Found just outside of the town of Drogheda in North East Ireland in County Louth is this eponymous golf club and its golf course. Dublin can be found to the south of the course and is around 2 hours away by car. The course and club can be found in the small village of Baltray near to the coast and the Irish Sea.
Although the club was founded in 1892 the course as we know it was opened in 1938 and the original 18 holes were laid out by the infamous golf course architect Tom Simpson. This links course sits in a large area of prime links land and has a lot to offer to both members and visitors of differing skills and styles. The course has played host to a number of championship events throughout the years, most notably the Irish Open on two occasions.
This 18 hole course is a fine example of a links and measures 6141 metres from the medal tees. It has a fair par of 72 and a slope of 135. The course is laid out in two loops of nine and the surrounding sand dunes that define links courses provide the basis for many of the features here. Expect the typical weather and natural environment to play an important role in the relative success or failure of your play here. This is sure to be an enjoyable course that will be a challenge for many.
The facilities at the County Louth Golf Club are as extensive as they are unique.

Average rating obtained byThis rating for County Louth Golf Club. is the average of 2 ratings obtained from www.golfshake.comCourse is extremely fun to play. The back 9 is really outstanding. Each hole changes dramatically from 100 yards and in, it is almost like playing two different holes. Greens were fast and true and in great shape. I would not pay full price, just on principle, so go find deals on the internet. (Round played: Aug 2014 - Score: 90 Handicap: 13.7)

Quite simply a brilliant golf course. Holes offer great variety with some you can see being typical strong tour pro standard par 4s. It is tough so play the right tees. Very welcoming clubhouse.
