JOHN WHITE CARPENTRY WINTER LEAGUE
The John White Carpentry sponsored league final fell victim to the inclement weather we endured over the weekend when we were hit by storms making the course unfit for play. Subsequently the Winter League final was rescheduled to Sunday next the 27th February with the first tee off time at 9am. All team Captains are asked to have the team line up in to the kiosk 20 mins before tee times. Players are asked to be ready to go 15 mins before their time. Best of luck to Kilrossanty and an Rinn B in the final, nice to see a new team going on the list of winners of the winter league. Presentation to the winners and runners-up will take place after the meal in the Dug-Out Bar in the Gold Coast Hotel. Best of luck to all taking part in the final.
This event one of the highlights of the golfing year for 2022 will take place on Sunday 6th March when Captains Seamus and Isobel take to the 1st tee box for the annual Drive in best of luck to both.

CAPTAIN’S DRIVE IN
Our Captain’s drive in is scheduled for Sunday 6th March when Seamus and Isobel will start the golfing season at the Gold Coast, wishing them both the very best of luck for their year ahead!!
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.
The management and staff have implemented all the safety procedures to protect both staff and members who wish to play golf at the Gold Coast GC. Please keep yourself informed of new notifications within the club!
