Rule for the Week:-              Play your ball as it lies

Always play your ball as it lies, wherever it comes to rest, unless the Rules allow you to do otherwise.   Most common exemptions include the effect of ‘loose impediments’ – you can remove leaves, loose twigs, litter – or ‘obstructions’, such as man-made paths, drainage, sprinklers, from which you will receive free relief and be able to drop your ball within one club length at the nearest point of relief, no nearer the hole. (Rule 13-1)

RULE OF THE WEEK          Green rulings

Once you have reached the green, there are a couple of key Rules of which you need to be aware. Once the ball comes to rest on the putting surface you may mark it with a coin, or disk, lift and clean it but remember to replace in the exact spot. You may repair any pitch-marks – not just yours – other damage such as spike marks attached to the green but not on your line of putt, a playing partner’s putt, or an extension of it, before the completion of the hole. You can have the flagstick either attended at all times but the ball must not strike it. (Rule 17) (Covid 19 has created a situation where the flagstick must remain in place and not be touched, the rest of this ruling remains as stated)

Goldcoast Golf Club Notes 28th June 2020

GOLDCOAST GOLF NOTES 28th JUNE 2020

Hi everyone and welcome.  From today Monday we will be getting back to things being more normal for our golfers.  At the Gold Coast we will have competitions now every Tuesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  Anybody still needing a handicap just put your name down to play and any member going out will mark your card.  For those new members going out for the first time with their new handicap enjoy the experience.  There will be a committee meeting on Tuesday evening so some fine tuning will be done then relating to planning for the summer and hopefully we will be in a position to keep you informed here in the notes as things progress.

Below is a brief synopsis of what is allowed for Golf Clubs as part of Phase Three easings of Covid 19:

 

PHASE 3 COMMENCING ON JUNE 29th IN REPUBLIC OF IRELAND

*Four-balls allowed at 10 minute intervals

*Competition golf & visitors permitted

*Restaurants and Bars operating as Restaurants may open under strict guidelines

*Travel restrictions lifted

 

Golf ‘s Protocol, in Phase 3, has been relaxed considerably to permit clubs to include four-balls on their timesheets at 10-minute intervals. Competitions are now permitted, both closed and open with visitors allowed to pay green fees and compete in open competitions.

 

As we enter Phase 3 of the phased re-introduction of golf, there remains a major responsibility on golf clubs and golfers to ensure that our sport is conducted in a safe and responsible manner.

Full adherence to the provisions of this Protocol is essential. Golf was in the very privileged position to have been allowed to resume in Phase 1 and this return was based on the sport being able to demonstrate to government that it can take place in a safe, socially distant manner.

The high level of compliance shown thus far is a credit to the sport, but these efforts must be redoubled as we begin competitions and welcome visitors for the first time in several months.

To ensure golf is played safely, golfers must adhere to the Protocols published by the GUI and ILGU.
These guidelines are available for viewing on www.golfnet.ie

 

GENTS FIXTURES

Tues. 30th June Open Gents & Ladies 18H Singles S/F,

Fri. 3rd July Open Gents 18H Singles S/F

Sat. 4th Club Comp, Open Gents 18H Singles S/F

Sun. 5th Club Comp, Open Gents 18H Singles S/F

 

NEW MEMBERS WELCOME

We are delighted to welcome so many new members to the club just now. Committee and Club Members will be making themselves available over the next few weeks to accompany new members on the course.  Helping with getting handicaps organised, going through the basic rules and the requirements on the course. Members at the Gold Coast will do everything they can to make you welcome so feel free to put your name down anytime with anyone and enjoy the camaraderie, the game, and the stunning scenery.

Members old and new are reminded to check out the notice board adjacent to the first tee regarding local rules, dress codes etc.  On Tuesday and Wednesday evening (5pm-7pm) are members evening where members will be able to play with some of the new members to facilitate getting handicaps. Please book your time on the BRS system. We will be doing this for the next few weeks.

