CAPTAINS WEEKEND 3rd, 4th and 5th JUNE 2022

What a great weekend we had here at the Gold Coast well done to all involved in making it such a great success to both Captains, to all the players from the gents and ladies clubs, the hotel for the beautiful food and our wonderful kiosk and ground keeping staff who keep the show on the road day in day out and most of all too our two popular winners namely John Hallinan and Leanne Bumster well done on your wins.

 

JUVENILE CLINIC A BIG SUCCESS

A visit to the Gold Coast Golf Club last week by Gold Ireland’s Jennifer Hickey (Development & Club Support Officer-Munster) proved a great success. Organised by President Frank Mulvihill, eleven adult Leaders participated in the course aimed at the development of Juvenile golfers at the club. The aim – that each juvenile golfer be facilitated to reach their potential in a friendly and enjoyable surrounding.

The course was practical and all those in attendance put their pitching wedges and putters into action in a series of warm-up exercises, chipping skills and putting games. It is fair to say there were some very competitive Leaders present on the night!

When working with juveniles Safety is a priority and Jennifer demonstrated some fail-proof methods that should form the basis of all activities. The clinic comprised 6 main topics: 1. Equipment zones. 2. Warm Up Games. 3. Fundamental Movement Skills (FMS). 4. Safety. 5. Chipping exercises, and 6. Putting exercises. Feedback from the session was very positive with participants admitting they had found it very enjoyable and each had lots of fun. The leaders will now apply what they learned at the clinic with the Juvenile golfers at the Gold Coast.

CAPTAINS PRIZE 2022

Our two captains Seamus and Isobel held their competitions this weekend.  In some beautiful weather on Friday some great scores were recorded and the competition continued on Saturday when the weather was not so kind but the scoring was once again very high.  Our final took place on Sunday morning, on a very overcast day 42 players took to the course with a shot gun start. There was great scoring once again but the man from Tooraneena completed a great final round to claim his first ever Captain’s prize, a great achievement for our very popular winner John Hallinan. We then retired to the Gold Coast Hotel where we enjoyed a beautiful meal and our prize giving took place. Our Lady President Geradine got proceedings under way where she gave a lovely speech about Isobel and they went on to present the Lady Captain’s prizes.  Next up was our President Frank who delivered a nice speech about our popular Captain Seamus.  Captain Seamus then spoke thanking the Men’s committee for all their help, the Hotel for the lovely meal, his family for all their support and John White for asking him to take on the role as Captain for 2022.  He thanked Bob who as always provided the PA system and the photos for the papers.  He continued and thanked the kiosk staff Irene, Brian and Mark and the Grounds keeping staff for the up keep of our fantastic course. Well done to Seamus and Isobel on a great weekend.

LADIES NOTES

CAPTAIN’S SCRAMBLE

Our Captain’s scramble which took place on Wed 1st June was a resounding success with a very large entry in glorious sunny conditions. Our resident chef Maurice and his helper Aisling were in charge of the cooking, needless to say there was an abundance of fabulous treats on offer, burgers, hot dogs and unlimited vino!! There were so many prizes, they almost had one for everyone in the audience. It was a most enjoyable start to the Captain’s weekend, and a huge thanks to all involved in the smooth running of the event!!

 

LADY CAPTAIN’S PRIZE

The Captain’s weekend which was hosted by our Captains Seamus and Isobel over the June Bank Holiday was a huge success. The qualifying rounds on Friday with perfect conditions brought in some very low scoring, but not to be outdone the ladies who went out on Saturday morning in drizzly conditions and our afternoon ladies in heavy rain still brought in some fabulous scores. It was all to play for on Sunday with the shotgun start at 10am with the lowest scores getting preference on the tees. Everything went off very smoothly with the women using

the front tees and the men using the back while the weather decided to hold off until all were back in the clubhouse. Our hardworking and efficient Lady Captain Isobel has left no stone unturned since she took up office and we were not surprised with her efforts of making sure everybody had plenty food and drink at the halfway station manned by the ladies. Her fantastic home bakes were being tested by the men, who maintained they had to go through quality control several times!!

