MASS FOR DECEASED MEMBERS

JOHN WHITE CARPENTRY SPONSORED WINTER LEAGUE 2022/23
This year’s winter league has now entered its 14th week. The League runs until the 24th of February 2023 so there is plenty opportunity to get in the required rounds. The committee 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 until 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 pencilled in for Sunday 26th March 2023. A huge thank you again to our sponsor John White.
Our Captains Michael 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.
We offer our heartfelt condolences to Aisling Fennell and family on the passing of her grandfather Liam Meehan which occurred during the week. May God Have mercy on his soul, rip.
Our dress code for the Gold coast 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.
MARKING OF CARDS
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.
ON THE COURSE
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. Players are also reminded for the safety of others to continue to shout fore for errant shots. Also good etiquette is advised regarding slow play and we ask players to be mindful of the pace of play on the golf course especially on busy days. Please keep your position which is behind the group in front. When in trouble or if necessary please call players through. Thank you for your continued co-operation.

There was a great turnout for our first outing of the New Year which was enjoyed by all!! Getting together for the golf and the cuppa was most enjoyable, sharing cookery tips, recipes and instructions on how to operate various kitchen gadgets was hilarious!!
Many thanks to Anne for continuing to organise the event and presentation of wonderful prizes!
The members of the Gold Coast GC would like to offer their deepest sympathy to Aisling Fennell and the Meehan family on the recent sad passing of her dear grandfather Liam.
May he Rest In Peace
