One of Irelands top links course

A very fair links course with some top quality golf holes. Unlike other links courses in Ireland, blind shots are at a minimum. The greens were in excellent condition and running very true. Punishing rough and well positioned bunkers mean course management plays a bit part of scoring well on this track.

What a pleasant surprise

County Louth was a fill in to bridge our groups trip between Dublin and The courses in N Ireland. We wanted to play Royal County Down and needed another course to get us into the area and selected CL for this.

What a pleasant surprise as this was a very demanding and nice lead into what would be much harder courses. Like so many links style courses this also split the holes between the tough dunes areas and the flatter grounds away from the coast.

Make no mistake the dunes are very demanding and the layout seemed to channel more balls into fairway bunkers than other courses so you need to watch your line.

While there were a few goofy holes (3 in particular), the course provided a good test of accuracy off the tee. Failing this as you entered the dune areas was punishing. The greens were very undulating on many holes but in very good shape

All in all a good course that our group enjoyed and an excellent fill in for the start of the harder courses up north

Great Links

First on the course we got the best of the weather and were blessed for late November. Course was in pristine condition. Couldn't rate this higher, helped by the fact we got a deal for 33euro, I think it's normally 140 in the summer months. It is a lot and I'm not sure I could justify that. But all in all the day out we got was perfect. For the rain that has come the days prior to playing it could have been early September when we played it.

A Windless Irish Links

County Louth G.C about an hour north of the city right on the coast. County Louth (or Baltray to the locals) is an excellent layout totally exposed to the prevailing winds but on this day the wind was non existent.

The course is extremely fair with accommodating fairways bordered by calf high rough. Wider than that is deep rubbish that eats golf balls but it takes a pretty awful shot to be that wide.

The course opens with a medium length par four followed by a par 5 with a blind green. It gets more interesting after that with some great short 4's and a very good collection of par3's. The course heads off in all directions with only two consecutive holes playing in the same direction. The 14th is a super shortish 4 and the finishing pair make for a challenging end to the round.

The fairways were in good nick and greens putted well despite some renovations having been carried out recently. In one sense I felt a little cheated with the lack of wind but will probably be thankful for that by the end of this trip

Would play again, for sure.

Intriguing layout, casual feel, but challenging in the wind. Fun pub and restaurant make this a good destination.
