Project Description

“Baltray is probably my favourite links course in Ireland….It’s just a great test – all the holes run in different directions so you have a different exam paper on each hole” Paul McGinley

Founded in 1892, County Louth Golf Club, or Baltray as it is more commonly known, has established itself as one of Ireland’s finest links courses. Winner of the 2017 IGTOA Links course of the year and host to two Irish Opens the course stands as a par 72 and measures 7,031 yards from the Championship tee. Whilst the championship course is one of the purest tests of golf, a variety of teeing options are available to ensure enjoyment for golfers of all levels.

Baltray is situated 4 miles from the historic town of Drogheda at the mouth of the river Boyne. With the river to the south and the Irish Sea to the east, this is Links golf at is very best, with only the muted murmur of a ships engine to break the sounds of nature, as it quietly winds its way up river to the port.

The golf course at County Louth is consistently ranked among the Top 10 courses in Ireland. Sometimes ferocious and other times benign, it provides competition for all handicaps. In today’s language it could well be described as “user friendly”.

County Louth Golf Club has a tradition of hosting major National and International events both Amateur and Professional, including the Irish Open in 2004 and 2009. It is currently host venue for the Irish Womens Amateur Open, the East Of Ireland Amateur Championship, and R&A Open Qualifying.
