President’s Prizes 2017
Mr John Queally, President, will present his prize next weekend, with qualifying on Friday afternoon and Saturday and the final on Sunday. John Queally has been a great supporter of the Golf Coast for many years and played in many teams representing the club. He is also a great sponsor to the Club, sponsoring the Winter League and also sponsoring the burgers and sausages for all the BBQ’s we have during the year.
Once again the week gets underway with the Skins on Wednesday, starting at around 4.30 and the BBQ starting around 5.30 p.m. There might even be an odd glass of wine available to participants. Entry for all of this is just €2.
Booking is now open and players may book in at a time that is suited to them. The draw for partners will take place on Wed 23rd August at 4 p.m. and only players entered at this time may win the 1st prize.
This year we will have a BBQ going in the car park for all participants running from 11.00 to 5 p.m.
The presentation for the President’s Prize will take place on Sunday evening at 9 p.m. and all members and friends are invited to attend.
We wish John all the best for the weekend and hope that the weather is kind and that we have a great competition. Also, best wishes to Lady President Gillian who hosts her President’s Prize on Sunday next.

Lady Captain’s Outing
Our ladies took to the fairways in Mt.Wolseley Golf Resort on Saturday 12th Aug in glorious sunshine for a challenging and very eventful round of golf. The course was magnificent with some very interesting water hazards and undulating greens, which kept some people very focused!! Dinner which was superb was served in a private dining room accompanied by sparkling wine for everyone, a lovely surprise!! Presentation of prizes took place after the meal with some surprising elements and lots of laughter which continued in the bar till late, very late for some!! A big thank you to our Lady Captain Ger for organising the event, to the hotel staff for their attention to detail and to Eamonn and staff in the pro-shop for their welcome and assistance, the only downside was having to leave!!
