Dunshaughlin Pitch & Putt Club was founded in 1971 and the land leased and later purchased outright in 1988. It is a non profit organization maintained by volunteers with help from FAS and is affiliated to the Pitch and Putt Union of Ireland. There were 37 adult and 37 juvenile members in 2013. We maintain an 18 hole par 3 course. Juveniles age 8 – 15 (inclusive) and non members can play games on payment of daily green fees of €2 for juveniles and €5 for adults.

 

More than thirteen hundred games were played by visitors who paid green fees in 2013. The club provides a pleasant enjoyable facility for local residents and particularly for children and teenagers during the long summer holidays. 

 

The club runs competitions for members every Sunday of the year at 1030am and in Summer/Autumn runs fun games on Tuesday evenings. From May to August Juveniles are coached and competitions run on Monday evenings. New members are always welcome and beginners will be coached by members.
