Goldcoast Golf Club Notes 7th July 2024


We look forward to our Memorial Classic, in memory of the founder of the Goldcoast Resort John McGrath, which takes place this Wednesday 10th July at the Gold Coast Golf Club. Teams must present in the car park before 8.30am for a team photo and collection of scorecards. We will be teeing off at 9 am in a shotgun start and continuing for two rounds for teams of four players. Tea/coffee and sandwiches will be provided when passing from 18th to 1st hole and burgers and sausages will be provided after the 11th hole. Following the golf a meal and presentation of prizes will take place in the Goldcoast Hotel. The cost of entry is €50 per person, and we kindly request that this is paid to the Kiosk before Tuesday.  From this entry fee a very large amount will go to purchasing equipment for the Palliative Care Unit in Dungarvan Community Hospital. This is one of the best days of the year in the Goldcoast and one of the most enjoyable golfing days of the year.



A Handicap review is taking place now and will continue for several weeks.



Please remember to repair all divots on the fairways and pitch marks on the greens to keep our course in great condition. Please check with kiosk regarding current conditions of play.



We ask members and visitors alike to please adhere to our club dress code. If unsure please consult with the kiosk staff.



Congratulations to Declan Hallahan on acing the 7th hole in Friday’s Open Singles on 28th June.  Well done on a great achievement!

Our ladies under the management of Anne and Breda V. played their match against Wat/Castle in Tramore on Tuesday 2nd July.

As this was a 9 Hole East Qualifier only 3 out of 10 clubs participating qualified and unfortunately we were one of the 7 who lost out!!

However, our girls gave it their all on a very tough and challenging course and we are very proud of their efforts!! Thanks to our players, caddies, managers and supporters on the day. It was appreciated very much!!

Wishing the qualifying teams the very best of luck in the next leg of the tournament!



Our Carton cup team under the management of Breda V and Anne were away to Castlecomer GC on Sun 7th July for their next leg of the tournament. A warm welcome awaited us from the Lady Captain and team members on arrival.

The matches got underway in a very friendly and sporting fashion and the result was indicative of the golf played from both teams!! We were delighted to come away with 2 wins and a half from a very tricky but beautiful course.

The ladies are looking forward to the return leg to the Gold Coast on Friday 19th July, and we are looking forward to welcoming them. Congratulations and well done to our girls, caddies and managers Breda V and Anne for a great result on a very difficult course.



Our girls are now through to the Regional semi-final which will be played in Cork GC on Sat 13th July. Our team consists of Irene/Mary K, Aisling/Rosie, Fiona/Karen and subs Esther/Miriam.  They will be meeting Mallow on Sat and if they qualify will go on to play on Sun 14th. We wish them and their Managers Bridge and Alice the very best of luck on the day.   Any support on the day will be greatly appreciated.



We were back to normal on Thursday after our trip to Tramore the previous week! We played our usual 10 hole competition with some spectacular results returned, while most of the group played extremely well, we had a runaway winner and runner-up.

Luckily, we all got in before the heavy showers to enjoy a lovely lunch in the hotel. The beautiful prizes on the day were sponsored by a very generous member, for which we are truly grateful and the recipients were more than delighted!!



1st Mary French 28pts

2nd Anne Keane 22pts
