PELHAM—Ballantrae Golf Club is celebrating its 10th anniversary with a week-long celebration filled with “10” themed specials and activities, from June 9 through June 15.

All week, both members and guests will enjoy $10 off of green fees. Members will also get 10% off of merchandise and pay a specially-reduced $10 cart fee.

“Saturday is our big day,” Assistant Golf Professional Jonathan Pritchett said.

In the morning from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. on June 14, members and guests can improve their game with free “10-minute golf tip” lessons from Ballantrae professionals. At lunchtime, Ballantrae will serve a $10 “all-inclusive” lunch buffet. And there will be an all-day longest putt contest on hole 10, the winning golfer will get a special prize.

The 10th anniversary is an exciting one for the golf course and will be celebrated with “quite a few” original members who have been with the club since it opened in 2004.

Ballantrae was named the “best new affordable golf course” by Golf Digest and one of the “top 50 courses for women” by Golf for Women Magazine in 2005. The club features an 18-hole course with five different tee settings for various skill levels and a 20 acre-practice facility.
