Gold Coast Golf Club Notes 27th November 2017

Annual General Meeting:

Brian O’Connor in his Captain’s address to the meeting complimented all who had been involved with teams during the year. He paid particular attention to the Mixed Foursomes team on their achievement in reaching the Munster Final. Pat Power gave a very detailed report on the various events during the year in a comprehensive Secretary’s report. Our outgoing President, John Queally, was indisposed and on behalf of all here in the Gold Coast, we wish John a speedy recovery. Martin Murray outlined the financial state of the Club in a very thorough and easy to understand report. Some changes were suggested for the coming year and these will be looked at by the incoming committee. Tim O’Driscoll now takes over as Captain and Mick Cronin takes his spot as President and we wish both the very best for the year ahead.
