TRALEE Golf Club  won the AIG Barton Shield Munster Final on Saturday afternoon with a great display of golf against Castletroy.

The hosts defeated holders Cork in the morning semi-final, again playing some great golf to win by four holes.

They took an early lead in the final with the first pairing of Darren O’Sullivan and Eoghan O’Donnell starting well and holding a two hole lead at the turn.

Fergal O’Sullivan was partnered by Ger Deegan who came in for Graham Spring in the final in the second Tralee pairing, and they birdied the first and second to get off to the perfect start.

The pair were three under at the turn and six up on their opponents.  Tralee extended their lead slightly and although Castletroy mounted a comeback the deficit was too great and Tralee eventually won by eight holes.
