Happy New Year

May this year bring new happiness, new goals, new achievements and a lot of new inspirations on your life. Wishing you a year loaded with happiness and good health. AS we welcome in the new rules in golf may these new rules help you to enjoy the game better.

John White Carpentry Winter League

With close on 1000 games played so far in the league and with 43 players having now completed their 10 games the league is starting to take shape. Dunhill are still the ones to catch as they lead with 418 pts, Copper Coast are still in 2nd for the 3rd spot, Dungarvan and Abbeyside are battling it out for the 5th spot at the moment but both of them will have to keep an eye on Deise as they always come with a late run.

Dunhill 418

Copper Coast 413

Tourneena 403

Ballinacourty 403

Dungarvan 397

Abbeyside 385

Deise 388.

Fixtures for 2019:

Derek Power will be starting to put the calendar of events together over the next few weeks and hopefully it will be ready for publication by the end of the month.

New Rules to come into force on 1st January 2019:

Listed below are the changes that will come into effect on 1st January. Also there could be some new local rules as well.

  1. Drop from knee height (NOT shoulder height)
  2. Measure the area to drop in with the longest club in your bag (except a putter)
  3. Drop in and play from the relief area
  4. When dropping back-on-the-line, your ball cannot be played from nearer the hole than your chosen reference point
  5. Time to search – 3 minutes (NOT 5 minutes)
  6. If you accidentally move your ball when searching for it, replace it without penalty
  7. No penalty for a double hit – it only counts as one stroke
  8. No penalty if your ball hits you or your equipment accidentally after a stroke
  9. No penalty if your ball strikes the flagstick when you have chosen to leave it in the hole
  10. Spike mark and other shoe damage on the putting green can be repaired
  11. Ball accidentally moved on putting green – no penalty and replace
  12. Ball marked, lifted and replaced on putting green is moved by wind to another position –replace ball on the original spot
  13. Penalty areas replace water hazards, and you can move loose impediments, ground your club and take practice swings in penalty areas without penalty, just as you can on the fairway or in the rough
  14. You can’t take relief from a penalty area unless you are at least 95% certain your ball is in the penalty area
  15. In bunkers you can move loose impediments
  16. In bunkers you cannot touch the sand with your club in the area right in front of or right behind your ball, during your backswing or in taking practice swings
  17. Free relief is allowed if your ball is embedded on the fairway or in the rough (but “embedded” means that part of your ball is below the level of the ground)
  18. Unplayable ball in bunker – extra option to drop outside the bunker for 2 penalty strokes
  19. You cannot have your caddie or your partner standing behind you once you begin taking your stance
  20. Pace of Play – it is recommended that you take no longer than 40 seconds to make a stroke (and usually you should be able to play more quickly than that) and Ready Golf in stroke play is encouraged

Winter League sponsored by The Moorings Bar & Restaurant

Our winter league kindly sponsored by The Moorings Bar and Restaurant over 10 holes has now finished Round 4 with the Daisies still in the lead with an ever expanding margin followed by the Bluebells who are being chased by the Pansies. However, as we know with team events things can change dramatically and this was very evident after  Rd 4 with a big shake-up amongst the remaining groups. With the New Year approaching and hopefully some drier weather, it’s all to play for!! Well done to the team managers who are very busy contacting and encouraging their members – remember a point is awarded for each round played even when your score is not counting!!

Round 5 starts on Monday 7th JANUARY and runs for 2 weeks, weather permitting.
