The approach road to the links of County Louth, or Baltray as it is better known, named after the local fishing village, is especially uplifting. This is a course that has remained relatively anonymous, except to those in the know. It is one of Ireland’s best kept secrets.
The course is laid out in two loops covering some 190 acres with no two holes running in the same direction. However, the greens are County Louth’s hallmark – they are among the very best in the whole of Ireland. If you can avoid three putting throughout the 18 holes, you can happily honour yourself as a fantastic putter.
