We played County Louth on the Thursday and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The course was in great condition and provided a challenge to all of us despite the difference in handicaps (from 7 to 21). The course itself was very quiet and is certainly is a hidden gem. The 18th is one of the best finishing holes I have played as well. There don’t seem to be any week holes and when the wind gets up it can play a lot longer than its yardage may suggest. As expected the staff in the clubhouse were extremely friendly and the food was good too. Highly recommended!

Having remained generally unknown outside the world of Irish golfing fanatics, County Louth falls into the category of the hidden gems. Better known as Baltray, the golf course was founded in 1892, but was subject to 1938 changes by Tom Simpson.

County Louth Golf Club
The course as it is now owes thanks to the 2003 redesign by Tom MacKenzie, which has propelled it over the 7,000 yard mark, and back into the realms of modern day championship golf. This should see more tournaments added to the East of Ireland Amateur, won by Darren Clarke in 1989.
There are no weak holes around Baltray, and with holes running in every direction, visiting golfers must tackle the wind from all angles. The hallmark of County Louth is the quality of its putting greens, which are widely asserted to be among the finest in Ireland. Though not well known, County Louth is a phenomenal experience, best enjoyed as part of a golf tour around Dublin and the east coast.
