Playing the Course
Located at Baltray, formerly a fisherman’s village at the mouth of the River Boyne, north of the medieval town of Drogheda, County Louth Golf Club was established in 1892.
County Louth is a ‘must play’ venue among golf aficionados testing their skills on the other world renowned links courses in Ireland.
The golf course at ‘Baltray’ is consistently ranked among the very best. Venue for the 2004 and 2009 Irish Opens and host of several major international amateur events, most recent rankings include:

The course has two nine hole loops. A remarkable feature of the layout as it winds its way through the dunes is that players seldom feel that any two holes play in exactly the same direction.
Gentlemen have the option of testing their skills from a number of different teeing areas, ranging from Championship Blue tees (7,031 yards) Medal/White Tees (6,716 yards) and the more benign Green Tees (6,338 yards), while the Ladies course, played from the Red tees, presents a strong challenge at 5,873 yards.
