Castle Barna Golf Club. Sunday, 13th August

Camillus McCauley (15) took the overall honours in last weekends GOY stableford competition with a fine return of 42pts. Runner up was the returning Lee O’Meara (2) who shot 3 under for 41pts. Lee got the better of Michael Brereton (3) on countback, Michael however had the consolation of the Division 1 prize with his 41pts. Another countback was needed to decide Div 2 where Peadar Hanley (15) with 38pts denied Clive Kelly. In Div 3 Francis Reilly (18) continued his excellent form of late scoring 40pts to secure his third appearance in the prizes in a month. Philip Hannigan (28) made his trip back to Dublin more enjoyable as he collected the Div 4 award with 39Pts.

Congratulations to Adam Kelly who finished a very creditable 5th overall and won the net prize in the Leinster Boys Under 15 finals which was played in Dun Laoghaire Golf Club last week. At the other end of the age spectrum our seniors hosted their counterparts from Portlaoise in the return leg of the Bowden-Nolan Shield. The home side had it all to do trailing by 41 points after the first leg. Play was in fourballs and with the ten best cards to count anything was possible. After some terrific performances Castle Barna ate into the 41 point deficit and when the final cards were checked the aggregate result was a draw. The teams will meet for a third time to decide this years winners, with Portlaoise having the home advantage.

Next weekend  a change to the schedule and we are running an 18 Hole Single Stableford.
