Carne Golf Links lies in magnificent unspoiled sand dunes overlooking Blacksod Bay and the wild Atlantic Ocean near Belmullet Co. Mayo in the west of Ireland. Carne was the last links course to be designed by the late Eddie Hackett and it is now believed by many who have played it to be his greatest challenge. The building of Carne has caused little disturbance to this wild and ancient landscape. Tees and greens occurred naturally and very little earth moving was involved in the course construction. Along the course are some breathtaking views over the Atlantic and the legendary islands of Inis Glóire and Inis Géidh

Hit this place on a cold windy day and all your following rounds will seem a cake walk. Happy I survived! Would love to try again under more tame conditions. It is tough playing when the gusts are blowing it off the tee, you have...More

In windy wet April this brilliant links course is a genuine challenge to any level of golfer, but set in the most idyllic setting amongst amazing mountainous dunes, wandering up and down undulating fairways and running down to a glistening sea, golf almost becomes secondary.....it...More

Extremely challenging links golf course. Very exposed and usually windy. A buggy is a must as the course is extremely hilly and tiring.
