On Thursday 17 September, sixty-six ladies played in the annual McAnerney’s Charity Open Stableford Competition which was once again very generously sponsored by McAnerney’s Supermarket, Armagh.
Restrictions prevented the normal coffee morning from taking place, however the sponsor, Mrs Catherine McAnerney organised refreshments outside the Pro Shop for golfers as they headed onto the course. A fantastic £1,200 for Newry Hospice and £700 for Brain Tumour Research was raised.
