Our condolences are offered to the Cronin family on the sudden passing of Mick Cronin of Knockaderry Kilmeaden. Mick was President in the Goldcoast in 2018 a true gentleman on and off the course always had a friendly word for everyone he met. Mick was native of Boherbue, Mallow, Co. Cork. He served as a member of an Garda Síochána in the Waterford Division until his retirement a number years ago. We offer our heartfelt sympathy to his wife Anne, his son Peter, his daughters Noreen, Mairead and Sinead and his brother Tim, extended family and many friends. Mick will be reposing at his residence on Monday 11th of October from 4pm to 8pm at eircode X91T2F9. Removal on Tuesday the 12th of October to Faha Church for Mass at 11am. The Goldcoast Golf Club is doing a Guard of Honour for Mick, members are asked to assemble in Gold Coast attire in Faha at 10 30am, past and present Officers are asked to wear their club blazers. May God have mercy on his gentle soul. R.I.P.
Well done to Micheal White and Ned O Connor who beat Alan Darcy and Frank Waters on the 20th hole in the final of the foursomes competition, I would say it was a trilling game of golf. Well done again to the winners
Reminder to all members the approach road to the club is closed for the next number of weeks for water main replacement please follow diversion route.

WORLD HANDICAPPING SYSTEM AND GOLF IRELAND APP at www.golfireland.ie
The World Handicap System was launched in November 2020. Please go to the Golf Ireland website and find your handicap index. The WHS is an averaging system based using the best 8 of the last 20 scores on your record. To access your handicap information, you must register and create a new account at www.golfireland.ie using your eight-digit CDH number and 4-digit PIN, both of which are printed on the rear of your GUI/ILGU Member Card. You can also now download the new Golf Ireland App which will also enable you to view your own handicap index and playing record. We would urge all members to register now and familiarise themselves with the WHS system.
HOW DID I DO APP FOR COMPETITION SIGN IN AND SCORE ENTRY
The facility exists for members to sign in and input their scores at the Club for competitions through their phone on the Howdidido mobile App. Members are encouraged to register for this service on the HowdidiIdo website.

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.
The guidelines for now are members with no restriction on households permitted per booking for social or club competitions. Meanwhile all regulationshave to be adhered to when entering and playing your round. Members please make yourselves aware of the changing guidelines in relation to golf from the government and Golf Ireland, information regarding any changes will be posted on the WhatsApp group.
