Castle Barna Golf Club. 5th February 2017. Single Stableford.
Last weekends competition was a Single Stableford sponsored by John Connolly Autos. (Happy birthday John). Scoring was modest in the cold but dry conditions.
It proved to be a memorable outing for Tom Ballesty (26), the Ballinagar man capturing his first ever outright win with 38 points. Runner up was Ollie Scally (17) with 36 points. The big O`s effort capturing two prizes on the day as he doubled up his entry to include the Ballycommon Society`s outing, even though he played off the wrong tees! Third place went to Ger Kenny (16) on 36 points. Ger would have finished higher but his score was subject to an internal cut.
Next Sunday is the quarter finals of the Fitzpatrick Garage Winter League. In a change to previous years the qualifiers will play in a normal three ball. The best score in the group scores 3 points for their team, 2 points for second best score and one point for third. When all scores are added up the top four teams will advance to the semi finals. Count backs will be used in the event of ties, it could be a busy evening for the stewards.

Sunday 6th December 2015.
Turkey Shootout – Sponsored by Molloy Décor, Tullamore
After the ravages of Storm Desmond, Castle Barna was just about fit for play for last Sundays Turkey Shootout competition which was sponsored by Molloy Decor, Tullamore. Conditions underfoot were very soft but the greens were very receptive and John Lowbridge (15) took full advantage with some good approach shots, to record a excellent 43pts to bag the large turkey. After a long absence from the prizes it was good to see John Neylon (22) back on form, the Dublin man`s 40pts secured the runner up spot, the smaller turkey. Bracknagh`s Keith Bracken was beaten into 3rd place on count back and he had to be content with the giblets.
There is another turkey shootout next weekend and a reminder that the Free Sub competition continues for all single competitions throughout the winter months.
Castle Barna Golf Club. Single Stableford, 9th November 2015.
Heavy overnight rain continued into last Sunday morning which left the course very soft underfoot and just about playable. The weather deterred a lot of people which resulted in a very small entry. Regular early bird Tony Curley (13) made the short trip from Mount Lucas worthwhile as he battled through the conditions to take the win with a fine 41 pts. Mark Farrell (12) also prevailed against the elements to take the runner up spot with 40 pts.
The Fitzpatrick Garages Winter League continues next weekend, lets hope for more reasonable weather and a return to a decent entry. The seniors enjoyed a final good weather day last Tuesday with a 4 Ball Betterball. Ber Malone teamed up with sharp shooter Michael Dunne to take a popular win, finishing ahead of Christy Swords and the youthful Eoin O`Donoghue.
Our seniors open continues every Tuesday and our open Stableford continues every Thursday. Bookings can be made at www.castlebarna.ie or by phoning the clubhouse on 057 9353384. New members always welcome
