Welcome to County Louth Golf Club

More affectionately known as ‘Baltray’, a links course of the highest pedigree which is currently ranked the among the top 5 courses to play in Ireland.

Located in the historic Boyne valley region on the East coast of Ireland, our award-winning golf club is extremely well located: 45 minutes from Dublin Airport and less than an hour from Dublin city centre. Furthermore, Belfast International Airport is located approximately 90 minutes away.

Founded in 1892, our club is steeped in history and has attained a reputation for producing some of Ireland’s greatest golfers over the years. In 1938 Golf Architects, Tom Simpson and Molly Gourlay redesigned the course. A par 72, measuring 7,031 yards from the back tees, our championship links is known for providing one of the purest and fairest tests of links golf in the world. For professional golfer and former Ryder Cup Captain Paul McGinley, this is his favourite links course in Ireland, remarking: “It's just a great test. All the holes run in different directions, so you have a different exam paper on each hole”.

In 2004 and 2009 County Louth Golf Club hosted the European Tour’s Irish Open. On the latter occasion, the club was etched into Irish golfing history when it famously became the venue where 2019 Open Champion Shane Lowry won the Irish Open as an Amateur.

The village of Baltray is renowned for its golf course but can also be enjoyed for its exhilarating air and panoramic views of the Cooley and Mourne mountains to the north and its six-mile-long beach over the course sand dunes.

Over the years our club restaurant has become highly regarded for its famous local dishes especially the fresh seafood which is sourced locally from the fishing trawlers in nearby Clogherhead. Also, we are one of the unique golf clubs in Ireland to provide accommodation within the clubhouse.

As a club we look forward to welcoming you to Baltray, we would like to extend a very warm welcome to all our guests who come and enjoy our links and hope you enjoy your experience with us.
