Gold Coast Golf Notes 3rd Sept

Gold Coast Golf Club Notes 3rd September 2018:

Next Sunday:

Next Sunday is Blue Day in the Gold Coast. It is a day when all members are asked to wear a Blue Polo Shirt and play will also be off Blue Tees. The idea behind it is have an occasion on the course which will bring back memories of the many members who have died over the years and whom we would have played golf with down through the years. We have had some wonderful characters as members here in the Gold Coast and we honour some of them with competitions named after them. Next Sunday is a day to remember all the members who have passed on to their eternal rewards.

There will be a special prize for the winner of the competition.


End of Season Dinner and Presentation:

The ‘End of Season’ Dinner will take place on Sunday 7th October at 6 p.m. in the Gold Coast. Following the sit-down dinner the following prizes will be presented: Golfer of the Year, Order of Merit, Gold Coast Cup Singles Match-Play, Scratch Match-Play, Michael White Memorial Foursomes, Willie Barron Fourball, Mixed Foursomes.

Tickets for the event will be sent to the various winners, Winter League Captains, Team Selectors, Officers and Committee by the Club Secretary in late September. Tickets for the event can also be purchased in the kiosk.


Golfer of the Year 2018:

Four players are left in contention for the Golfer of the Year 2018. Brian O’Connor leads by 7 pts going into the final event of the year. Brian has 10 counting scores so this means that he can only improve on a previous score. John W Walsh is in 2nd place with 7 counting scores so his full score will count next week. Ger Bagge, Brian Dunbar and Micheal White would have to win next Sunday, but could still be denied if Brian O’Connor finishes with 8 shots of the winner. John Walsh would need to have a very good score with Brian having a bad day to win. All will be revealed next weekend.


Order of Merit:

This competition still have a number of weekends to run as it finishes on the final Sunday of the month. At the moment John Kiely holds a slight lead from Micheal White, and a string of players another point behind. John leads with 9 pts, Micheal is on 7 pts, Ger Bagge, Conor Clancy, Brian O’Connor, John Walsh, and Neil Dermody are all on 6 pts and a number of players are on 5 pts. This competition rewards players who beat standard scratch during weekend competitions.



Congratulations to Helena and Nicholas Fitzgerald on becoming Great Grandparents during the week. Nice to hear that there are now five generations of the family in existence.
