Men - News & Results

As its title might suggest, County Armagh Golf Club’s Half Century Cup is battled for by those whose 50th birthday has been and gone. Emerging victorious from this experienced coterie in a tournament sponsored by Rumour Cafe on 2 August was Neil Linton.

The Lonsdale Cup represents one of the most eagerly anticipated events in the County Armagh Golf Club calendar. With an August position on this term’s fixture list rather than its usual slot of early June, members had to wait with bated breath for that little bit longer.

For obvious reasons, the commencement of the various inter-club matchplay tournaments has been delayed this season and, indeed, many will not happen at all.

One-hundred-and-sixty-eight players contested a stableford competition at County Armagh Golf Club on 25 July but no one could match the heroics of winner, Roger Duggan.

Since succeeding long-serving Honorary Secretary Paddy Burns at the beginning of 2020, John Lowe has had the unenviable task, along with other key club officers, of guiding County Armagh Golf Club through the coronavirus crisis. However, amid the many hours spent on that sterling administrative work, John has clearly not allowed his golf game to suffer.
