The first weekly prize-giving of the 2022 golfing season for ladies took place at Co Armagh Golf Club on Thursday 24 March with a great turnout in the clubhouse.
Welcoming everyone, Lady Captain Karen Edgar, said it was great to see so many ladies back out playing as the inter-club team draws had been released and team captains would be looking for players. She updated ladies on the format for the Cowdy Cup with 3 matches being played at home and away at the same date and time and thanked Barbara Hamilton on agreeing to be joint captain with Julie McCarten. She advised that Co Armagh had been drawn against Dungannon in the first round, to be played by the end of June.
A ladies get into golf programme was scheduled to commence on Tuesday 31 May with 6 weeks coaching by Co Armagh’s PGA Professional Will Carey. The cost for the programme, which provided an opportunity to give golf a go and to learn in a relaxed fun environment was £100. To register or for more information email
