JOHN WHITE CARPENTRY SPONORED WINTER LEAGUE 2022/23
This year’s winter league is now in full swing and runs until the 10th February 2023. The format this year 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. Best of luck to the 9 Captains and their teams. Its promises to be a very competitive winter league going on previous years. A huge thanks must go to our sponsor again this year John White. We ask that all players write the name of their team on the cards to make it easy for the kiosk staff to add your score to the spreadsheet. Teams are currently on display on the club website, news section. Team scores will be updated here once a week.
GOLDCOAST MENS CLUB AGM 2022
The AGM of the Gold Coast Men’s Club will take place in the Gold Coast Hotel on Sunday November 20th at 5.00pm. Notice of motions for the AGM must be given to the Club Secretary by November 13th. Notice of nominations for Club Officers and members of the general committee must be made, in writing, to the Club Secretary by November 13th. The sheets, showing nominations for committee and motions received for the AGM, will be posted in the kiosk shortly after November 13th.
ON THE COURSE
Winter rules have now come in to play so it is marking and placing within 6 inches no nearer the hole on both fairways and rough. Bunkers are also GUR for the duration of Winter League. Please check with kiosk staff for further updates. Please remember to repair all plugmarks on the greens, with the weather turning wet, balls will mark the surface. Also please shout fore if your ball goes astray. I myself had a close one last Sunday on the course as I was nearly hit with no shout coming from a tee box.
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 the computer. Spot checks of cards will be carried out by our course ranger.

This rule applies to both General Play and official Competitions. The player is now totally responsible for submitting their score once it has been pre-registered. If they fail to do so without providing the committee with a valid reason, an automated penalty score will be applied. Mandatory Handicap on Scorecards. From 31st March 2022, Golf Ireland requires that the player’s Handicap Index is verified before playing and is the required handicap on a scorecard

Envelopes are supplied in kiosk for entry fees, please state clearly: date, your name, your team and which league, i.e. 10 or 18 holes. Enclose €40 in envelope and hand into kiosk only!!
The midweek 9 Hole is proving to be quite popular with new and long term members coming together for a social outing with a cuppa and catch-up afterwards. We have changed the day to Thursday to facilitate our Bridge Club ladies, our next outing will be Thur 10th Nov at 12.00 due to time change and we are hoping to run this event through the winter with a change of tee times to take advantage of the daylight hours. This is an ideal opportunity to play the 10 Hole Winter League in
conjunction with the competition of the day. Registration is 12pm on the day with Anne or Mary. Please support, as these midweek events are fantastic to keep you swinging and enjoying the game!!
