That week is really building up for us here in the Gold Coast as we host the All GAA Golf Challenge on Friday and Saturday 8th and 8th Sept and also the GAA Masters Golf Tournament on Thursday 7th Sept. TheAll Ireland Golf Challenge is booked out and there is now a waiting list of teams trying to get into the competition.

White’s on Fire:

Great shooting again by Micheal White, off 2 handicap, carding a score of 4 under par gross in Sunday’s Monthly Medal, which left him with a 66 nett. He was followed home by Tom White with a 67 nett. Derek Power playing off 3 handicap also has a great round of one under par.
