Card Rota System
We are currently looking for volunteers to help with competition results, a knowledge of computers is an advantage but not essential as tuition will be given, also being a committee member is not a requirement. Please forward your name to Lady Captain or any committee member, it would be much appreciated!!
If you are contemplating a new activity and making new friends for 2019 we have the answer, why not join us here at the Gold Coast!! There are many good reasons for joining us, firstly we are an extremely friendly bunch who are always delighted to welcome new members and visitors alike, secondly our course is open all year round due to its natural drainage and last but not least the scenery is breathtaking!!
We here at the Gold Coast are very proud of our course and it’s natural beauty, if you would like to sample same, please contact our Director of Golf Irene on 058-44055 for some very tantalizing deals on offer at the moment for new members. There are always ladies available to take out new beginners and group lessons are arranged with a professional when the golfing season starts.
