Honours Record

PennantsHaving been founded in 1912 one could be forgiven for wondering why it took the Club until 1921 to win its first inter-club pennant. However, inter-club competitions were not too common in the early part of the twentieth century. 

Also, World War 1 slowed down the development of the game of golf. Having got off to a slow start, the Club still managed to capture no fewer than nine Barton Cup titles by 1968, easily the best record of any club in the history of this popular and highly valued, Leinster inter-club competition. We went very close to capturing our 10th title in 2015 when we had to settle for the Runner-Up spot.
In 1969, we won our first pennant for a 'singles' match play event when our Junior Cup team took the provincial title, which we were to win twice more.  

Although other titles were to follow, including four Metropolitan Cups, a  Pierce Purcell Shield and two Irish Mixed provincial pennants,  the major breakthrough undoubtedly came in 1973 when the Club won its first All-Ireland green pennant, achieved by our Irish Mixed Foresomes team. Surprisingly, the Club was to wait another thirty-five years before it triumphed again at national level in 2008, winning the Jimmy Bruen Shield, a feat that was to be repeated in 2010.

Since the turn of the century the J.B. Carr Senior teams have had a purple patch, winning six pennants, while the Junior boys and girls teams took seven between them. In 2011, it was the turn of the Ladies to fly the flag which they did to good effect by winning the East Leinster - Intermediate Cup. They repeated the feat in our Centenary Year in 2012 and we also won the McDonnell Cup and O'Grady Cup pennants for the first time. 

In 2013 we achieved the double when both our Fingal Seniors teams, men and ladies, managed to win their respective competitions and in 2015 we recorded our second win in the O'Grady Cup Mixed.

With one of the smallest eighteen holes golf courses to be found in Europe and with limited practice facilities, Clontarf has still managed to produce competitive teams which have won forty-seven adult, and eleven junior, pennants and shields.These achievements bear testament indeed, to a proud Club with a proud tradition.