 

RULE FOR THE WEEK  Avoid playing the wrong ball

Sounds blindingly obvious but unless you mark your ball before you start, there is a danger – with so many golf balls similarly stamped – you may mistake yours for another player’s.   Playing the wrong ball in match-play could mean loss of hole in singles and will be a two-stroke penalty in stroke-play. To avoid such a penalty, then get marking your ball more clearly with distinctive personalised symbols.    But if you’re unsure the ball – in the rough, for example – is yours, notify you’re playing partners, mark it carefully with a tee peg, lift but do not clean it (only to identify it) and replace in the identical spot you’re within your rights. (Rule 15-1)

 

RECIPROCAL GREENFEE ARRANGEMENT WITH DUNGARVAN AND WEST WATERFORD GOLF CLUBS

Just a note to remind members that for many years now, all three golf clubs in Dungarvan have operated a reciprocal arrangement where Monday to Friday, members of Gold coast Golf Club can play Dungarvan or West Waterford (or vice versa) for a reduced green fee of €15 now.

Goldcoast Golf Club Notes 14th June 2020

GOLDCOAST GOLF CLUB NOTES 14TH JUNE 2020

Another great week for golf at the Gold Coast Golf Club.   Lots of players getting back into the “swing” of things.  Fair play to the new members and existing members for getting together on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings for getting handicaps organised.  We hope new members are enjoying the game and experience at the Gold Coast GC.  A special mention for those involved in the maintenance and restoration of the bunkers, they are nearly finished and well done to everyone for helping out.  We are all, existing and new, members looking forward to the next phase of Covid 19 restrictions being lifted and hopefully competitions being restored.    If you get to play this week ENJOY.

 

NEW MEMBERS WELCOME

We are delighted to welcome so many new members to the club just now. Committee and Club Members will be making themselves available over the next few weeks to accompany new members on the course.  Helping with getting handicaps organised, going through the basic rules and the requirements on the course.

RULE OF THE WEEK:-  Play within the parameters of the tee

The first tee shot of a round is always daunting, even for seasoned golfers, so make sure you tee up between and behind the front of the appropriate markers – usually white for medal tees, yellow for men, red for ladies – and within two club lengths. With all the swing thoughts that go through the average player’s head, it can be easy to forget about these basic parameters. Penalty for teeing up the ball outside of them (you may take your stance outside if you prefer) is two shots in strokeplay. (Rule 11)

Goldcoast Golf Club Notes 23rd March ’20

Gold Coast Golf Club Notes 23rd March 2020

 

CORONAVIRUS COVID-19

The Golfing Union of Ireland, Irish Ladies Golf Union and the Confederation of Golf in Ireland ask that all golf clubs note, act upon and continually monitor the advice and guidance issued by the Health Service Executive (Republic of Ireland) and the National Health Service (Northern Ireland) in relation to the current coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. For you and the protection of others we ask for cooperation in adhering to HSE Guidelines, social distancing advice and other precautionary measures we have taken. In the interest of safety for our staff, members and visitors our first preference from now on is that debit card/contactless or credit card payment is used for competition fees, green fees and all other transactions. Alternatively, members are requested to put the right amount of cash in an envelope and write their name, date and fee on the front of it and post into a dedicated box in the Kiosk. Going forward we have decided to restructure the timesheets into 10 min intervals where possible or insert buffers times as required. It may also be necessary to implement a temporary local rule permitting computer score return only for singles competitions thereby eliminating the use of scorecards. We will act upon and continually monitor the advice and guidance issued by the Health Service Executive (Republic of Ireland). These are unprecedented and anxious times for everyone. It is important that we all work together, following the advice of experts, in controlling the spread of COVID-19 infection. Thank you for your co-operation, stay safe. HSE: www.hse.ie

 

GOLFERS INSURANCE

One of the most important things any golfer should possess is insurance.
