The Society was recently re-launched under new Captain, Brian McCabrey and on 4 September 2009, Lurgan Golf Club was host to the Club’s first ever Golf Classic.  A total of 37 Four-Balls graced the fairways competing for an array of excellent prizes. St Peter’s Club is most grateful to sponsors, players and supporters for making the day such as success.  The Golf Classic will now become an annual event. 

The Society has elected a new captain for 2010 - David Greene.  A number of outings have already been booked.  Further details will appear here later.  It is also intended that this section of the website will keep those interested up-to-date on further developments of the Club’s Golf Society.
