Dungarvan have agreed to start the ball rolling with our first outing on Thursday 25th November, tee from 10.00 – 11.30am.

Our Christmas Scramble this year takes place on Sunday 5th Dec and is very kindly sponsored by Shaws Department Stores to whom we are very grateful. We will be holding this event in conjunction with the Lion’s Club Hamper Appeal with entries being donated as part of our annual fundraiser for the cause. The drawsheet will be online and also posted in the kiosk shortly, so please add your name for a fun day out and help a worthwhile cause!! Any updates or changes will be posted on our What’sApp group.
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 Anne 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!
