County Louth Golf Club is also affectionately known as ‘Baltray.’ It was founded in 1938 in the village of Baltray Co Louth, 4 miles east of the historic town of Drogheda.

County Louth Golf Club is just an hour’s drive north of Dublin. Situated at the mouth of the river Boyne, there can be no doubt that with the river to the south and the Irish Sea to the east this is links golf at its very best.

The course is laid out in two loops covering some 190 acres with no two holes running in the same direction. The only exception being the 12th and 13th which run along the sea. At a length of almost 7,000 yards, Baltray is certainly not short, but when you consider the natural hazards of the links game combined with blowing winds and heavy rough, it becomes a difficult, though immensely enjoyable golf.

 

Highlights

All the holes run in different directions, posing a particular challenge to golfers.

Facilities

The team of qualified PGA professionals offer first-class coaching and club fitting. There is also a pro shop.

Food & Drink

The club restaurant is well known for its famous local dishes especially the fresh seafood, which is sourced from the fishing trawlers in nearby Clogherhead.

Things to do

For your time in Dublin, you will most likely be based in Portmarnock, less than 15km from Dublin City Centre, or in the City Centre itself. This gives you easy access to the abundance of options available to fill your non-golfing time. From the Guinness Storehouse to Kilmainham Gaol, or Dublin Zoo to the National Aquatic Centre, there is something for everybody.

Around 45 minutes north of Dublin city, en route to Co. Louth Golf Club, lies Newgrange Visitors Centre. Located at Donore, this centre is designed to present the archaeological heritage of the Boyne Valley, which includes the megalithic passage tombs of Newgrange and Knowth. Visitors to Newgrange and Knowth must begin their visits at the Visitor Centre, and access is by guided tour only.
