County Louth

Published by Golf’s Greatest Holes on 29 September 2021

Located in the historic Boyne Valley region on the East coast of Ireland, the County Louth Golf Club was founded in 1892. In 1938, Golf architects Tom Simpson and Molly Gourlay redesigned the course. A par 72, measuring 7,031 yards from the back tees, this championship links is known for providing one of the purest and fairest tests of links golf in the world.

Chris plays the 14th at a course Paul describes as the ultimate test of links golf. There are no bunkers on this hole but with the breeze coming off the Irish Sea, and a green with hidden humps and hollows, you have to be at your best to score par.
