Ulster Press Golf Society's Tournament at Ardglass Golf Club


Ardglass Golf Course is an 18 hole links course set on the north-east coast of Ireland boasting stunning views and very unique golf holes. Each year the Ulster Press Golf Society hold a tournament which Jack Murphy Jewellers proudly sponsor.

What a glorious day it was for the tournament of 50 players at the oldest clubhouse in the world! Unfortunately, due to covid-19 some players were missing however there was still a great turnout in the summer sun with visibility so clear the Isle of Man could be seen!

Ardglass kickstarted the day with coffee and breakfast rolls to fuel the members for the busy day ahead before heading out to complete the 18-hole tournament. There were a total of 13 prizes provided by Jack Murphy Jewellers, these included 1st prize which was a wine decanter along with 4 red wine glasses and 4 white wine glasses and a bottle of red and white wine, 2nd prize which was a wine decanter along with 4 white wine glasses and a bottle of white wine and a special prize for the closest 2nd shot to the 18th which was a Cluse watch.

Following the tournament guests enjoyed a dinner, providing the perfect opportunity to catch up and discuss the tournament. Jack Murphy Jewellers would like to say a special thanks to George Martin, Alan Clements, John Haughey and Paul Vaughan for having us as sponsors and all of the catering and bar staff for their hospitality.
