Benign weather, excellent course conditions and the enthusiasm of County Armagh Golf Club's Ladies, all combined to allow extension of the playing season, and associated social activities, beyond the scheduled closure on the 4th October.
Following the completion of the 14 and 9 hole competitions on the 11th October, members Bernie and Gemma Rice gave a masterclass on Autumn flower arranging. Those present were greatly impressed by the skills on display, not to mention the entertaining delivery, and were further impressed when the arrays were distributed after a free raffle.
On Thursday, 18th, again following the 14 and 9 hole prizegivings, Lorna Berry gave an interesting talk on skin care and make up using Tropic products. Although none of County Armagh's Ladies required skin care advice or attention, all attendees enjoyed the presentation greatly.
