Our team who were away to Williamstown did a magnificent job in fending off a strong opposition. First home was Aine 4/3, next home was Caroline 2/1 and Emma took her lady on the ninth clinching a win for the home team.

The second leg was the return visit to our home club, which took place on Sunday 9th June. Another thrilling match ensued in very cold and blustery conditions.

First to romp home was Mary Fennell 5/4 and next in was Mary French 4/3, the final went to a playoff with Aine taking to the fairways again and clinching a win for home club on the 2nd playoff hole. This is Aine’s second time securing a win on a playoff and I think she should be commended for doing so, well done Aine, you’re a star!

Goldcoast Golf Club Notes 2nd June 2024

CAPTAINS PRIZE 2024

Our two Captains held their weekend on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday last and what a weekend it turned out to be.  We were blessed with beautiful sunny weather as the Gods shone down on us.  It all began with the Captains Drive-in on Wednesday night.  I’m glad to report that Elaine and David both spilt the fairway on the first hole!  It continued with the Mixed Scramble with some great scores being returned. Over the 13 holes the winners were as follows: 1st Kevin Walsh, Paddy Walsh, Gerardine Hallinan and John Fennell.  2nd Jack Mullaney, Thomas Long, Sean O’Ciarba and John Faherty. 3rd Darren Williams, Micheal Wall, Bridge Walsh and Patrica Doyle. 4th Dermot Walsh, Brian Looby, David McCarthy and Ned O’Connor. 5th Micheal Kavanagh, Barry Doyle  Nicholas Doyle and Kyle De Winter. 6th John White, Darren Power, Tony Ruane and Mary Dunbar.

Friday and Saturday saw our qualifying rounds taking place.  Micheal Kavanagh posted a 68 nett on Friday to be over-night leader followed closely by Tony Keaver.  Things changed a little on Saturday with Alan Landers joining the leading group.

Sunday morning brought another day of brilliant sunshine, the carpark was busy as members arrived for the final round with everyone on their tee boxes for the shotgun start.  Some great scoring again was returned but as the dust settled, we had new champion Tony Keaver the Captains Prize winner for 2024, followed in second place by Micheal Kavanagh.

We retired to the Hotel for food and the prize presentation.  President John Hallinan got proceedings under way.  He welcomed everyone and called on Lady President Anne Keane and Lady Captain Elaine Nash who presented the ladies with their prizes. Congratulations to Lady Captains Winner for 2024 Mairead Ryan.

It was then the turn of the Men’s Club President John who spoke very highly of Captain David O’Connor and his achievements in the club both has a player and committee member.  It was then the Captains turn and he presented a very well written speech, in it thanking Micheal Wall for asking him to be Vice-Captain which he described as a honour to hold the office.  As Captain he went on to thank kiosk staff Director of Golf Irene Lynch and Brian Fahey, Rob and his Green Keeping staff, Mark Lenihan and the Management team, our Hotel staff for the beautiful food and the McGrath Family for our fabulous golf course.   He thanked John White, John Hallinan, Maurice Fennell, Micheal Wall and of course Brendan O’Brien for all their hard work in looking after the scorecards and helping to make the weekend the success it was.  He then presented a bouquet of flowers to lady Captain Elaine.  I want to say well done to Captains David and Elaine for all your hard work and continued success for 2024.

COURSE HANDICAP CHANGES FROM 1st APRIL

The “Course Rating minus Par” change is an update to the World Handicap System (WHS) that took effect in Great Britain and Ireland on April 1st 2024. It’s a new way of calculating handicaps, where the difference between the Course Rating and the Par of the course is taken into account. Here’s how it works: Course Rating is the measure of the difficulty of a course for a scratch golfer. Par is the standard number of strokes an expert golfer is expected to make for a particular course. Under the new system, your Course Handicap is calculated using the following formula:

Course Handicap=Handicap Index × (113÷Slope Rating) + (Course Rating-Par) If the Course Rating is higher than the Par, you’ll receive additional strokes. Conversely, if the Par is higher, you’ll lose strokes. This adjustment aims to make the game fairer and allows players to compete from different tees without needing an adjustment. Updated course handicap tables are displayed at the first tee noticeboard or can be checked by consulting your Golf Ireland App.

COURSE HANDICAP CHANGES FROM 1st APRIL

The “Course Rating minus Par” change is an update to the World Handicap System (WHS) that took effect in Great Britain and Ireland on April 1st 2024. It’s a new way of calculating handicaps, where the difference between the Course Rating and the Par of the course is taken into account. Here’s how it works: Course Rating is the measure of the difficulty of a course for a scratch golfer. Par is the standard number of strokes an expert golfer is expected to make for a particular course. Under the new system, your Course Handicap is calculated using the following formula:

Course Handicap=Handicap Index × (113÷Slope Rating) + (Course Rating-Par) If the Course Rating is higher than the Par, you’ll receive additional strokes. Conversely, if the Par is higher, you’ll lose strokes. This adjustment aims to make the game fairer and allows players to compete from different tees without needing an adjustment. Updated course handicap tables are displayed at the first tee noticeboard or can be checked by consulting your Golf Ireland App.
