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 (also known as Seapoint Golf Links): this enjoyable seaside course on Ireland's east coast, sits directly above the highly regarded links of County Louth Golf Club (aka Baltray).
For a few holes as you start out at Seapoint you may be wondering what will come next. With holiday bungalows beyond the course, and a good-sized water ditch dominating the early holes, this Des Smyth layout may not be quite what you'd expect of a classic duneland links. Things change at the the par-5 6th, as you head out towards the sea and into an authentic links environment. However, you'll need to wait until the closing three holes for some breathtaking seascapes and distant vistas onto the Mourne Mountains.
The course itself contains its fair share of excellent 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 of Ireland's seaside courses.
