JOHN MCGRATH MEMORIAL GOLF DAY
The John McGrath Memorial Golf Day will take place on Wed 13th July. It will consist of teams of four playing two rounds of golf continuously. The format will be two scores to count for the 1st round, and two x two person scramble for the 2nd round. Food will be provided on course during the two rounds and a sit down meal will be provided after the golf after which the presentation of prizes will take place. Can you please confirm to Bob O’Brien that you will have a team for the event? The cost is €40 per person and that covers golf, all food and a sizable donation to Palliative Care. The event will have a 9 am shotgun start. We have a limit of 20 teams and already we have entries for 16 teams. Subs may be used if required. Each team must contain at least one Gold Coast member.
Dates for your diary, on 13th July we hold our John McGrath Memorial Charity Day and our Presidents Prize on the weekend of the 19th to 21st August 2022.
Work is continuing on the course with grass cutting around the new trees which have been planted of late. These must be cared for, so care is needed when playing your ball from near these, please check with kiosk for local rules. Also the steps on the tee boxes are being replaced to make it safe for all players, and the sign on the 9th has been replaced to bring attention to be aware of players approaching from the 9th fairway while you are teeing off on the 7th.
Thank you to all members who have paid their annual subscriptions in full. Please note outstanding balances are due before 1st July. Please contact the office regarding settlement. Thank you for your continued support.
Hard luck to our Junior Cup team yesterday who had a close contest with Waterford Castle, being beaten 3/2. Well done to all the players and management for all the effort put in and best of luck to Waterford Castle in the next round.

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.
