Blessington Lakes Golf Club

Barton cup team win decisively

An absolute brilliant display by our Barton Cup team this afternoon resulted in the end a quite comfortable victory. Away new recruit Stephen Byrne partnered Dave Costigan to a 5 and 4 victory. Some 20 minutes later Brendan Flynn and Paul Dowd followed up Trap 1 with a 3 and 2 win. Attention then switched back to the lakes with the 1st pairing out  Alan Doolan and Pat Brady  closing out their match on the 14th to seal the overall victory, remarkable really as the lads were 3 down standing on the f5th teebox, at this stage both of the other home pairings of Dermot McCarthy/Vinnie Chapman and Niall O Connor/Tom Barret were called in at the 13th hole with Blessington only needing a half in both matches to win as they sat dormie. Great performance gentleman we are all so proud of yiz.
