Tining and sanding of teeing areas will take place this week. The work is necessary to ensure the tees are in good condition for the 2017 season, and we will do everything possible to minimise any inconvenience.
Also, we shall soon be preparing temporary greens from which players will be permitted a free drop when not in play. (It is hoped to keep the use of these greens to an absolute minimum)
Your co-operation in accommodating the work is greatly appreciated.

SEVEN Hills restaurant group has officially launched its newest eatery at County Armagh Golf Club.
Restaurateur Joey Nixon announced the new partnership with the club at a special celebration event, unveiling a newly refurbished clubhouse restaurant and plans to promote his latest enterprise.
Joey said: “I am absolutely delighted to launch Seven Hills at County Armagh Golf Club. It's taken us a few months to get here - the restaurant received an extensive makeover, from floors to seating, colour scheme and new lighting. But it's now complete. And with our professional staff and menus all in place, we now have a special dining experience here to be enjoyed.”
With seating for up to 60, the Seven Hills Restaurant at County Armagh Golf Club is open for business.
THERE is perhaps, good argument the Fairlawns Residential Home sponsored stroke competition at County Armagh was lost by Pat McAleavey rather than won by Gareth Reilly.
15-handicapper Gareth did – deservedly - take the top prize, with a nett 65 score. But with a nett 65 also – and including three double bogeys to finish, Pat – a 19-handicapper - was surely the most unfortunate of runners up.
County Armagh Golf Club Captain Martin Oliver presents Gareth Reilly with his prize as winner of the Fairlawns Residential Homes sponsored stroke competition. Included also are runners up (from left) Pat McAleavey, Eamon O'Hagan, Andrew Miller and little Darragh Gillan who collected his grandfather's prize
Very best wishes to the Minor Cup Team captained by Anne McDonald and the Challenge Cup Team captained by Patricia Hughes who are representing Ulster in the National Finals of the AIG Ladies Cups and Shields match play competitions being held at Dundalk Golf Club 22-24 September.

The proud winner of the top prize, Sheila Stinson, had a magnificent score of 40 points.
COLM McElroy's suggestion that ‘lady luck' helped him win County Armagh's September Medal is perhaps a modest admission.
The 16-handicapper's nett 64 won the final medal competition of the season at the city course – on countback! For teenager Adam Cromwell – playing off a handicap of five - recorded a very similar and hugely impressive nett 64.

HENRY Lyttle he may be by name, but when it comes to winning at golf he's ‘Mister Big'.
In the F&K Smyth Restoration and Decoration sponsored stroke competition at County Armagh, the city handyman nailed victory with a superb nett 63, winning by two clear shots.
Five pars, three bogeys and a double bogey saw the 21-handicapper just five shots over par at the turn. And with a birdie, two pars, two bogeys, two double bogeys and a triple bogey recorded on the back nine, there was still sufficient shots remaining to register that impressive nett 63.
