Castle Barna Mens Results 12th Nov

Castle Barna Golf Club.

Despite all the rain an early morning inspection deemed the course to be playable to ensure the Hamper competition, sponsored by Leavy`s Centra, went ahead last Sunday. Almost everyone had stories to tell of lost balls from plugging or being hidden under leafs, but conditions were the same for all. At the end of play it was Mountlucas man Niall Smyth (12) who captured the bumper hamper on offer with a return 40 points. Div 1 went the way of David Brazil (2) his 37 pts edging out his neighbour and swing coach, Dan Cunningham. Despite being warned for slow play by the day`s official as he approached the ninth, Chris Merrigan (14) recovered his composure and speed to take Div 2 with 37pts thanks to an internal cut. After landing a substantial tiling contract in Daingean, Wes Daly (17) celebrated by claimed Div 3 on 39pts even after an internal cut. There was a three way tie for Div 4 which Pat Fay eventually took after his better back nine.

Next week the third round of the Winter League takes place.

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.
