Gold Coast Golf Club Notes 30th June
Junior Cup in Tramore:
Our team lined out as follows: Ger Bagge, Diarmuid Henley, Lar Whelan, Seanie Lenihan and John White. It was as close as you could get in a golf match. Gold Coast won two matches, lost one on 17 and lost 2 on 18. Our management team of Micheal White and Jimmy O’Dwyer put in a big effort here and we are grateful to both for taking the on responsibility. Once again there was great reporting on WhatsApp and thanks to all the following who kept members up to date with the scoring: Pat Power, Tom White, Jimmy O’Dwyer, Colin McArthur, Brian Dunbar, Johnny Hughes, Martin Murray, Kieran Cullinan.
The draw for this competition takes place on 14th July at 4 p.m. Please enter on the sheet provided in the kiosk.
At the moment the course is in fantastic condition and having recently purchased a new roller for the greens it is fair to say that it would be hard to see better greens anywhere in the country. If you haven’t played the course lately you are really missing out.
Well done to the Ladies:
Gold Coast had a huge win against Fota in the Irish National Fourball sponsored by Revive Active and they now go on to play Skibereen in the Munster quarter final. Congratulations to Esther, Noirin, Lorraine, Mairead, Karen, Irene, Mary, Elaine, Martina and Bridget and especially to their manager Mary Clancy. Thanks to Ruth and John for reorting from the courses.
John Fitzgerald, Queens NY RIP
One of our overseas members John Fitzgerald of Queens NY and Knockateemore, died last week in the States. John enjoyed his golf in the Goldcoast when he came to visit for many summers. Condolences to Eileen.

Golf tuition with our resident pro will begin on Monday 24th June at the practice area, lessons start with beginners from 6-7pm and improvers from 7-8pm and will continue on a weekly basis.
Our next meeting will be Friday 12th July @ 8pm
