Golfing On One Of Ireland's Oldest Courses
The Club is one of the oldest in Ireland, formed in 1893 under the auspices of the Armagh Archery and Lawn Tennis Club. The Club was generously granted the use of the land in the Palace Demesne. 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.
In the late 1950’s additional land was acquired in the Demesne to extend the course from nine to 18 holes with the security of tenure a 40 year lease.
Throughout the Georgian Demesne, free-standing oaks, chestnuts, beech and ash trees line the carefully manicured fairways, with testing bunkers, leading to superb greens, many of which are defined by lush floral displays which blossom beautifully in spring and summer.
In 1993 County Armagh Golf Club celebrated its centenary. Its course has fulfilled the dreams of the visionaries and hosted many Provincial and National Championships.
