New Members


There is a full programme of competitions at Carton House with the weekend competition a two day competition on Saturday and Sunday (single entry per member) and mid-week competitions on Wednesday. There are also a range of semi-open and open competitions throughout the year with details in your Carton House diary and on the Club website. Booking for competitions and all casual tee times is through the Club Website. 

Just to let you know that there is a waiting list facility on the booking site if you don’t succeed getting a slot at your preferred time for the weekend competition. 

Costs for Weekly Competitions 
The costs for entry into the normal weekly competitions is included in your Mens Club subscription.This obviously excludes any guest fees. 

Practice Facilities 
Carton House members have full access to the club practice range, chipping green and putting greens in front of the old house. There is a ball dispenser just before the arch at the side of the pro shop with tokens available in the pro shop (if balls are not already out on the range). 

Carton House members also have free access to the Golf Ireland facilities on production of their Carton House Golf Ireland card.

Our two club pro’s Harry and Seb are always available to book lessons with. Just reach out to anyone in the pro shop to enquire. 

Golf Trolleys 
Carton House members have free access to pull trolleys and again tokens are available in the pro-shop. Electric trolleys and golf buggies can be hired from the pro-shop. 

The Club issues newsletters on at least a monthly basis. These are sent to the email address which you provided. If you are having problems receiving the emails from us, please contact 

The newsletters provide updates on news relating to the club, including full details of results, teams and upcoming events.  Committee meetings take place on the second Monday of the month, and minutes are available to members only to view here (login required to access).

Minutes are typically published 5-10 after the subsequent meeting, where those minutes will be ratified. Members are also directed towards the club website which has comprehensive details of all things Carton House Golf Club.

Teams / Interclub
Carton House is an active participant in all the major Golf Ireland team competitions. Killian O'Flynn is the Interclub Team's Co-Ordinator, and he would sincerely encourage everybody to participate in the teams as a player or supporter. As new members, there is no better way to get to know fellow members and feel part of Carton House. Please feel free to reach out to Killian at if you want to get involved, participate or simply to enquire about the Interclub teams and events. Details of the teams and qualifying criteria are available on the dedicated web page here

Handicaps and Handicap Transfers 
If you are new to golf or have not been a member of a golf club last year, please complete 54 holes (18 holes or nines) on either of the Carton courses and put all the signed cards together in an envelope in the men’s competition box (for attention of HC secretary). If you are transferring from another club, just provide your details on the form (Liam McCool will have provided it to you) and send your cert to (or in envelope in mens comp box). Remember you can only be a home player of one club and it is your responsibility to ensure your handicap is set up and correct. The Handicap secretary Gerry Murray can only implement what is provided to him and he is more than willing to help in any way with any queries or issues in relation to handicaps. Gerry can be contacted at 
Carton House runs a number of social nights and again the costs for your attendance at these nights is included in your Men’s Club sub. 

Some events are with partners and some are stag. Again it’s a great way of getting to know other members and I can certainly assure you that in keeping with the ethos of the Club, formalities and “stuffiness” are kept to the absolute minimum.

Apart from the formal events, we would very much encourage you to drop into the Members lounge after your round for a tea or coffee.

Ladies Club 
There is a very active Ladies Club in Carton House and we both work together on a number of events and teams. If you are aware of any ladies who are interested in playing golf in Carton House please don’t hesitate to contact Liam McCool. 

Junior Club 
Carton House has a very active Junior Club with participation at all levels from the beginners to the handicappers. There is a full junior programme in place which seeks to nurture skills and enjoyment while encouraging respect for the game and for fellow golfers.

The Junior Club has been a successful academy for the Irish national teams and Carton House juniors have participated with great distinction at all levels of provincial and national teams.

The junior golf package is really attractive and again don’t hesitate to contract Liam McCool or the Junior Convenor, Austin Boyle or any of his team if you have any aspiring Rory’s or Leona’s at home!!!

Golf Etiquette ( A few little reminders) 

  • Members can only book in to one day of the weekend competitions
  • Members can participate in any of the weekend competitions outside the competition slots by entering as normal on the competition computer in advance of your round and returning a score card signed by a marker who is a member of the Golf Ireland post round. Completed scores to be entered into the computer as normal before 5pm on the Sunday of the competition 
  • The Carton Golf courses are big golf courses and it does take time to get around them, especially on competition days. We would encourage you to be patient if the pace of golf is sometimes slow and as a golfer we would strongly urge that you adopt Carton’s Ready Golf programme which is designed to cut down on unnecessary delays on the course and speed up the pace of play.
  • If you are unable to play in your booked slot, please cancel out of the slot as early as you possibly can and at the latest by 6pm on the day before your slot. ‘No-Shows” are an issue in every club and are something we as a committee take very seriously in Carton House. 
  • Please make sure to enter all relevant scores in the computer and place the card, appropriately completed, in the Men’s card box. Failure to return cards ( even if they contain a NR) distorts the calculation of the standard scratch on the day and makes the administration of the handicap system more difficult. 
  • In Carton House we have superb greens all year round. Let’s keep them that way. Repair the pitchmarks, replace the divots and rake the bunkers. We would encourage everyone to go that “little bit extra” because the Carton House golf courses are certainly worth it and deserve it!
