Gold Coast Golf Club Notes 24th June
Thurles was the venue on Saturday for our clash with Youghal in the 1st round of the Senior Cup. The team lined out as follows: Alan Harty, Diarmuid Henley, Micheal White, John White and Michael Lenihan. Updates on all matches were provided on WhatsApp throughout the day and thanks to Pat, Brian and Martin for keeping us up to date all the time. Gold Coast went on to win the match and next up was near neighbours Dungarvan. Team Manager Ian Prendergast had to make two changes as on the team for the afternoon match due to unavailability of players so the team lines out as follows: Michael Lenihan, John White, Ger Bagge, Seanie Lenihan and Micheal White. Dungarvan proved too strong on the day, we wish them the best of luck in the next round, but a fantastic effort from our panel of players. Thanks to Ian for managing the team and all who supported the players in Thurles.
Junior Cup in Tramore:
We travel to Tramore to face Youghal at 10.30 a.m. on Saturday next in the 1st Round Match. Best of luck to all involved and any support would be greatly appreciated.
Changes to Monthly Medal Format.
The next two monthly Medals will have a new format. The competition will now be played as Stableford off the Blue tee, but the medal will still go to the player with the best nett stroke score. This change is made on a trial basis and will be reviewed after two months.
The Club extends condolences to Nicky Keane on the death of his father John on Saturday. Ar Dheis Dé go raibh a anam.
Well done to Rob and Natalie who both participated in prestigious Iron Man endurance event in Youghal on Sunday in very difficult weather conditions.
