County Louth Golf Club
County Louth Golf Club is situated in the historic Boyne Valley region just north of Drogheda. Perched along the mouth of the Boyne estuary and within a 45-minute drive from Dublin Airport it is also within a 1 hour drive of the city of Dublin.
At a length of almost 7,031 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 course. Some of the finest holes at Baltray include the difficult par four opening hole; the long par five 3rd, which requires a blind shot over a knoll onto a small green; the par five 6th, which leads through a valley of dunes to a green hidden behind two hills; the par four 14th, which requires a drive from an elevated tee to a fairway almost 200 yards away; and the majestic closing hole, complete with some malicious bunkering.
Baltray is a family club. There are the Connolly’s, Gannon’s, Garvey’s, Lyon’s and the Reddans, to mention a few, whose commitment dedication and foresight have brought worldwide recognition to the club.
Baltray is not just a great golf links, it is a great Golf Club.
