Goldcoast Golf Club Notes 10th December 2023


It is with heartfelt regret we record the passing of Fr. Jerry Condon P.P. Stradbally which occurred last week.  Fr Jerry was a member of the Goldcoast Golf Club since 1999 but he was more than a member, he was a friend to everyone at the Club.   He had his regular fourball each week with his great friends Fr. Connie Kelleher RIP, Tom Kirwan RIP, and Mosh Morrisey RIP.  For many years he celebrated our annual mass for the deceased members of the Club.  His passing will leave a huge void in the club. We offer our condolences to the Condon and Phelan Families and all his friends.  Rest easy now Fr. Jerry RIP.

Our Winter League this year again very kindly sponsored by The Moorings is well on the way with Rd 7 due for completion over the week-end.  Last week’s weather was quite changeable with only a small percentage of players taking to the fairways resulting in slow round completion.

The league ends on the 30th Dec, so there is plenty time to get your extra rounds in!! The Spring League starts on the 2nd week of January and list is now posted for new teams going forward.

The teams in the top 3 positions after Rd 6 with a shift in the leaderboard and magnificent scores returned are as follows:

The Bogeys 517 Capt. Gillian Cashman

The Pins 457 Capt. Katie Kiely

The Pars 376 Capt. Deirdre Ruane



On behalf of the Ladies Club, I wish to convey our heartfelt condolences to the Condon families at home and away on the sad passing of Fr. Jerry.

He was a wonderful character who was full of fun, laughter and mischief.  He will be fondly remembered for the lovely Masses he celebrated in the Goldcoast, on the course with his great friends Fr.Connie, Tom and Mosh with their flasks of tea and sandwiches.

They are all together now, having a catch-up and remembering the good times, and we will fondly remember them as The Last of the Summer Wine!!

May they all Rest In Peace.



Our Hamper Appeal this year takes on the same format as former years with the proceeds from competitions, Christmas cards, raffle for hampers, turkey and ham, plus much more going to the Appeal funds.

Our Christmas Appeal has kicked off to help those less fortunate than ourselves. Your support would be greatly appreciated. Raffle tickets are now on sale, 1 strip €2, 3 strips €5.
