Golf Course/
Baltray

County Louth Golf Club, or "Baltray" as it is more affectionately known, is situated just four miles from the historic town of Drogheda at the mouth of the river Boyne.

The course is amazingly complex, covering 190 acres with no two holes running in the same direction. 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 wends its way up river to the port.

Designed by the world renowned Tom Simpson in 1938, Baltray has changed little since its original debut. In 2003, Donald Steel and Company made minor renovations that advanced the course's quality while maintaining its traditional charm.

Regularly rated as among the best courses in the world, and described by the US Golf Digest as a "hidden gem", Baltray is 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 also has a tradition of hosting major National and International events both Amateur and Professional including most recently European Tour's Irish Open, in 2004 and 2009.
