Gold Coast Golf Club Notes 28th January 2019


John White Carpentry Winter League:

It couldn’t be much closer at the top of the table as the results show, up to Sunday 27th Jan. Dunhill still lead but that lead is now down to just 18 points. Dunhill have accumulated 4294 pts, Ballinacourty are now in 2nd place with 4276 pts, Copper Coast are just 2 pts behind in 3rd place with 4274 pts. Tourneena are in 4th spot with 4211 pts, Dungarvan have 4102. Deise 4056 and Abbeyside 3985 pts.

With just 12 playing days left (up to Friday 8th Feb) it is still all to play for, both at the top and at the bottom of the league. Some teams have still a number of games to play to complete their table and these games could see a team move up the table fairly fast.

Johnny Hughes is in the lead with 413 pts, Micheal White is in 2nd place with 411, John White is 3rd with 406, Maurice Swan and Joe Meade are in joint 4th spot with 404, John Enright is in 6th spot with 400 pts.
