From the M1 motorway (approx 35 km north of Dublin) take the Drogheda exit (not Drogheda South) and follow direction Drogheda Centre. After 2.2 km at traffic lights by bus terminal (Bus Eireann) turn left. After o.2 km bear right over bridge and continue straight on at traffic lights. After o.6 km at top of hill turn right at Termonfeckin sign (sign is just after the turning !) direction Termonfeckin / Clogherhead and continue on this road (R166). After 7.5 km in Termonfeckin, opposite Waterside Inn, turn right direction Seapoint Golf. After 1.3 km turn right into golf.
Seapoint Golf Club: For a few holes as you start out at Seapoint you may be wondering what will come next. Holiday bungalows and water seem to dominate the early holes rather than seaside links and sand dunes. But no need to worry, at the par-5 6th you'll head out towards the sea and into the authentic links environment; however you'll need to wait until the closing three holes for some breathtaking sea and distant Mourne Mountain views.
The course itself contains its fair share of very good links holes and others that are as difficult as they come - driving lines and landing areas not too clear and ball-grabbing rough encroaching very close to the greens. In the wind this can be a real brute, but on calmer days Seapoint affords one of those pleasant links excursions to be found on so many Irish courses.

PGA Championship: the first men’s major of the year will be contested at TPC Harding Park, without spectators being present (Aug 6-9).
European Senior (Staysure) Tour: the Europe-based over-50s tour for men has taken the reluctant step of cancelling the entire 2020 season, based on the additional coronavirus risk associated with the age demographic of the players.
Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
Cullen Links Golf Club: "immensely scenic", "quirky as golf can get", "short!", "hugely enjoyable" ... Cullen Links attracts as wide a variety of comments as it lays down golfing challenges. Shoehorned into this 4,600 yard treasure trove are ten par-3s, seven par-4s and a good-length par-5. Here you'll find all the seaside scenery a golfer could ask for, and a lot more besides.
