JOHN WHITE CARPENTRY SPONSORED WINTER LEAGUE 2022/23
This year’s winter league has now entered its 15th week. With all the teams making the most of the fine weather and St.Brigid’s bank holiday weekend, it looks like the battle is well and truly on for the top 6 qualifying playoff spots with flurries of rounds coming in. An interesting and exciting couple of weeks lie ahead with the League running until the 24th of February, so best of luck to all team captains and players. The Quarter finals are set for Sunday 5th March with the semi-finals on the following Sunday March 12th. The grand final is penciled in for Sunday 26th March. A huge thank you to our sponsor John White.
Prizes of Legs of Lamb will be awarded to all prize winners for winter league until end of February. Each prize winner will carry a 2-point penalty deduction towards further prize qualification until the end of the league. A player winning a second prize will be deducted 4 points etc. A player’s full score will count for the winter league.
Our Captains Michael Wall and Rosemary Murphy will take to the first tee on Sunday morning February 26th to get our golfing year underway here in the Gold Coast Golf Club for 2023.
MARKING OF CARDS
Players need to be aware that you can’t for any reason mark your own card while playing your round of golf you must give your card to your playing partner who will mark your card and you will mark his/hers until round is complete. Only then will you get your card back to enter into the computer.
ON THE COURSE
To keep our greens in excellent condition we wish to make golfers mindful to please repair all pitch marks. At this time of year, even small pitch shots into the green can damage the surface. Players are also reminded for the safety of others to continue to shout fore for errant shots. Also good etiquette is advised regarding slow play and we ask players to be mindful of the pace of play on the golf course especially on busy days. Please keep your position which is behind the group in front. When in trouble or if necessary please call players through. Thank you for your continued co-operation.
