Balt­in­glass Golf Club is now firmly es­tab­lished as one of the finest Park­land cour­ses in Le­in­ster. The course is playable all year round but re­ally comes into its own in the sum­mer months where the ex­per­tise and hard work of course su­per­in­ten­dents Martin Done­gan, Ea­mon Do­herty and the many vol­un­teers is show­cased.

Golfers travel from all over the coun­try to ex­pe­ri­ence the unique mix of golf holes, where no 2 holes are alike.

It of­fers a mix of ma­ture tree lined fairways, wan­der­ing deer, the water fea­tured par 3 se­cond hole and our fa­mous first hole which is famed far and wide as one of the finest open­ing holes in the coun­try.

The club is ex­tremely pop­u­lar with so­ci­eties and the num­ber of re­turns year af­ter year is tes­ta­ment to the qual­ity of the course and the friend­li­ness of the wel­come re­ceived. Given its mod­est green fees Balt­in­glass is with­out doubt one of the best value cour­ses around.

The com­mit­tee and mem­bers are con­stantly rein­vest­ing and im­prov­ing the fa­cil­i­ties. Next year a mas­sive drainage pro­ject backed by the sports cap­i­tal grant scheme will com­mence.

Balt­in­glass Golf club are of­fer­ing full mem­ber­ship for new mem­bers for €650 plus GUI / ILGU fee and a fan­tas­tic of­fer for peo­ple un­der 35 at €450 plus GUI / ILGU fee.

A Pay & Play op­tion is also avail­able for €220 plus GUI / ILGU fee. New mem­bers are be­ing ac­cepted for 2019.

All mem­bers are en­cour­aged to in­tro­duce one new mem­ber. This will be a huge ad­van­tage to build­ing the Clubs mem­ber­ship and pro­file. Strat­ford Lodge Restau­rant at Balt­in­glass GC The Restau­rant and Bar in Balt­in­glass GC is un­der new man­age­ment. Book­ings are be­ing taken for chris­ten­ings, com­mu­nions, con­fir­ma­tions, wed­dings, fu­ner­als and cor­po­rate events.

For Jan­uary and Fe­bru­ary the restau­rant will be open for break­fast and lunch on Fri­days, Satur­days and Sun­days. You will be given a warm wel­come on ar­rival.

For fur­ther de­tails con­tact Barry or Clare on 085 8433267 or 059 64 81350. They will be de­lighted to dis­cuss your needs.

Fol­low­ing on from a very suc­cess­ful 90th an­niver­sary year the in­com­ing cap­tains Martin Hen­nessy and Lil Flynn are look­ing for­ward to an ac­tion packed year in 2019 and would like to take this op­por­tu­nity to wish all our mem­bers and friends in neigh­bour­ing clubs a very happy and healthy Christ­mas and New Year.
