Hi Beth & All :

Anthranose is indeed a problem with some gold hostas.The good news is is that
it is not fatal and can be controlled with a fungicide or something similar.
There is an excellent treatment of the problem in Solberg's article , "Does
Your Hosta Have Measles?"
I don't have the cite, but published in the Hosta Journal in this decade.
