PAUL Quinn kicked off his 50 th birthday celebrations at the week-end by collecting the Hirsh Cup at County Armagh Golf Club.
The trophy is one of the oldest in the club's collection and perhaps a fitting presentation for the half-century milestone being marked by the 17-handicapper who produced a superb nett 65 to win the competition played for annually and sponsored by Cormac Knott's NetStretch Limited Web Design Agency.
The Hirsh Cup is presented to Paul Quinn by Cormac Knott from Netstretch Ltd, sponsors of the annual stroke competition at County Armagh Golf Club, and Club Captain Martin Oliver. Included also are category prizewinners Brendan Beagan, Eamon Toner and Shea Smith
COUNTY Armagh Golf Club's Juvenile Captain Lee Campbell is certainly planning to lead by example after winning the first Medal competition of the new season.
Lee, playing of a handicap of 10, returned a nett 65 to collect the coveted Club Medal. A level par front nine which included birdies at the 5 th and 8 th holes, was backed up with a five-over-par back nine for that winning nett 65 score.
A shot behind in runners up spot was Caolan McBride, a 21-handicapper, who will otherwise have been very happy but for the triple-bogey 7 at the par 4 17 th hole.

MARTIN Grimley won the first silverware of the season at County Armagh Golf Club.
The 17-handicapper was the deserved winner of the magnificent CP McNabb Trophy.
An outstanding 45 points, with a birdie 3 at the par 4 17 th hole, secured Martin the win on countback with 11-handicapper Martin Daly, who also returned 45 points.
After nine holes, Martin had amassed a superb 23 points and with a further 22 from the homeward trek, his 45 points won the day. Ironically Marty Daly's front and back nine scores were exactly the same as Martin Grimley's – on countback however, he lost out to the birdie.
ADAM Hunniford and Vera Ellingham will represent County Armagh Golf Club in the Rory McIlory promoted competition for a chance to play in the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open Pro-Am.
