Winter Programme
Weekly competitions at West Waterford now consist of a weekly ongoing 9 hole competition from Monday to Friday inclusive. Play will be stableford off the white markers and you must use the small 18 hole scorecard taking your shots as they fall on the 18 hole card. No Yellow Cards please. Our weekend competition will be 16 hole stableford off the white markers. A Domestic penalty points system will apply to all winter rules competitions. Penalty points are based on the cumulative value of a players winnings. All this means extra work for your committee and we would appreciate your full cooperation. Enjoy your winter golf.

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). Of course you can also use the Golf Ireland App. 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.
