Gold Coast Golf Club Notes 7th January 2019

 

John White Carpentry Winter League:

Ten weeks gone, six to go and from now on the scoring will start to tell a tale. It is very close throughout the table for different reasons. Some are vying for the top spot while others are more interested in qualifying for the match-play stages of the league. Dunhill continue to lead with 420.9 pts, Copper Coast continue to chase them and are on 418 pts. Tourneena are keeping Ballinacourty out of the semi-final spots, Dungarvan are in the quarter-final spots but are being chased by Abbeyside and Deise. Up to last Friday there was 1129 games played and if the weather holds and the entries keep up we will set a new record for the league this year.

Dunhill 420.9

Copper Coast 418

Tourneena 412.4

Ballinacourty 409.6

Dungarvan 403

Abbeyside 401.8

Deise 393.7

In the race for the individual title Johnny Hughes is in the lead with 40.9 pts, Micheal White is second with 40.5, Joe Meade is in 3rd place with 40.3, John White is in 4th place with 39.9, Brian O’Connor, David Hallihan and Ger Darcy are in 5th place with 39.5 each.

With six weeks to go we could still see many changes.

 

Congratulations to Kiki:

A ‘Hole in One’ at the eight hole in November and now a ‘Hole in One’ at the seventh hole last Sunday. Mighty shooting.

Winter League sponsored by The Moorings Bar & Restaurant

Our winter league kindly sponsored by The Moorings Bar and Restaurant over 10 holes has now finished Round 4 with the Daisies still in the lead with an ever -expanding margin followed by the Bluebells who are being chased by the Pansies. However, as we know with team events things can change dramatically and this was very evident after Rd 4 with a big shake-up amongst the remaining groups. With the New Year upon us and dryer weather conditions prevailing, it’s all to play for!! Well done to the team managers who are very busy contacting and encouraging their members – remember a point is awarded for each round played even when your score is not counting!!

Round 5 starts on Monday 7th JANUARY and runs for 2 weeks.
