COUNTY Armagh Golf Club welcomed its many sponsors to its course and clubhouse recently.
Hosted annually, ‘Sponsors Day' is an opportunity for the club to say ‘thank-you' to those local businesses and individuals who have supported the club – financially and otherwise – during the year.
Upwards of 40 sponsors and their guests played the course in a stableford competition before enjoying a sumptuous evening meal with wine. Prizes for this year's event were kindly sponsored by @Seven Hills Restaurant.
Speaking at the evening presentation, County Armagh Captain Richard Stewart said: “Sponsors are the life-blood of any club – especially in the current climate – and their support is very much appreciated.”
Lady Captain Gail Steed added: “County Armagh have a large, vibrant Ladies Section – one of the largest outside of Belfast, and is the envy of many of neighbouring clubs – our sponsors are very much a part of our success and for that we are very thankful
“We also really appreciate that many of our sponsors have been very loyal sponsors over a number of years – in addition this year we have managed to secure a number of new sponsors – and we really value their contribution.”
Sponsors Convenors' Gerry Kelly and Elizabeth Mawhinney were also praised for their efforts.
