|Gold Coast Golf Club Notes 7th June 2020
Another week over with more normality returning to everyday life. Golfers are no different in this respect. We were looking forward to the 20km radius and competitions resuming, but instead on Friday the guidance changed. From 8th June any member from within the county can play golf at the Gold Coast. Also fourballs will be allowed at non busy times. Visitors can play with a member and can enjoy our fantastic course. However there are NO COMPETITIONS allowed. This is contrary to what was laid out before but we must go with the guidelines provided by Government. If you get to play this week ENJOY.
NEW MEMBERS WELCOME
We are delighted to welcome so many new members to the club just now. Committee & Club Members will be making themselves available over the next few weeks to accompany new members on the course. Helping with getting handicaps organised, going through the basic rules and the requirements on the course. Members at the Gold Coast will do everything they can to make you welcome so feel free to put your name down anytime with anyone and enjoy the camaraderie, the game and the stunning scenery.
From next week it is proposed to publish one rule of golf per week. It will help new members learning the game and act as a refresher for existing members. That said golfers are forever learning about their game and encounter many rules in every round.

Huge credit to the course staff during the Covid 19 lockdown to keep the course in such fine condition. It’s a credit to all involved. When you get back playing you will see the great work that has been done by volunteers on the bunkers too. The results have been stunning is what the feedback says. There are still a few bunkers to do so if you have a couple of free hours please contact the kiosk and they will arrange for your availability.
