Gold Coast Golf Club Notes 10th December:
Lions Christmas Appeal:
While we didn’t set ourselves a target this year, we will still be trying to raise as much as possible to help out people who are struggling at this time of year. The Members of the Gold Coast have always been more than generous when asked to contribute to any charity and as usual they have not been found wanting as so far this year the amount raised for the Appeal is very close to €2,000. The raffle for the Hamper etc will continue until next Sunday so there is still plenty of time for you to contribute and help us get past the €2,000 mark. The cut off point is 2 p.m. on Sunday next when we will welcome the Officers of the Lions Club to the Gold Coast. The President of the Lions Club will draw the ticket for the hamper and following that Lady Captain Ruth Hannigan, together with the Officers of both Ladies and Gents Clubs, will present the cheque to the Lions Club.
John White Carpenter Winter League:
Playing numbers are still very high and above last year’s, so far 706 games have been played. Dunhill continue to top the table, Copper Coast have moved into 2nd place, Tourneena drop to 3rd, Ballinacourty are in 4th place, Dungarvan overtake Abbeyside and Deise complete the table. The following are the team points after 6 weeks: Dunhill 412, Copper Coast 407, Tourneena 405, Ballinacourty 400, Dungarvan 393, Abbeyside 389, Deise 381. All these scores could change when players have their 10 games played and they start to replace bad scores. It will only be in the last few weeks of the league that we will see how the teams are really doing.
