CARE OF THE GREENS
It has become noticeable that pitch marks are not been repaired on the greens. To keep our greens in excellent condition we wish to make all golfers mindful both members and visitors alike to please repair all pitch marks. Even small pitch shots into the green can damage the surface. So, it’s essential that all players are diligent in their repair of pitch marks on our beautiful greens. A correctly repaired pitch mark will recover in 24 hours, a pitch mark that’s left unrepaired will take 3 weeks to heal. Our greens are cared for in a very special way which make them some of the best in the country so with that in mind please help us to keep them in good order. We are asking that maybe we could run the repair of the greens as we did for the winter league, please consult the Goldcoast Course WhatsApp page for more information. We thank all members and visitors for their help with this upkeep of our greens.
Anyone interested in playing in the Fred Perry competition this year please contact Bob O Brien on 0868390871 or Liam Clancy on 0877937285. To be eligible to play you must be over 55 years on the 1st January 2022, so as you can see only open to the young lads.
Congratulations to Waterford’s own Seamus Power on his achievements in the WGC Match play in Austin Texas. He has cemented his place in this years Augusta Masters with some great displays of golf over the last few days, well done to Seamus.
