Goldcoast Golf Club Notes 15th January 2023


This year’s winter league has now entered its 12th week. The League runs until the 24th of February 2023 so there is plenty opportunity to get in the required rounds. The committee has agreed to extend the league owing to the fact of cold weather we endured leading up to Christmas. Prizes of Legs of Lamb will be awarded to all prize winners for winter league untill end of February.  Each prize winner will carry a 2 point penalty deduction towards further prize qualification until the end of the league. A player’s full score will count for the winter league. A player winning a second prize will be deducted 4 points etc.

The format 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. The Quarter finals are set for Sunday 5th March with the semi-finals on the following Sunday March 12th with Grand final penciled in for Sunday 26th March 2023. A huge thank you again to our sponsor John White.



The golf notes that go out every week on the papers and online are for all members of the Club.  If you have anything that you want shared on the notes, please contact me on 083 4862771 or Irene or Brian at the kiosk on 058 44055.



Our Captains Micheal Wall and Rosemary Murphy will take to the first tee on Sunday morning February 26th to get our golfing year underway here in the Gold Coast Golf Club for 2023.  I am wondering who will out drive who but sure no pressure plenty of time to get some practice in.



Our mass for the deceased members of the club will be held on Thursday 2nd February 2023 in the Gold Coast Hotel at 7pm.  This is a chance to remember our friends who we lost in 2022 and previous years.  All are welcome.



Members of the three local golf clubs Goldcoast, Dungarvan and West Waterford are reminded they can avail of reciprocal golf for only €15 greenfees on weekdays.  This is a great opportunity to play our neighbouring courses for fantastic value.  To make a booking please telephone the offices of the respective clubs.



Players need to be aware that you can’t for any reason mark your own card while playing your round of golf you must give your card to your playing partner who will mark your card and you will mark his/hers until round is complete. Only then will you get your card back to enter into the computer.



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. Thank you for your continued co-operation.  Players are also reminded for the safety of others to continue to shout fore for errant shots.



Our dress code for the Goldcoast is slacks and polo shirts.  Please note sports jerseys, jeans and track suit bottoms are unacceptable on the golf course. Thank you for your adherence.
