Jimmy Bruen Shield:

Gold Coast travelled to Youghal on Thursday evening to play Tramore in the preliminary round of the Jimmy Bruen. After 18 holes both teams were still level which necessitated a match going down 19th before Gold Coast were declared winners

Back to the drawing board for the manager as he had now to plan for the game against Dunmore East knowing that he would be short a few players who were tied up with prior commitments.

Despite a slow start, it looked too close to call after the first nine but Gold Coast started to get on top early in the back nine and went on to win to set up a match against Waterford Castle. Once again we started very slowly and after 8 or 9 holes we were down in four matches. But once again the team spirit prevailed and slowly but surely we fought our way back to eventually win the match. Gold Coast went on to play West Waterford on Sunday in a repeat of last year’s final. Unfortunately for Gold Coast the result was the same as last year and West Waterford qualified for the area final. We wish them the very best of luck in that match and hope they qualify for the Munster Finals.

All the team were loud in their praise of the effort put in by the team manager John White. He left no stone unturned in endeavours his involvement with this team is very much appreciated by all here in the club. Thanks John. The panel of players used during the four matches was as follows: Ger Bagge, John Flynn, Tom White, Mark Lenihan, Colin McArthur, Roy Ware, Seanie Lenihan, Neil Dermody, Darren O’Droma, Michael Kavanagh, Niall Curran, Conor Clancy, Kieran Cullinan, John Kiely, Declan Kiely, David O’Connor. Thanks to all who turned up on the different day to support the team and a special thanks to the other panel members, even though they didn’t get a game they still came along to support the team.

Gold Coast Golf Classic:

This year our Captain took on the organisation of the classic with the intention of making a big improvement on last year’s event. Eamon came on board sponsoring the 1st prize and Tim got to work organising the rest of the prizes, all sponsored. Prizes organised, next item on the agenda was teams. Advertising was arranged and the bookings started to come in. In the meantime tee sponsorship was also materialising  and things were looking good. All that was needed was a change in the weather. The week started off poorly with Monday and Tuesday providing plenty of rain and wind. Wednesday was better and the rest of the week was very favourable for golf. By Friday evening we had reached our target and by Sunday evening our target was doubled. A lot of work went into the organising of the classic and credit must go to all involved. Leadership is everything and with Tim and Mick at the helm and a lot of people rowing in behind them, the involvement of the members, all our very generous sponsors and all our visitors we can now say that this was our best ever Club Classic. The prizes for the classic will be presented on Friday 18th May and all prize-winners will be notified.

Running alongside our classic, members and visitors will have the chance to win a goodie filled hampers kindly donated by our President, Captain and Maurice. The draw for the hampers will take at the presentation night on 18th May.

When the draw was made and the individual pairings became known it looked like this one would go down to the wire. Dunhill and Copper Coast both won their semi-finals, Dunhill with a good but very tight win over Tourneena while the Copper Coast had a much easier victory over Ballinacourty.

Not satisfied with 18 holes a number of the matches went on, some to the 23rd, before eventually the Copper Coast came out on top. Well done to the Copper Coast on their victory and well done to Dunhill on winning the Leagfue section.

Captain Tim O’Driscoll paid tribute to both team at the presentation of prizes afterwards. He said that the contribution from both teams and the other teams in the league had made the league a huge success for the Club. Club President Michael Cronin also has great praise for both teams. Liam Clancy the winning Captain thanked Dunhill for a good game and thanked his own team for the effort they put in. Tom White Captain of Dunhill, congratulated Copper Coast on their victory and paid tribute to his own team who successfully defended their League section title.

Gold Coast Golf Notes 26th March

Insurance:

Shouting “Fore” doesn’t cover you legally for a bad shot or give you any exemption from what happens next. The only thing that can give you complete peace of mind is a specialist golf insurance policy.

A lot of people think that golf insurance is just about covering that expensive driver from damage or theft but there’s much more to it than that.

Ever wondered who pays for the damages when a golf ball flies through a car window? It certainly isn’t the car owner’s insurance company. A golf ball hit by an average golfer travels at around 150kph and can do serious damage to property and, more seriously, to an individual if struck.

