Carne Golf Links in North Mayo on the West Coast of Ireland lies in magnificent unspoiled sand dunes overlooking Blacksod Bay and the wild Atlantic Ocean. Carne Golf Links was the last links course to be designed by the late Eddie Hackett and believed by many to be his best and his greatest challenge. A staggeringly beautiful links on the wild, west coast of Ireland, this course is was opened in 1993, but looks as though it's been there for centuries. The size of the dunes is eye-popping.
This 6700 yard links isn’t a simple in and out affair by any means. Each nine winds its way back to the clubhouse with holes that snake up and down through the dunes in all directions. As with any coastal course, the wind plays its own part. On a calm day you might play close to your handicap, but when the wind is up, hold on to your hats!
