Gold Coast Golf Club Notes 12th August
President’s Prize 2019:

Golf will be followed by a BBQ and presentation of prizes will take place at 3.30 p.m. The President’s Scramble will take place on Wednesday 21st August at 5.30 p.m.
Anniversary Mass for Mick
Mick Ahern’s anniversary mass is on Sunday 18th August at 10.00 in Kill Church.
Come & Try Golf Day
Another innovation for the Gold Coast. The Club asked members to invite friends, neighbours etc to come and try playing golf and what a success it turned out to be. Over 90 people took to the fairways in a 9 hole scramble, with 2 nine holes being used. It kicked off at 10 a.m. and just after noon the first of the golfers starting arriving back at the feeding station expertly manned by Maurice and Josephine. A sincere thanks to all the members who got involved and played. Hopefully we will get some new members from the day. I’m sure that this will now become an annual event.
25th Anniversary Celebrations:
The Gold Coast will celebrate 25 years in existence on Sunday 22nd September. There will be an 18 hole competition for members with starting times running from 8.00 a.m. to 10.22 a.m., Ladies from 10.30 a.m. to 11.30 a.m. There will be a scramble at 12.30 for past members and officers and any present members who wish to take part. All past officers will be invited to play golf and to a dinner which will take place at 4 p.m. All current members will also be invited.
Charity Day in September:
This year we are joining with the Ladies Club on Sunday 15th Sept to help raise some money for Breast Cancer Awareness. Last year we wore our club colours on the day but this year all members are asked to wear pink as that is the colour that represents the charity we will be playing for.

Come and Try Golf Day
Our fun day was held on Sunday 11th August with a huge turnout from members and visitors of all ages from 9yrs and upwards, despite the fact we were playing a 9 Hole scramble all 18 tees were used several times!! With a shotgun start, all teams were in together around 1pm for the delicious BBQ prepared by our resident chefs, Maurice and Josephine who did a marvellous job despite the long queues of very hungry golfers. There was plenty of vino to keep the non-drivers happy as well as minerals and water for everybody, thanks to all involved in organising and sponsoring the event, a great day!! Presentation of all outstanding and scramble prizes took place in the car park in glorious sunshine with plenty of giveaways for the less fortunate!! Well Done.

Play in Pink Day
The Gold Coast are hosting this event on Sunday 15th September in aid of Breast Cancer awareness in an 18 Hole Singles format, this being a charity event we are hoping to see all our ladies out on the fairways dressed in as much pink as possible!! This year the Men’s club have decided to take part in the Pink Day, which should make this a fun day for all, it will be interesting to see what shades of pink the boys will arrive in!!!!!
Card Rota System
We are currently looking for volunteers to help with competition results, a knowledge of computers is an advantage but not essential as tuition will be given, also being a committee member is not a requirement. Please forward your name to Lady Captain or any committee member, it would be much appreciated!!
Our next meeting will be Friday 12th July @ 8pm
If you are contemplating a new activity and making new friends for 2019 we have the answer, why not join us here at the Gold Coast!!
