Seapoint Golf Links, Ireland

By Kevin Markham.
Seapoint offers two distinct sets of holes, right next door to Co.Louth Golf Club. Indeed, Seapoint’s closing holes could easily be an extension of the great Baltray links as they back on to each other.

The front nine play over sedate terrain, where trees border the course and fairways glide smoothly between low, rolling shoulders of dunes. Gorse plays its part emphasising the importance of accurate driving and the doglegs have to be respected. The turf is tight and while it doesn’t quite feel like a links, this is exactly what it is. The back nine ramp up the temperature, introducing the shapes and subtleties that make links golf such fun. The closing four holes, above the beach and through the biggest dunes, are a delicious finale. The 15th and 17th are gorgeous par threes while the par five 18th streaks straight towards the clubhouse and tees off beside the beach.

Favourite Hole:
The par five 18th is straight but the lone tree on the left of the fairway has a way of pushing you too far right. It’s a birdie opportunity if you get the drive away.

What’s in the Bag?
The variety in hole shapes and sizes requires a smart golf brain off the tee.
