Golf Course/
Carne

West of idyllic Enniscrone, on six kilometres of Erris Peninsula coastline is Carne Golf Links, one of the most classic links in Ireland. Since opening in 1992, Carne Golf Links has earned recognition as one of the most prestigious links golf courses in Ireland.

Rough and rugged in the classic manner of all great links land, this charming 18-hole course is packed with yawning chasms, high dunes and deep hollows. Its holes manoeuvre around the natural placement of the dunes, not daring to disturb the natural beauty of the landscape.

The course heads inland after the first hole, and the 6th hole is considered by many golfers to be the most brilliant. This hole requires an intensely accurate drive before arriving at a dome-shaped green with a narrow entrance.

The view from the 11th tee is absolutely picture perfect. In fact, it often distracts golfers from the difficulty of the dog-legging 11th hole. The 12th doglegs the other way. These short holes require utmost concentration because anything short, right, or long will roll down to the bottom of the hill.

Built by a local tourism initiative, Carne is the last course to benefit from the genius of famed designer Eddie Hackett. 6,119 metres of fairway overlook dramatic views of Blacksod Bay, Inis Geidhe and Inis Gluaire Islands – the type of sight that can only be found on an Irish links course.
