A Car Trip To County Louth Golf Club


Ireland is known for its world class golf courses, making it a premiere destination for people who love the sport. With the sheer number of courses and the variety of game play, it would be a pity to limit yourself to visiting just one or two. Hiring a car enables you to visit a number of golf courses. You can rent a car at the numerous car hire agencies located in Ireland’s major cities and airports. Your car hire agency representative would be more than happy to help you plan your golfing vacation itinerary, giving you a list of courses you can see in each area as well as inns or hotels you can use as a base for your car travels. Your car hire representative can also provide maps to the cultural and historical attractions in the area, so you can see the sights between games of golf and sample some of the restaurants and bars. One of the popular golf courses in Ireland is Baltray. The scenery is not as dramatic as at other links courses, though the stretch from the 10th to 15th is particularly lovely. What it may lack in terms of view, it more than compensates with the kind of golf it offers. It is a very challenging course, even for those who consider themselves skilled at the sport. It has a variety of bunkers and the greens are tricky. The wind also adds to the difficulty of game play, though the gusts are not as strong as what you would find in courses located nearer to the Atlantic Ocean. Baltray Golf Course is well worth including in your itinerary when you take your car trip through Ireland. It is located in County Louth, and is a convenient car drive away from many inns and hotels.
