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: this enjoyable seaside links course on Ireland's east coast, sits directly above County Louth Golf Club (Baltray), its more renonwed links cousin.
For a few holes as you start out at Seapoint you may be wondering what will come next. Holiday bungalows and a good-sized water ditch 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.
