Castle Barna Mens October Results

Castle Barna Golf Club. Sunday 8th October:
After a runner up position two weeks ago, Stephen Harte (12) went one better this time when his 42pts secured the win in last weekend`s singles competition. Vince Captain, Dan Cunningham (9) also shot 42pts, only being denied the outright win by virtue of a countback. After winning a month ago Clive Kelly (12) continued his god form to take Div 1 with 37pts, again after a countback. Div 2 went to another who was in the prizes recently, Brian Dunne (15) registering 40pts. Ballinagar`s Paul Cuskelly (17) took Div 3 with 39pts, with the Div 4 prize going to Martin Jordan (24) on 41pts. This was the final event in the free sub competition. The qualifiers will be notified of their tee times for the final by email.

Castle Barna Golf Club. 22nd October.
Castle Barna held up very well after the visits of Brian and Ophelia with no real damage done. Although parts of the course were soft underfoot, the greens were in good condition and Sunday`s competition was given the green light to go ahead. Numbers were down as many thought the course would be closed. Those that did show up got their weekly round in calm conditions. Dominic Goodings (14) produced a good 41 points to take first place by a four shot margin. Second place went to Declan Rogers (7) on 37 pts, with Ger Kenny (15) taking third after 36 pts. Next Sunday sees the start of the Winter League once again sponsored by Fitzpatrick`s Garage Hyundai. The league will be held over eight rounds with the best four scores counting towards the team matchplay series.
The Captain`s Buffet takes place next Sunday commencing with a reception at 7.30, followed by food at 8.00pm. Music will follow from Martin Goulding. It promises to be an enjoyable night as Captain`s James Mahon and Mary Mangan celebrate their year in office. Only a limited number of tickets remain.
