Gold Coast Golf Club Notes 25th March 2019
What a shock we all got on Saturday morning when we heard of the untimely passing of Vincent Morrissey. Vincent had worked in the Gold Coast as Manager for many years and was a very popular with all the staff and patrons of the hotel. He had a great talent with a camera and took many photos of the Golf Course and the resort and photos of presentations in the Gold Club. Our condolences to Zana Vincent’s family and the extended Morrissey family. Ar Dheis Dé go raibh a anam.
John White Carpentry Winter League Final:
Copper Coast turn on the style to win back to back league titles. Match-play competitions like the winter league are often dependent on the draw and here the draw definitely favoured Copper Coast as the got off to a great start and kept the momentum going to eventually see off the challenge from Dunhill. As the Captain stated during the prize giving this year’s league was record breaking in the number of games played. Both teams in the final had contributed greatly to this and credit must go to the two team Captains, Liam Clancy and Tom White.
League Sponsor John White said that it was a pleasure for him to sponsor the league as the club meant so much to him and his family and he will hope to sponsor it again next year.
The addition of a lady to each team worked very well and hopefully next year more ladies will get involved.
