Gold Coast Golf Club Notes 9th July 2018
Junior Cup in Carrick-on-Suir Golf Club:
Thursday is the day designated by the Munster Branch and Carrick-on-Suir the appointed venue for the area final of the Junior Cup match between Gold Coast and Clonmel. Martin Murray and Jimmy O’Dwyer will have left no stone unturned in their preparations for this match. The very best of luck to Martin, Jimmy and all the panel of players involved. Any support would be greatly appreciated. The match tees off at 4 p.m.
Status of Incomplete Cards and ‘No Returns’ in Qualifying Competitions
(a) All cards must be returned in Qualifying Competitions, whether complete or not.
(b) It is expected that every player who enters an 18 Hole Qualifying Competition intends to complete the round.
(c) Since an incomplete card and a ‘No Return’ may have the effect of increasing a player’s handicap, the club would be justified in refusing to accept a card or record a No Return when the player has walked in after playing only a few holes.
(d) Cards should not be issued to players when there is obviously insufficient light for them to complete the round.
(e) Sympathetic consideration should be given to players who have had to discontinue play for any cause considered to be reasonable by the organising Committee.
(f ) Clauses 23 (GPA Handicap Adjustment) and 24 (Suspension) of the UHS give clubs the discretion to deal with players who persistently submit incomplete cards or make ‘No Returns’ if they consider they are attempting to “build a handicap”.
The Handicap Committee has noted that a few players are not returning cards and asked that the above be brought to their attention.
On Saturday next Gold Coast will play Cahir Park at Clonmel Golf Club at 9.10 a.m. in a first round match. Here again Martin and Jimmy are in charge and we wish both and all the players involved the best of luck. Again, any support would be appreciated.

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.
