Castle Barna Golf Club. Sunday 26th March. Single Stableford.
The fine weather has allowed the course to dry out considerably and these factors combined to attract a good entry for last Sunday`s competition. Eoghan O`Donoughue (24) had perhaps his best ever day on the golf course when he compiled a terrific 44 points to win the competition. A great back nine of 23 points, helped by birdies on 10 and 13, got the job done for Eoghan, who celebrated his first outright win by treating the family to a slap up meal afterwards.
Div 1 went to Brendan Byrne (7) with 38 points. Liam Scally (13) was well rested after a tour to the West during the week and shot 40 points to take Div 2. Local man Ger Peyton (15) had his best round in a while, scoring 42 points to claim Div 3 on countback. Div 4 went to Kieran Dunning (21) with a modest 32 points again on countback. Div 5 was taken by Noel Maguire (22) on 38 points.
The Thursday Open was won by Shane Kelly from Killerig GC in Co. Carlow, who impressed on his first visit to the club scoring 41 points.
Next weekend`s competition is a Three Man Champagne Scramble.
The Walsh Kealy sponsored Thursday 9 Hole competition proved to be a great addition to the calendar last year, and it makes its return on Thursday 6th April.
