The persistent rainfall – which carried on from where the preceding week's hefty snowfall left off – didn't exactly hint at the arrival of spring-like conditions at County Armagh Golf Club.
Nevertheless, both the reintroduction of an 18-hole course and the sight of a sponsor's name on the weekend fixture list did at least indicate that the start of the full competitive season isn't too far away.
The Four-Ball Eclectic on Saturday 10 March was kindly supported by DS Refrigeration Ltd and saw one particularly deadly quartet keep their cool to leave their rivals feeling the chill.
Jonathan McKnight, Derick Hynes, Stephen Catterall and David Leeman have been no strangers to individual awards in recent years.
Four-Ball Eclectic competition sponsor Declan Slevin of DS Refrigeration, along with his son, presented prizes to Stephen Catterall and David Leeman from the winning team, and Gary McAleavey from the third-placed group. Also pictured is County Armagh Golf Club Captain, Colm Shannon.
Don't forget about the 9-Hole ‘Masters' Par 3 Ladies & Gents Stableford on 6th April. Now in its 3rd year and 2nd year of sponsorship from Iron Designs

County Armagh Golf Club launch Kids ‘Golf Future Stars' programme
As part of their 125th anniversary celebrations, County Armagh Golf Club has launched a ‘Golf Future Stars' programme for kids.
It may be hard to believe but today marks the beginning of spring! The beast from the East and Emma have ruined another weekend's golf but hopefully this marks winter's final icy blast. All being well we hope to have the full 18 holes open next weekend 10 th March – although the 16 th will still be a winter green for another few weeks.
It might be snowing but some of us have been enjoying Will's coaching sessions out at the Hillview Driving Range. Hopefully we will see the benefit with some low scores in the coming weeks!
Best wishes also to Lee Campbell who has taken over in the shop as Will's new Assistant. I am sure you will join me in wishing Lee a long and rewarding career in golf.
