Gold Coast Golf Club Notes 14th October
The AGM of the Gents Club will take place on Monday 4th November at 8 p.m. The nomination sheet for the Committee is now posted in the Kiosk. Delighted to see the sheet filling up fast and this augers well for the Club with members willing to give their time to assist with the progression of the game in the Gold Coast.
Change of Conditions:
Players are requested to make themselves aware of the playing conditions before going out to play. With the present broken weather Winter Rules could come in at any time.

End of Year Dinner:
Sunday 20th Oct is the date for the ‘End of Year’ dinner where all the match-play tournaments prizes will be presented as well as Order of Merit and Golfer of the Year.
Inter-County Hurlers in Gold Coast
The annual visit of the former Inter-County Hurlers Society took place over the weekend and it was great to see so many of the finest hurlers to play the game come along to play golf, meet and chat. Discussions went long into the night and on Saturday the Annual Dinner took place in the Gold Coast Hotel.
Each year a different county takes over the running of the Society, last year it was Clare, and this year it is Waterford’s turn. Stephen Greene as Captain and Justin Spratt as President will look to get as many past Waterford Hurlers involved as possible, we wish them well for their year.

Last week we all heard, with profound shock, of the death of Helen Fennell. Helen was one of the founder members of the Ladies Club and with her predeceased husband, Thomas, they both were an integral part of the Club for many years. Helen served as Lady Captain in 1995 and as Lady President in 2000. A Guard of Honour was provided by the Club at Helen’s Funeral.
Our condolences to Caroline and the extended Fennell family. Ar Dheis Dé go raibh a anam.
Our winter league starts on the 28th October, draw will be made this week.
18 hole competition 19th/20th October.
