Goldcoast Golf Club Notes 25th February 2024


Our Winter League kindly sponsored by John White Carpentry has now reached the final furlong with the Nire/Touraneena pipping Dunhill to claim the league section.  But now the fight begins to see who will be crowned Winner League winners for 2024 with six teams contesting this spot once again.  The Winter League was a huge success with a large number of rounds being played in spite of challenging weather conditions over the winter months but as always the course held up for us to enjoy our golf. We want to thank the green keeping staff for keeping the course in such great condition.  Thank you to Irene and Brian for updating the scores each week, to the team Captains for all their hard work and to each member who took part in the league.  It’s the members that make the Goldcoast the fantastic place it is. The line up for the Quarter finals next Sunday 3rd March is as follows.  On the tee box at 10am are Dungarvan v Ballinacourty, followed at 11.30a.m. by Abbeyside V’s Stradbally.  The winners of the Quarter finals will meet Nire/Touraneena and Dunhill in the semi-finals scheduled to take place the following Sunday March 10th.  Best of luck to all involved.



The club wish to offer our condolences to Tony Fitzgerald and family on the sad passing of his mother Bridget which occurred during the week. May God have mercy on her gentle soul.



Further updates on Handicap changes as from the 1st April 2024 or when summer rules begin.  Course Handicap is the number of shots the golfer receives for the tee set they are going to play. Currently in Ireland, England and Wales this value is calculated to a decimal and then rounded for the golfer, which is the value they use when playing golf for handicap purposes (both general play and competition golf).

As of April 2024, for competition purposes, the calculated and “unrounded” Course Handicap will be carried through to the Playing Handicap™ calculation using machine precision*. For General Play scores, the golfer will continue to use the calculated and “rounded” Course Handicap. The Playing Handicap will be rounded to a whole number at the end of the calculation.
