Gold Coast Notes 19th Nov

Gold Coast Golf Club Notes 19th November 2018:


Christmas is coming!

Yes, it’s that time of year again when we all look forward to the festive season once again. It is also the time when we think of the people who will struggle over this period and here in the Gold Coast our members have always been exceptionally generous in donating to the Lions Christmas Appeal, an appeal that helps the ‘less well off’ with vouchers for food and fuel. The Lions week will take place from Monday 4th to Sunday 9th December and every cent contributed during that week will go directly to the appeal.

There will also be the usual raffle for a Hamper for 1st prize, a turkey for 2nd prize and a ham for 3rd prize. Our outgoing Captain, Tim O’Driscoll, has once again sponsored the hamper, for which we are truly grateful. Tickets for this raffle can be purchased in the kiosk at €2 a strip or 3 strips for €5.


Vice-Captain and Vice-President:

John White is the Vice-Captain and Brian Dunbar is the Vice-President for 2019. Bob O’Brien will act as PRO on the new committee.


John White Carpentry Winter League.

Once again huge entries this week and some fantastic scores being brought in by all teams. One of the highlights of the week went to Andy Travers, who hit his second shot from 155 yards into the hole on the 15th for an eagle.  In the first 3 weeks of the league 352 games has been played which is up on last year. Good to see players taking advantage of the weather at present.

Dunhill lead the table with 418 pts, Copper Coast are in 2nd spot with 409 pts, Ballinacourty climb to 3rd spot with 405 pts, Tourneena are in 4th spot with 404 pts, Deise and Dungarvan both have 387 pts and Abbeyside have 380. But thes scores are only indicative of an early trend and a true indication of the table will not happen until most of the players have their ten games in.
