This was Killeen Golf Club's second Leinster Pennant in two years in the Metropolitan Trophy following their defeat over Clontarf in 2016. Hollystown no strangers to victory had previosuly taken the title in 2015.

With the upper hand following a 6-3 lead after the first leg, Killeen quickly got a point on the board when Paul Magee won the top match by 2&1 against Keith Coffey.  Hollystown fought back with wins in the second and third matches but Killeen were too strong, eventually winning by 5.5.-3.5 with an overall score of 11.5-6.5.
