3 Clubs for 1 Sub - The committee in Baltinglass Golf Club is very happy to announce details of an alliance with Callan and Roscrea Golf Clubs.
This will give members in the three clubs a range of mutually beneficial playing options such as giving playing rights to alliance members, offering the same entry fees for open competitions to alliance members as ordinary club members and there will be a triangular tournament between the three clubs hosted in each of the three clubs once every three years.
Another objective would be that we all could learn from past achievements and mistakes.
