SUPER SUB SYNNOTT SAVES THE DAY- LADIES JUNIOR CUP
CONGRATULATIONS

 

Our ladies Junior Cup Team won their AIG Junior Cup quarter final match against Charlesland in Balbriggan today Sunday July 9th.

 

This was a really tight match, having won 2 matches and lost two matches the result hinged on the outcome of the last match remaining on the course.  Liz Synnott ( Super Sub!) was drafted in to play the match this morning at the last minute, 2 down going to 15th, it was not looking good, but Liz won 15th and 16th  to bring match all square and ensure game went to 18th. The ladies halved 17, 18 and 19 but Liz won the 20th to give Black Bush the victory and a place in the semifinals….Yay!!!!

Congratulations to all players, caddies and mangers…..Well Done Ladies

Big thank you to all the supporters out in Balbriggan today.

Congrats to Kevin, John and all the team.Straffan Cup: Well the Straffan cup made it so much easier on our hearts this time round.  They had a comfortable win against Milltown on Sunday May 21st.

INTERCLUB MATCHES SUNDAY APRIL 29TH – WHAT A MATCH..STILL RUNNING!
Straffan CupThe Straffan Cup match was played on Sunday 30th April with two matches away and three at home.The two matches away were royal battles. One of the Naas pairings had a stretch of 4 holes with 3 birdies and a par and Black Bush lads kept the cool and got back to just the one down but unfortunately lost on 17. The other match also lost on 17th with holes being won throughout the match with great pars.Two of our matches at home were won by 16th hole. The other match was all square right up to 18 and had to go down 19, 20 and 21 where the teams could not be separated and light had faded so the match could not be concluded. A ruling was given by the organising body that the last match has to be played again over 18 holes. Mario O’Reilly and Stephen O’Reilly will therefore play the match at home at about 3pm on Saturday 6th May. We wish them the best of luck. Finbarr/Martin
