Gold Coast Golf Club Notes 16th October 2017:

Gold Coast Mentioned at Lions Club Awards Night:

At the recent awards night hosted by the Lions Club in Dungarvan reference was made to the extraordinary amount of monies raised by the Gold Coast for the Annual Christmas Appeal. The amount raised to date is in the region of €30,000. It is a tribute to the members of the Club for their huge generosity and their willingness to always contribute to good causes.

Annual General Meeting:

The Club will hold its AGM on Tuesday 14th November in the Gold Coast at 8.00 pm. The nomination sheet for Officers and Committee is posted in the kiosk.

Premier Butcher @Dawn Meats Winter League 2017/2018

We will have 7 teams consisting of 13 players playing the winter league. A copy of the draft rules will be available on the website for members to peruse and make themselves familiar with same. Play will get underway from Monday 30th Oct and will finish on Sunday 25th February. The entry fee is once again €25 and the match-day fee is €7 for the first 10 rounds and €5 thereafter.

Turkey & Hams:

Next Sunday and the following Sunday, before the Winter League gets underway, we will have prizes of turkeys and hams. Our main sponsor, Dawn Meats, looks after us very well here in the Gold Coast, sponsoring our Winter League as well as the food for the Captain’s and President’s Skins and the Captain’s Drive In, so it is only right that we should support them in return. With that in mind we will play for prizes which will be given out three days before Christmas.
