County Louth Golf Club, Baltray
County Louth Golf Club, "Baltray" as it is more affectionately known 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 its 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.
Rated in Golf Digest's top 100 courses in the world as a "hidden gem". It is one of the top twenty five courses in the British Isles and it is in the top six in the island. Sometimes ferocious and other times benign, it provides competition for all handicaps. In today's language it could well be described as "user friendly".