In the Gold Coast we arrange Golf Insurance for any member wishing to take it up. The closing date for this year is Sat 31st March.

 

Legs of Lamb Winners:

The Legs of lamb will be available for collection from Thursday next, 29th March from noon on. The following are the various winners: Austin Kiely, Bobby Fitzpatrick 2, Brian Dunbar, Brian Fahey, Colin McArthur 2, Conan Watt, Conor Clancy, Darren Power, Frank Waters, Ger Darcy, Elaine Goss, Joe Curran 2, Joe Meade, Joey Veale, John D Walsh, John Enright, John Hallinan, John Queally, Liam Clancy, Micheal White 2, Nicholas Keane, Paul Lawton 2, Richard Walsh, Sean Carmody, Thomas Power, Tom Reynolds 2, Tommy Long.

 

Captain’s Drive In:

Our Captain’s Bernie and Tim had a brief discussion on Saturday last and decided, having consulted the fixture list, to reschedule the Captain’s Drive In for Sunday 8th April at 10 a.m. Congestion in our fixture list probably decided the issue as the following Sunday is booked by the ILGU, the Sunday after is our Club Classic, The ILGU are here again the following Sunday and the Vice-Captain’s Prize is on the following Sunday.

The Drive In will be followed by a 9/11 Hole Scramble and then Spare Ribs and Colcannon in the Gold Coast.

 

Saint Augustine’s College to contest All Ireland Semi-Final:

On the 24th April the Friary team will travel to Monkstown to play RBAI in the All Ireland Colleges Semi-Final. They qualified for this by becoming Munster Champions when they defeated Christians College Cork in the final, having beaten Crescent College earlier that day in the semi-final. The teams was Michael Lenihan (Gold Coast), Jake O ‘Riordan (Dungarvan), Daniel Raher (Dungarvan), Michael Troy(Dungarvan) and Seanie Lenihan (Gold Coast) and Barry Morrisssey (reserve)(Dungarvan).

The Munster Final was a very tense affair with The Friary team on top throughout but the result was never certain due to the good play and spirit from Christians. The Friary team prevailed when in the last match on the last green Seanie Lenihan from the Gold Coast won his match with a 4 foot putt for par which decided the overall result in favour of The Friary. In the other matches Michael Lenihan, Seanie’s brother, won his match on the 18th, Jake O’Riordan unlucky to lose a close encounter on the 19th, Daniel Raher losing to outstanding golf from the Christians player and Michael Troy recovering from 3 down to win his match in style on the 17th.

Premier Butcher @Dawn Meats Winter League Semi Finals

Dunhill march on to the final following a tough game against Tourneena where it all came down to the final match, both teams with 6 wins apiece. The final match was level playing 17 but coming up the final hole Dunhill needed to halve the hole to once again appear in the final. Richard Walsh duly obliged and now Dunhill will take their place in the final next week:

Dunhill Team which played last

The following represented Dunhill: Tom White, John White, Michael Kavanagh, Micheal White, Dave O’Connor, Richard Walsh, Brian Dunbar, Willie Flavin, Jack Moore, Willie Moore, John Queally, John Flynn and Eamon O’Donnell. Tourneena’s team included: Roy Ware, Brian Fahey, John Hallinan, Rafael Alvarez, Larry Whelan, Geoff Collins, Jimmy Beresford, Tom Reynolds, Darren Williams, Liam Beresford, Neil Dermody, Darren O’Droma, Jody Hallinan.

The Final:

On Saturday next 31st March Dunhill will take on Copper Coast at 9.00 am in the 2018 final. Following the final both teams will go for a meal in the Gold Coast and this will be followed by the presentation of prizes.

It should be a top class final as both teams look strong on paper and the result of this match could probably come down to the draw. Well done to both teams on reaching the final and we wish them all the best in the final.

 

Deise League:

On Saturday last we had our first outing in the Deise League when both Faithlegg and Waterford Castle visited us here in the Gold Coast. Our team consisted of Seanie Lenihan, Tommy Long, Ger Bagge, Austin Kiely, John Enright, Tom Power, John Hughes and Gerry Comerford. We ended up winning two matches and losing two. Our next game will be in Faithlegg on Saturday 7th April.
