There's a nice description of County Armagh in 'Destination Golf' magazine's rundown of Ireland's top 150 courses 2018. I think most of us would agree with the "card-wrecker" line! 😊

"From the clubhouse you will get an inkling of the sort of golf course you'll be playing. Gentle swells, heaving trees, fine routing ... they all combine to make this little known course a very worthwhile destination.

"At times you'll be amazed by the setting because this is on the edge of Armagh city, yet many of the holes are completely immersed in trees and peacefulness.

"County Armagh is also old and, on this landscape, that means big mature trees and holes gliding between them. There are water features, but not too many, and the finishing stretch is what is affectionately known as a card-wrecker."

We feature on page 145 of the magazine, which can be found here:
