Goldcoast Golf Club Notes 18th December 2022


As Captains of the Club, we would like to wish all the members, the Goldcoast team, friends and all who helped in every way to make 2022 the wonderful year that it was for the club although saddened by the sad loss of our founder.

We wish you all the best in 2023 for you and your families and look forward with crossing paths with you on the fairways in 2023



Our Dungarvan Lions Club Appeal draw and presentation of monies took place yesterday morning in the kiosk.  Joining us on the morning was Ger O’Donovan President of Dungarvan Lions Club who spoke of the work they carry out every year to help the needy.  He thanked the Goldcoast Golf Club for their contribution each year.  Over the last 27 years it’s worth noting that in that 27 years the Management and members have given 50,000 euros to the cause which is some achievement, well done to all involved.

Our Captain Michael Wall then presented the cheque for this year, a total of €2,700.  He thanked our sponsors, members and management for all their support. He was joined by Lady Captain Rosie Murphy and President Rafael Alvarez, John Coade Lions club, photographer Liam O’ Suipel and committee members.

Thank you to our wonderful members of the club for their huge generosity and continued support of this worthy cause.

This year’s winter league is now entering its 8th week.  The League runs until the 10th February 2023 so there is plenty opportunity to get in the required rounds. The format this year is 9 teams of 12 players with 10 rounds to be played. 6 teams out of the 9 will go through to the play offs. We ask that all players write the name of their team on the cards to make it easy for the kiosk staff to add your score to the spreadsheet. A huge thank you again to our sponsor John White. It promises to be a very competitive winter league, scores can be viewed weekly on the club website news section.  Best of luck to the 9 Captains and their teams.



To keep our greens in excellent condition we wish to make golfers mindful to please repair all pitch marks.  At this time of year, even small pitch shots into the green can damage the surface.  To bring extra focus on repairing these marks, greens have been assigned to each of the Gents Winter League teams as follows:

1st and 10th Green: Abbeyside

2nd and 11th Green: An Rinn

3rd and 12th Green: Ballinacourty

4th and 13th Green: Comeragh

5th and 14th Green: Cork

6th and 15th Green: Dungarvan

7th and 16th Green: Dunhill

8th and 17th Green: Nire/Tourneena

9th and 18th Green: Stradbally

Thank you for your continued co-operation.
