Gold Coast Golf Club Notes 26th November 2018:


John White Carpentry Winter League:

The rounds of golf are continuing to be clocked up and after 4 weeks the number of games played is up to 473. Dunhill continues to lead the way with 410 pts, Copper Coast and Tourneena are together on 402 pts, Ballinacourty slip back to 387 pts, Abbeyside make big gains and are now on 383 pts, Dungarvan on 380 and Deise on 379 complete the field. It is early day yet and a real picture will not emerge until most of the players have their ten games in.


Christmas is coming!

Yes, it’s that time of year again when we all look forward to the festive season once again. It is also the time when we think of the people who will struggle over this period and here in the Gold Coast our members have always been exceptionally generous in donating to the Lions Christmas Appeal, an appeal that helps the ‘less well off’ with vouchers for food and fuel. The Lions week will take place from Monday 3rd to Sunday 9th December and every cent contributed during that week will go directly to the appeal.

There will also be the usual raffle for a Hamper for 1st prize, a turkey for 2nd prize and a ham for 3rd prize. Our outgoing Captain, Tim O’Driscoll, has once again sponsored the hamper, for which we are truly grateful. Tickets for this raffle can be purchased in the kiosk at €2 a strip or 3 strips for €5.
