New "Local Rule" for County Armagh GC for 2017:
Accidental movement of a ball on a putting green
Rules 18-2, 18-3 and 20-1 are modified as follows:
When a player's ball lies on the putting green, there is no penalty if the ball or ball marker is accidentally moved by the player, his partner, his opponent or any of their caddies or equipment.
The moved ball or ball marker must be replaced as provided in Rule 18-2, 18-3 and 20-1.
This Local Rule applies only when the player's ball or ball marker lies on the putting green and any movement is accidental.
Note: If it is determined that a player's ball on the putting green was moved as a result of wind, water or some other natural cause such as the effects of gravity, the ball must be played as it lies from its new location. A ball marker moved in such circumstances is replaced.

County Armagh is a beautiful 18-hole course set in Georgian parkland with magnificent panoramic views of the historic City and its surrounding countryside.
The Club is one of the oldest in Ireland, formed in 1893 under the auspices of the Armagh Archery and Lawn Tennis Club. In that year it was generously granted the use of the land in the Demesne by Mr George de la Prev. Beresford, rent free. When the land – some 350 acres - was sold in 1916 to the Diocesan Council for a very reasonable sum, the club was granted an annual tenancy at a nominal rent.

The late 50's onwards marked the most progressive period in the history of the club, attributed mainly to the vision and leadership of two men, PG Toner and JE Maxwell. They had seen the pace of golf's development and realised that if County Armagh wished to take its place among the Championship Courses of the country it must move with the times.
