Comeragh Oil Winter League
We had a great turnout for the first week of our Winter league. Throughout the week we had a steady stream of members making the effort to get their respective teams to the top of the leaderboard. Well done to Shane Hanrahan who carded a magnificent 34pts for The Bears. Thank you to everyone who played so far and we are requesting all team managers to get their players out this week. Contact numbers are being sent to team managers and Eoin will keep teams updated on progress on a weekly basis. Round 1 continues for at least one more week.

Christmas Fun Scramble
A large entry from the ladies and gents turned out on Sunday afternoon in support of our scramble. The event from start to finish was conducted outdoors in brilliant sunshine. Teams of four adhering to covid restrictions were delighted with the opportunity to share 9 holes and a chat for the first time in a while. A big Thank You to Joan and Jean who organized the event and provided us with Christmas fare during the presentation. Well done ladies and hopefully it wont be too long before we have another enjoyable scramble.

Dungarvan Lions Club Appeal
Followin our scramble, captain Denis Herlihy and lady captain Ciara Donnelly presented a cheque to Diarmuid Horgan for the Dungarvan Lions Club hamper Appeal. West Waterford ladies and gents clubs are delighted to be able to contribute to the appeal which benefits the needy in Dungarvan and West Waterford.

Winter Rules Golf
As some rules may vary depending on weather and course conditions members are asked to check the notices on the board and also on the first tee. You should also check your inbox for BRS notifications with the latest details on course conditions.

Covid 19
It has come to our attention that some people are entering the clubhouse without wearing a mask. Please be advised that masks are mandatory if you are entering the building. Under no circumstances should anybody go onto the first tee without confirming their arrival either by checking in at the office or signing the attendance book. You must present a covid certificate before entering the bar. If you have any covid symptoms please do not come to the club. We have been doing a good job so far in complying with HSE guidelines and we would urge all members and visitors to keep up the effort.

We offer our condolences to Conor Sheridan and the extended family on the recent passing of his mother. May Marian Rest in Peace.
