Spanish Point used experience and home advantage to retain the Munster Country Clubs Cup on their home course this afternoon.  Early wins from Niall Heaney and Cillian Duggan set the tone in their final against Castlegregory, and while the Kerry side fought on bravely, two more wins from Fergal Hehir and Micheál Hehir were enough to seal the win for the home side

Earlier in the semi-finals, Spanish Point beat Lismore while Castlegregory beat Berehaven.  First played for in 1932, the competition was originally known as the Inter-County Challenge Cup.  Limited to nine hole golf clubs, the format is singles matchplay with teams of seven golfers.  It’s Spanish Point’s sixth time winning the championship, and next year they will have a chance to emulate their three in a row from 2012-2014.
