    Well Golfers. Ye must be getting sick of the sight each other by now with the outings so close to each other.

    Our next adventure brings us to West Waterford Golf Club in sunny Dungarvan Co. Waterford. This is another honest members club which is always presented in immaculate condition. Another treat for ye all to enjoy.

    Teamer invites already gone out. Lots of no response so far but hopefully a strong take up after this post.

    €35.00 for this one golfers. Revolut the usual preferred payment.

    That's it for now. I will post LD and NP details closer to the date.

    See ye soon.

    BREAK 80.

    Looking forward to this one Captain. Was on my list for last year. One of Kevin Markham's top 10 hidden gems in Ireland, so can't wait to give it a try.

    Also will be nice to see the course thats produced and was recently saved thanks to Seamus Power.

    Looking forward to it.

    Jesus Kiith you are showing the Cork lads up with the mileage your doing Raging Ill be missing this one as it was one I was looking forward too and with it been tight at the top only leaves Captains left!

    I played there less than 2 weeks ago and can report that the course is in good condition. The trees have really matured over the years and it will provide a good test. Hitting a lot of fairways will be key to returning a good score.

    Won’t make this one unfortunately. I’ve got a lot on my plate at the moment and not enough hours in the day!

    Only 8 players down for it, lots of jug points up for grabs

    Baby stuff can wait, too many points up for grabs to be missing this. Told my wife i was in charge and could do what i want.

    Can i get an early tee time though? Don't have permission to be gone for that long 🤣

  • Registered Users Posts: 217 ✭✭Snackbox20

    Hope all goes well Kiith, congratulations to you both

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,512 ✭✭✭OffalyMedic

    Gutted to be missing this one but unfortunately I'm working and cant get it off. See you all in Enniscrone

  • Registered Users Posts: 8,251 ✭✭✭spacecoyote

    Cheers Captain. Given you're a past member, how about a quick course guide. Not much on the club website

  • Registered Users Posts: 311 ✭✭Break80

    It's been years but here is a hackers guide with places I've been anyone resembling a golfer shouldn't.

    1st, Straightforward Par 5 with trees left and right in your landing zone. 2ND shot needs to be straight. DON'T be above the pin with your 3rd.

    2nd. Slight dogleg left, Driver too big. Too much left in trees. Too much right in chunky rough.

    3rd. Need to Finish on left of fairway to open up the green past a high tree. Problem is a lot of trees waiting to gobble up your ball if you are too left or get your angles wrong. Too right and you have more trees and a stream plus the afore mentioned tree to get over.

    4th. Par 3 with a pond ready and waiting.

    5th. Par 5 needing a slight fade to avoid bunkers with your drive. 2nd if straight opens up a big green.

    6th. Need to get to the end of treeline on left to open up the green for a long 2nd shot.

    7th. Straight long drive, flick of a wedge short putt. Easy peessy HAH.

    8th. Same as 7 HAH HAH.

    9th. Long Long par 3. OB right by clubhouse. If you ball is even looking towards the clubhouse RELOAD.


    10th. Parallel to the 1st with all the mentioned trees but a par 4 this time I think.

    11th. Par 3 over a ditch to a narrow green with a small pond in front of the green. Lads this little pond loves golf balls.

    12th. Par 5 I think. Need to carry 1st ditch and land short of 2nd ditch. Stay on right of fairway or you will be blocked out for 2nd but you have a longer hit in.

    13th. Par 3 with a steep hill to the putting surface. You need to be below the pin at all times. If the pin is at the front of the green and the steep hill to the green. YOU ARE F@@@ED. You will understand when I said to be below the pin when you see the green.


    15th. A stream and ditch is waiting for any nervous drive. They can be carried if you give it holly. Too much holly and a bit right there is another hungry pond waiting for your drive.

    16th. Par 5 needing 3 good straight hits through a tree lined fairway.

    17th. Blind 2nd shot to a green in a hollow. Stay high on the fairway.

    18th. Long par 4 needing a drive to flirt with a big tree on the left for position A for your 2nd. Anything left will leave you 200 plus from chunky rough.

    Did I mention 12 to 15 has the added bonus of a river that seem to have a magnetic effect on golf balls as all 4 greens are close and seem to repel the ball towards it. Uncanny to be honest.

    Greens were always fast and true.

    Hope ye enjoy Lads.

    PS. Apoligies to any West Waterford members for my hackers guide to what is a really great day out.

    Best of luck tomorrow lads really gutted I'm missing this! Had a good lesson Tuesday evening and was only making stupid mistakes as usual! So my game is slowly coming back to pre-covid days a long with my confidence. Played my quarter finals match play match tonight against a 1 handicapper! Lost it on 16. Delighted to last that long to be honest as I was a bit defeated before it started! But got good experience. He started with 12 straight pars! Mad for a game now and going on holidays tomorrow for a week typical. Well enjoy and see you'd all at Captain's

    Well done PostPunk, a clear winner. Nice 2s pot for GolfNut also.

    Apols to Space and Concerned for the utter garbage golf by me today, pretty much nothing was anywhere close to normal.

    Such is life, just the one 3putt and no lost balls for a scuttery score. Being down ~60 rounds a year since Covid is really impacting.

    My playing partners caught my golf shortcomings which was a shame because another sausage for Space and he would have had a good jump up the table by eliminating those putts left short. Concerned was neat and putted real well on the back.

    Roll on Enniscrone for another chance to hopefully play a few decent shots before the irons get stashed away till next year.
