    Located on the east coast of Ireland, just a 50-minute drive north of the capital Dublin is County Louth Golf Club, known commonly as Baltray. While the golf club was established in 1892, it wasn’t until 1938, when the golf course designed by Tom Simpson and Molly Gourlay opened for play. In 2003, Tom MacKenzie modernised the golf course with the most notable addition being new tee boxes which lengthened the golf course to current standards. County Louth is consistently rated in the Top 10 Golf Courses in Ireland, including #8 by Golf Digest. The Baltray Golf Club is situated in the historic Boyne Valley region just north of Drogheda, adjacent to the Boyne estuary, occupying prime links land; it is a favourite among amateurs and professionals alike.

    Course Description

    Baltray Golf Course is laid out over prime unspoilt links land next to the Irish Sea. The Golf Course famously hosted The Irish Open in 2004 and 2009, where 2019 Open Champion Shane Lowry won The Irish Open as an amateur. The golf course offers towering sandhills, testing rough and a variety of golf holes that demands accuracy from tee to pin, with a great deal of strategy required. The golf course is famously one of Ireland’s pure links golf courses that provides a fair test of one’s golfing abilities.


    The County Louth Golf Course is long by links standards at just over 7,000-yards. The length, combined with fairway and green undulations, as well as greens protected by deep pot bunkers creates the necessity for distance control. The greens are Baltray’s standout hallmark, with contours, tiers and runoffs wreaking havoc on visiting golfers. The golf course is playable by golfers of all levels with six separate tee boxes bringing down the overall length. County Louth is one of Ireland’s great links courses and has earnt its place among the east coast’s top courses which includes Royal County Down, The Island and The European Club.
