Welcome to Baltinglass Golf Club

30 December 2020 COVID-19 Update for ROI – An Taoiseach, Micheál Martin, announced the return of “full scale” Level 5 restrictions until at least January 31st in a bid to contain the spread of the Covid-19 virus. Unfortunately, this means that the Golf Course and practice areas are required to close with immediate effect until 31st January.
Whilst we will all miss our golf over the coming weeks, our priority now is the safety of the wider community. The course is now closed. The course greens staff will continue to work on the course for the time being, as this can be done safely and in keeping with HSE and GUI guidelines and advice this situation will be kept under ongoing review. The club office remains contactable by phone on 0872509929.
We will update you as best we can over the coming weeks regarding further developments, and appreciate the cooperation of all members at this difficult and unprecedented time. In the meantime we wish all our members, staff and their families well – we hope you stay safe and healthy and look forward to meeting in the club again when life returns to normal, as it inevitably will.

90 years after its inception, Baltinglass Golf Club could be said to have come of age. The addition of a new nine holes to the existing course has complemented an already outstanding facility. The striking beauty of the countryside cannot but impress a visitor to Baltinglass Golf Club. Looking down towards the town the former Presentation Convent and the Church stand out.
Nestling in the Slaney valley stands the ruins of the Cistercian Abbey, founded by a group of Cistercian monks from Melifont on lands granted to them by Diarmuid McMurrough, High King of Leinster in 1148. The abbey became the focal point of learning and activity until it’s suppression in 1541. The lands comprising of 59,000 acres included several castles and water mills. The golf course stands on part of the lands, which were owned by the monks.