Isobel’s prize was a fabulous painting commissioned by Inseun Kim, originally from South Korea but now living near Rathgormack and who is also a member of the club. Inseun, a registered artist in Ireland and who specialised in Asian Silk Canvas is now into general and abstract studies and is producing some stunning pieces!!

Delicious food was served in the Dugout Bar and Presentation of Prizes took place immediately afterwards. President Frank opened the proceedings and welcomed everybody to the Presentation of Prizes for the ladies and gents. Captain Seamus took up the lead to acknowledge how wonderful it felt to belong to such a wonderful club and how proud he was to be Captain.

Our Lady President Ger welcomed all and introduced our Lady Captain Isobel who was delighted and excited that all went without a hitch and the rain stayed away. The prize giving was a very lively affair with lots of shouting and clapping for each recipient, but the loudest was for the winners of both the ladies and gents which was John Hallinan and Leanne Bumster. Both were most deserving of the accolades as John went round level par on Sunday carding a 65 nett and a 70 on Saturday to claim victory. Leanne had two fabulous rounds on Saturday and Sunday with a total of 139 to claim her victory. Many congratulations to them and to all who participated to make it yet another memorable occasion!!

JUVENILE CLINIC A BIG SUCCESS

A visit the Gold Coast Golf Club last week by Gold Ireland’s Jennifer Hickey (Development & Club Support Officer-Munster) proved a great success. Organised by President Frank Mulvihill, eleven adult Leaders participated in the course aimed at the development of Juvenile golfers at the club. The aim – that each juvenile golfer be facilitated to reach their potential in a friendly and enjoyable surrounding.

The course was practical and all those in attendance put their pitching wedges and putters into action in a series of warm-up exercises, chipping skills and putting games. It is fair to say there were some very competitive Leaders present on the night!

When working with juveniles Safety is a priority and Jennifer demonstrated some fail-proof methods that should form the basis of all activities. The clinic comprised 6 main topics: 1. Equipment zones. 2. Warm Up Games. 3. Fundamental Movement Skills (FMS). 4. Safety. 5. Chipping exercises, and 6. Putting exercises. Feedback from the session was very positive with participants admitting they had found it very enjoyable and each had lots of fun. The leaders will now apply what they learned at the clinic with the Juvenile golfers at the Gold Coast.

 

GOLDCOAST CUP

Games to played by 12th June line up as follows Lee Crotty v Brian McGill, Tom White v Noel McCann Thomas Long v Peter O Keeffe, Pat Kiely v Diarmuid Henley, Declan Hallahan v Declan Kiely, Rafael Alvares v David Hallahan, John White v Nicky Dee.

GOLFING IRELAND VISIT FOR LEADERS

The following may be of interest to anyone who may be open to giving a few hours every now and then to assist with Juvenile Golf at the Gold Coast.

 

On Monday 23rd of May at 6pm Jennifer Hickey (Club Support Officer with Golf Ireland Southern Region) will come to the Gold Coast for a two hour practical session with those who may be interested in doing some work with Juveniles. The session will focus on skills and warm-up activities that will help junior golfers achieve their full potential. Participants will need to bring a pitching wedge and a putter to the session. This is really quite easy and a lot of fun and may even give you ideas on how to improve your own golf too.

 

If any of you are interested in this session (which is highly recommended), you can send Frank Muvihill President Gold Coast Golf Club your expression of interest by email to maglinlodge@gmail.com or send a text to 086-2323940.

Goldcoast Golf Club Notes 24th April 2022

INTERCLUB TEAM CAPTAINS

As the new inter club season begins, we acknowledge the vital role that the team captain plays. It involves making a lot of tough decisions. One of the hardest calls the team captain has to make is naming his panel. This inevitably leads to disappointment for some players. We ask that all potential members of team panels respect the difficult task that the captains face. We thank our team captains and wish them and their teams the best of luck in the upcoming competitions.
