Overview
More
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

Beautiful setting, rugged and raw, weather can be wild, lots of blind shots, great challenge, runs alongside the Atlantic ocean, wonderful scenery, though greens a bit patchy. Let down by inexperienced staff. Green keeper ignored our group and left flag out as he mowed, ruined...More

Really friendly helpful people. Course is in a fabulous setting, and it appears the surrounding area has been untouched. Good value for money. But a long way to travel .

If you die and go to heaven it will probably be like the back nine in Carne. A great mix of holes that provides a genuine test of golf all set against a striking maritime panorama.
