Men - News & Results

Following last season's enterprising campaign, which was halted only at the provincial final stage, County Armagh started out on the 2019 All-Ireland Four-Ball Trophy road with a first-round clash against Clogher Valley.

With Tim Teahan having vacated the captaincy hot-seat after a couple of very productive years at the helm, new skipper Colm Shannon took his crew to Fivemiletown for the first leg on Sunday 7 April. A 4-1 reverse would ensue here but, as they concluded halfway proceedings a mere six holes down, County Armagh's hopes of progression remained very much alive.


Indeed, such belief proved justified seven days later, when Colm's charges turned in a dominant second-leg performance in the Cathedral City.

County Armagh Golf Club's two-day Easter Stableford event on 20-21 April was contested in conditions much more akin to a favourable June or July, a fact that produced no complaints from any golfing quarter.

But it was Rodney Lynas who capitlaised most fully on the warm sunshine, dry terrain and last early-season knock off the green markers to seal outright victory.



It seems like a lifetime ago now given the delightful summer-like reality of the week and a half since but, during County Armagh Golf Club's penultimate weekend of non-qualifying competition on 13-14 April, brass monkeys could be spotted stalking several of the city fairways.

County Armagh Golf Club joined in with the spirit of Augusta by hosting a 9-Hole Masters competition for Ladies and Gents on 12 April, which was kindly sponsored by Iron Designs, Armagh. Paul McKeown from Iron Designs helped Club Captain, Kenny Edgar, to present the prizes to winners (L-R) Paul Kelly, Jarlath McReynolds, Paula McCrory and Kieran Donnelly.

Magnolia Lane was replaced by Lady Anne's Walk. The patrons were mere punters. The victors had to be content with vouchers for the Pro Shop (where Will stocks high-quality jackets of various shades). The presentation ceremony was conducted not by CBS's Jim Nantz but by CAGC's very own anchorman, Shea Brady. And the closest we have to Tiger Woods is a near namesake in the form of Adrian or Oliver.

The forward tees and preferred lies currently in operation undoubtedly boost the potential for formidable scoring at County Armagh Golf Club.

The gloriously sunny and calm conditions on the weekend of 6-7 April, then, merely lent an extra helping hand to those competing for the CP McNabb Trophy.

However, the good golf still has to be played, and leading the way in this regard was new member Ryan Runnette, who posted 21 points on each nine to fend off all comers and clinch the first silverware of the embryonic 2019 season.
