County Armagh Golf Club
County Armagh Golf Club is a true gem, located in the heart of Georgian parkland, providing panoramic views of the historic City and surrounding countryside. Established in 1893, it is one of the oldest clubs in Ireland, and since its inception, it has undergone several renovations to become one of the best parkland courses in the country.
During the club's most progressive period, additional land was acquired in the Demesne, which extended the course from 9 to 18 holes. The design of the new 18 holes was entrusted to Don Patterson, the Warrenpoint professional, and Alan Smith, a course architect. Since then, major alterations have taken place to the 2nd and 18th holes, and further improvements have been made to the greens and tees.
The course's landscaping has matured over time, with free-standing oaks, chestnuts, beech, and ash trees lining the fairways, leading to superb greens that are defined by lush floral displays, which blossom beautifully in spring and summer. Each hole features a different layout, requiring a variety of shots to challenge and delight every golfer, regardless of their handicap.
The course's par of 70 and length of 6043 yards are a testament to the designer's expertise, H. Swann. The Club has hosted major amateur and professional golf championships, showcasing its reputation as one of the finest golf courses in Ireland.
