Gold Coast Golf Club Notes 17th December 2018:


Christmas Greetings

May this year’s Christmas be the best Christmas ever. Warmest wishes to you and your family. We hope that the New Year brings you health and happiness and we look forward to meeting you all again on the golf course.
Have a great and wonderful Christmas and New Year!



What else is there to say that we didn’t say before. €2,601 is what was presented to the Lions Club on Sunday on your behalf. And it would have been higher only for the bad weather during the past week. Thanks to all who contributed in any way, The Gent’s Club, the Ladies Club, visitors and Dunhill GAA. Once again you have given above and beyond what is expected and it was very much appreciated by the Lions Club, sentiments expressed by the President of the Lions Club Phyllis Davis.


Best Wishes:

Best wishes to last year’s Captain Tim who had a brief stay in hospital last week. Tim expects to be back playing golf early in the New Year.


Congratulations Frank:

Frank reached the magical 80 years old last week and it was duly celebrated in Waterford last Friday night. Also a few members brought Frank for a drink and a sing song in the Gold Coast on Sunday last.

Christmas Fun Day

This annual event was held on Sunday 9th December in thankfully very good climatic conditions with a very impressive turnout, the competition of the day was a scramble which is very enjoyable format and many of the ladies were looking forward to a bit of fun!! Presentation of prizes took place in the Moorings after a sumptuous meal and a big Thank You to the kitchen and waiting staff for a very enjoyable occasion. Lady Captain then proceeded with the presentation and all prizes had a very Festive theme (i.e. the spirits of Christmas), and grateful thanks to Elaine who so generously sponsored them.

Our winter league kindly sponsored by The Moorings Bar and Restaurant over 10 holes has now finished Round 3 with the Daisies leading by a wide margin followed by the Bluebells who are being chased by the Pansies, all is in contention between the 2nd and 3rd team.
