This hidden gem is deeply respected in Ireland, but little known elsewhere. The course is laid out in two loops with no two holes (apart from two) running in the same direction (watch the wind directions). It speaks highly for the course design that only fifty bunkers were introduced in the course's defences; the rest was taken care of by the natural terrain. The course demands accurate driving and an inspired short game. It may be the most intelligently bunkered course in Ireland, and each slick and undulating green presents a unique challenge. County Louth is a Championship links that can be enjoyed by every category of golfer.
