Gold Coast Golf Club Notes 20th August 2018:
What a great day was had by all at the President’s Scramble on Saturday last. Our two Presidents started off the scramble at 12.30. The full timesheet showed the popularity of the Presidents involved. It was decided to split the field with half playing a 16 holes scramble and the other half playing a ten holes scramble. This was to have the players finishing at roughly the same time so that they could all sit down together to enjoy the Spare Ribs and Colcannon. Once again we must thank Michael Wall of Dawn Meats for the very generous sponsorship of the Spare Ribs. Full results below.
At the presentation following the Scramble cheques were presented by the Captain to the Dunhill Lourdes Invalid Fund (€500) and to Dungarvan Lions Club (€640). This money was raised during the Tony Dunford Memorial Day.
Qualifying for Mick Cronin’s Prize will take place on Friday and Saturday next 24th and 25th August and the final will take place the following day Sunday 26th August. The timesheet is open for players to enter and the draw for partners will be posted on the timesheet on Thursday morning. All members are invited to the presentation which will take place at 8 p.m. on Sunday night.
Special Prize for Blue Day:
Bob is sponsoring a special piece of Waterford Crystal which will go to the winner of the competition on the Blue Day, a day that we ask all members to wear blue to remind us of all the players who once played with us and who have gone to their eternal reward.
Golfer of the Year 2018:
Brian O’Connor is the new leader in the race for Golfer of the Year 2018, having gained 8 pts on Sunday in the Monthly Medal. Brian leads with 31 pts.
