Galway Shine over Galway Bay

​Three in a row for the Salthill men

  • 12 August 2017

​The 2017 AIG Barton Shield provincial pennant will adorn the walls of their Salthill clubhouse as it was the men from west of the bay who retained their AIG Barton Shield crown in Galway Bay Golf Resort on Saturday last.

Having overcome a nervous encounter with host Club, Galway Bay, in their morning semi-final where they eventually won at the first tie hole they simply outplayed County Sligo from start to finish to run out emphatic nine hole winners in the afternoon final.

County Sligo (pictured below) easily disposed of a gallant Athlone in their morning semi-final by a nine hole margin but were never up to Galway's standard in the afternoon.
