GOLFING IRELAND VISIT FOR LEADERS
The following may be of interest to anyone who may be open to giving a few hours every now and then to assist with Juvenile Golf at the Gold Coast.
On Monday 23rd of May at 6pm Jennifer Hickey (Club Support Officer with Golf Ireland Southern Region) will come to the Gold Coast for a two hour practical session with those who may be interested in doing some work with Juveniles. The session will focus on skills and warm-up activities that will help junior golfers achieve their full potential. Participants will need to bring a pitching wedge and a putter to the session. This is really quite easy and a lot of fun and may even give you ideas on how to improve your own golf too.
If any of you are interested in this session (which is highly recommended), you can send Frank Muvihill President Gold Coast Golf Club your expression of interest by email to email@example.com or send a text to 086-2323940.

MARKING OF CARDS
Golf Ireland guidelines have stated that all 3 handicaps must be recorded on cards for competition and casual rounds for handicap purposes. To avoid disqualification you must record your h/cap index, playing h/cap and most importantly the course h/cap, all of these are available on the Golf Ireland app and also on screen when you log in for competitions. It is also important not to enter a zero for stableford competitions as it interferes with standard scratch, if you blank a hole just record the shots as the computer will adjust accordingly. All scores must be recorded by the marker and signed in agreement with the player before being returned no later than 30mins after you finish your round.
NEW MEMBER DEALS
Ladies, if you had ever thought of taking up golf, now is the time to do it, our Lady Captain Isobel and any committee member would be delighted to take out potential members and showcase our beautiful course and unrivalled scenery!! There are great deals on offer for new members and beginners including tuition, please contact our Director of Golf Irene or Brian in the kiosk on 058 44055 for more information.
