Goldcoast Golf Club Notes 12th May 2024


We played our neighbours West Waterford Golf Club in this competition on Saturday at home and again we claimed victory on the 19th playoff hole after a great performance from our four pairs under the Management of John White and Martin Murray. Thank you to West Waterford for a sporting game.  The Goldcoast team was as follows Ivan O Connor and Stephen Kiely, Brian McGill and Darragh Power, John White and Nicky Dee, Darren Williams and Tommy Long. Reserves Micheal Kavanagh and Larry Whelan.  Well done to all involved.



A busy weekend lies ahead next weekend with our inter Clubs teams in action.  First off on Saturday are our Purcell team led by Captains Alan Darcy and Micheal Kavanagh who take on Tramore at home in the Gold Coast at 3pm.  Following that at 3.45 pm our Mixed Team under the guidance of Aisling Fennell and John Hallahan take on Williamstown at home again.  Then on Sunday our Fred Perry Team make the journey to Cobh to take on the home team at 12.30pm under the watchful eye of Bob O’Brien and Liam Clancy. We wish all players and management the very best of luck support at home and away and support from members over the two days would be very much appreciated.

Our ladies under the management of Breda Veale took on Waterford Castle on Saturday in the 9 Hole 2 leg match – play on home turf. They were delighted with the result of 3-2 to the Gold Coast but had a play-off to secure the outright winner. The result all hinged on going back up the 1st and Aine didn’t let the team down in clinching the win, wishing you all the best for the next round!!!



We had a great turnout on Thursday as we played our 10 holes in glorious sunshine and perfect conditions. The weather definitely reflected the scoring on the day with some great returns. The coffee and chat in the bar afterwards was both hilarious and informative with prized nuggets of information to be retained for life!!!

Thanks again to Anne for organising our event and the most fabulous prizes every week. I think at this stage everybody looks forward to Thursday!!!!
