At our recent AGM a motion to introduce pay and play membership was unanimously passed.
Under this new scheme pay and play members will pay €200 per year and pay €10 for each game they play.
For an additional small fee of €19 they can get a handicap and play in most club competitions.
It is hoped that the pay and play membership offer would attract back former members who for various reasons have dropped out of golf for the last few years.
This new membership option is also being targeted at members of golf societies. For further details contact us on 059 64 81350.
Baltinglass Golf Club has established itself as a course that knows how to look after the needs of all groups and society outings.
If you have a party of 12+ players and are interested in bringing them to Baltinglass Golf Club then why not email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone us on 059-6481350.
Every best wish to all our members for 2013!
