Owner description: 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

“Links Golf”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

This is probably the hardest links course I have played, but it is well worth a visit. Suggest buying a strokesaver guide to help find your way around the course as many blind shots. Views are spectacular and it is well worth the journey to get there (about one and a quarter hours from Enniscrone). The weather forecast for the day we played was awful, but when we got there the sun was shing and played the last nine holes in shirtsleeves - so do not rely on the forecasts as the weather on the coast can change quickly. This course is a must for the experience and fans of links golf.

“Two day trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Excellent course with good facilities - see my review for the Broadhaven hotel - but you must play this course twice. Swing easy and enjoy.
