Gold Coast Golf Club Notes 18th June 2018:
Irish Mixed Foursomes:
On Saturday last we travelled the short distance to West Waterford to play the hosts in a first round match of the Irish Mixed Foursomes. Our team of Kieran Cullinan, Rosemary Murphy, Micheal White, Elaine Goss, Michael Kavanagh, Helena Fitzgerald, John White, Karen Darcy, Eamonn O’Donnell and Gerardine Hallinan played very well on the day but came up against a strong West Waterford team who just pipped us on the 18th hole in the final match. Our thanks to Austin & Bridget for their hospitality during our practice session and on Saturday.
There was one highlight from the day and that was Eamonn O’Donnell getting a hole in one on the 13th Hole, the third hole in one for this talented young golfer.
On next Saturday 23rd June Gold Coast will play Mitchelstown in the 1st round of the Irish Senior Cup in Dungarvan at 8.40 a.m. Martin Murray and Jimmy O’Dwyer are in charge here and I am sure that they would appreciate any support for the team from members.
Belvedere Trophy 2018:
Gold Coast play Waterford in the 1st round of this competition in Waterford this evening (Monday) at 5 p.m. The return leg will take place in the Gold Coast at a date to be fixed.
Michael Cashman Foursomes:
Liam Clancy’s charges went into battle with last year’s All Ireland winners Ballykisteen on Saturday last and what a performance they put up as they eventually only succumbed on the 19th hole. Tomas Wall, Tom Power, Gerry Comerford, Rafael Alvarez, Dave O’Connor, Tony Condon, Peter McArdle, Des O’Brien, Leo Wall and Brendan Coughlan all played well and deserve great credit for the way they performed against a very strong team that has aspirations of returning to the All Ireland again this year.
New Chill Tops:
New Gold Coast Chill Tops are now available to order. They cost €55 each. If interested please try one of the tops in the kiosk for size.
General Date protection Regulations (GDPR)
These new regulations came into effect on Friday last and all companies and clubs are obliged to carry out these regulations with immediate effect. What this means to members is that the kiosk now needs your permission to give out your phone numbers to other members of to the GUI or to opposing team managers. That means that if you are to play someone in a match we cannot release that person’s phone number for you to contact him unless he has given us permission. The same applies to emails and as nearly all emails contain some information which could be construed as marketing, again it is necessary for us to get permission to send you emails. Forms are available in the kiosk for members to sign and the sooner you sign it the sooner we can start sending you emails again
