Gold Coast Golf Club Notes 11th February 2019
John White Carpentry Winter League
After roughly 1800 games of golf, played over the past 15 weeks the Winter League finally came to a conclusion last Friday. It has been a fantastic league with the weather playing favourable, so many games played, great source of revenue for the Club, generously sponsored by club member John White. Dunhill, like Kilkenny in GAA parlance, reigned supreme for a long number of years and deservedly were the kingpins of the Winter League’s league section as they always put in an extraordinary effort to retain their title.
This year, however, there is a change at the top and Clancy’s Coasters just pipped Dunhill in the final week of the league to claim the title for the 1st time in a long time. Congratulations to the Copper Coast. The final scores in the league are as follows:
Copper Coast 4332
Now it is on to the knock-out stages of the league and first up is the quarter final between Tourneena and Dungarvan on Saturday 23rd Feb at 9 a.m. Tourneena will have the honour on the 1st Tee.
On Saturday 9th March both semi-finals will take place with the Copper Coast playing the winners of the quarter-final at 8.30 a.m. and Dunhill playing Ballinacourty at 9.45 a.m. In these matches Copper Coast and Dunhill will have the honour on the 1st Tee. The final is schedules for 9 a.m. on 23rd March. Following the final the presentation of prizes will take place in the Gold Coast Hotel.
