Latest News

Following the government announcement of further measures to reduce the threat from the coronavirus (Covid-19), the GUI and ILGU have advised that all golf clubs, practice facilities and courses shut down with immediate effect until 19th April next. While golf is an outdoor sport that allows players to exercise in the fresh air, the message from the experts is clear – People must stay at home to help to contain the spread of COVID-19.

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.

A lighter moment

At these difficult times it is important to look forward. It is only a little while ago we were celebrating the Captain’s Drive. Here is a little video made up of some of the photos.

Let’s all look forward to the course reopening and the next celebration.

    About Us

    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.
