County Louth Golf Club
The East Coast of Ireland has many hidden golfing gems. Thus, one more note is the County Louth Golf Club or “Baltray” and opened its doors for play in 1938.
Overall, Just an hour’s drive north of Dublin, you will find Baltray Co Louth’s village. Also, just a short four-mile drive away from the historic town of Drogheda.
The mouth of the Boyne is where the southern part of the golf course is located. With the Irish Sea to the east. This ranks amongst some of the best Links courses on the east coast.
The course covers 190 acres with all 18 Holes running ins different directions. Hence, on a windy day, you can be tested more than once or twice during your round. The 12th and 13th holes are only exceptions and both run parallel to the sea. At nearly 7,000 yards. Indeed, Baltray is undoubtedly is no short course. Taking into account all of the natural hazards and prevailing winds. Unquestionably, it is an excellent test of golf for golfers of all abilities.
Hence, highly recommended. This is certainly a great addition to Ireland Golf and the likes of Portmarnock Golf Links. The Island and Portmarnock golf club.
The Championship Links hosted the European Tour’s Irish Open in 2004 and 2009. On the latter occasion, when it famously became the venue where 2019 Open Champion Shane Lowry won the Irish Open as an Amateur, the club was etched into Irish golfing history.
