Nobody really wants to watch England v Tunisia this evening, right?

Instead, come along and lend a hand at the second 'spruce' up session at 6.30pm. Bit of weeding, divot replacement etc. Thanks again to all our volunteers.

County Armagh Golf Club Captain, Colm Shannon, is joined by Mrs Kathleen Mallon for the presentation of prizes in the Iggy Mallon Memorial Cup.

Friday 4 th May 2018 2pm shot gun start.

To mark the 125 th anniversary of the founding of Co Armagh Golf Club the Lady Captain Elizabeth Mawhinney in conjunction with the Ladies Committee and Captain Colm Shannon organised a “Vintage” 9-hole Ladies and Gents stableford competition (shotgun start) followed by afternoon tea. The event was kindly sponsored by the Vintage Bar and Lounge Armagh whose generous support covered the cost of the day's festivities.

Competitors were encouraged to dress in “vintage attire” and most Ladies and many Gentlemen went to great lengths to do so. While the vintage hickory shafted clubs donated to the club by Conlon Rice, were taken from their display cabinet, none of the competitors elected to use them. With a little imagination it might have been possible to recall the gentle thwack of persimmon against gutta perchas as the elegantly clad players graced the fairways in bright sunshine.

Very soon, the wisdom of wearing tweeds, petticoats and elaborate bonnets was called into question as the afternoon warmed up. Enough of the men.
