A hidden gem to most visitors Baltray is held in high regard by Irish golfers.
It requires accurate drives and will test the short game of any handicap golfer.
Natural hazards of a links abound at Baltray, blowing winds and heavy rough eaves very little margin for error.
The #3 hole, a par 5 over 544 yards, has a blind third shot over a hill onto a small green
The #6 hole, another par 5, which leads through sand dunes to a green hidden behind two hills
The #14 hole has a spectacular high tee box to the fairway 190 yards away.
The #18 hole is guarded by nasty bunkers.
A course to remember…
