Bagenalstown Pitch & Putt Club was founded in 1963 and is a affiliated with the Pitch & Putt Union of Ireland. The current grounds was once a 9 hole golf course but now is home to our pitch and putt course. We were awarded the course of the year in 1994. The course is graded at a Provincial standard by the Pitch & Putt Union of Ireland. The club is situated in the McGrath Park Sports Complex which also houses the local football, hurling, camogie, cricket, tennis and soccer clubs, located on the outskirts of the town in the townland of Dunleckney and is 15 minutes from Carlow, 20 minutes from Kilkenny and 1 hour from Dublin. The club composes of 18 holes with various lengths from 32 metres to 70 metres and various altitudes which provides a challenge for even the top senior players. The course will reward those who are accurate off the tee. The course is 853 metres long spread out across 5 acres so there is plenty of room even if the odd shot does go astray. The current course record is held by Seán Downes (Stackallen) with a score of 40 (-14), which he shot for his county Meath at the 2008 Leinster Inter County Championships, the last major championship held in Bagenalstown.
