June 18 th 2016 was certainly a day to treasure for the Honorary Treasurer of the Ladies Branch of County Armagh Golf Club Jacqueline Kelly who was the overall winner on Lady Captain's Day.
There was a great turn-out on the day and everyone enjoyed the lovely condition of the course and the beautiful weather as they competed for one of the fabulous paintings Lady Captain Una had commissioned from her very talented artist niece Ms Orla Cullinane.
Pictured with the Lady Captain Mrs. Una Cullinane are the winner Mrs. Jacqueline Kelly, the runner-up Mrs. Sheila Stinson and the other prizewinners
Only a couple of days left until the guys embark on 4 rounds of golf in one day in County Armagh Golf Club. Damien Smyth, Patrick Brannigan, Declan Quinn and Marty Daly will be heading out at first sunlight to ensure that they get the four rounds played hopefully before nightfall on Thursday 23rd June 2016!
Damien Smyth – Chief Organiser of the four-ball stated – “ I would like to thank everyone who has supported us to date through sponsorship and County Armagh Golf Club for hosting our challenge. We will be playing as fast as possible on the day and would welcome any support out on the course on the day to keep us going. Macmillan do great work throughout the UK and we are trying to raise as much funds as possible for Macmillan to help towards the great work that they do on a daily basis”

All players please note the following Rule change for 2016: Clause 4.5(c) has been amended.
The maximum increase in handicap permitted in a calendar year will now be one shot above the lowest handicap achieved in that year. i.e. A player whose handicap starts at 10.4 may only increase to 11.4. If that player’s handicap is reduced at any time during the year (say from 10.4 to 10.0), the handicap may then only increase to 11.0.
Due to some problems with our new software a small number of handicaps have inadvertently been allowed to increase beyond this limit and we are currently working with the provider to rectify the same. In the interim we would ask players to be aware of your correct playing handicap, making the Handicapper aware if it has increased by more than 1 shot within the year.
A BIRIDIE at the par five 12 th will be the defining hole which Joseph McElroy will remember most about his victory in the Henry and May White Memorial Open at County Armagh.
And rightly so - for that score proved the difference when he and John Mawhinney each returned scores of nett 65 and needed separating on countback.
Sponsored by Philip White Tyres Ltd, the annual competition was once again a major attraction for local golfers and visitors. And in excellent weather conditions, top scoring on a superb course was at a premium - just two shots separating the top seven.
17-handicapper Joseph however, produced the steadiest of rounds to lift the coveted silverware.
