48 players have now completed their 10 rounds and these players can now only improve on their scores. While most players still have 5 weeks to complete their rounds there is no doubt but that one or two will struggle to get the required 10 games. It is still to close to call as to which teams will qualify for the play-offs. Despite the bad weather the numbers playing each week is very encouraging and so far there has been about 1000 games played in the league.
All the scores up to week twelve are on the website: goldcoastgolfclub.com
