Carne Links golf course was first opened in 1992 and can be found in the tranquil seaside town of Belmullet, County Mayo, Ireland. County Mayo is home to more than 10 golf courses, making it an ideal destination for any keen golfer, and although it is not often the first place you’d think of for golf in Ireland, many who have visited have named it Ireland’s golfing gem. It takes approximately 4 hours to drive to Belmullet from either Belfast or Dublin, as it is located on the western side of the country.
The course was designed by the late Eddie Hackett, the celebrated Irish golf course architect, and it is often described as his crowning achievement.
The 18 hole Championship course has a par of 72 which twists and turns over 6119m of stunning landscape, with each nine eventually finding its way to the clubhouse. The area boasts some of the largest dunes of any golf course, and fantastic views of the Atlantic Ocean.
Green fees for this course are very reasonable throughout the year although an increase should be expected during the high season. The club is able to offer various pieces of equipment for hire, including caddies, golf buggies or trolleys, clubs and strokesavers.
The course has three practice greens, for putting, pitching and chipping, along with a more recently built 9 hole course which also known as the Kilmore course.
Whether you’re simply looking for a light lunch or a three course meal, the Clubhouse restaurant can provide it all with its prize winning head chef, John Comby, who won Chef of the Year in 2005. Aside from the restaurant, the club provides lockers for players and there is a pro shop on site.
Weather is as expected in Ireland, although the area receives much less rain than other parts of the country, thus normally providing good golfing conditions.
Hotels and B&Bs are readily available a short distance from the course, and you can find them to the left hand side of this page, along with reviews from other customers who have visited this course, and the packages we have available with the course are available here.

Carne Golf Links31/07/2013this review is the subjective opinion of a GOLFBOO user and not of GOLFBOO S.LI am on the road playing all 45 eighteen hole links courses in Ireland. This although not often mentioned is one of the spectacular ones. Its a fantastic ride through some of the largest dunes you will ever encounter on a true golf links. You have to get to the 11th tee box before you get a view of the Atlantic,once you get there its a real WOW of a view. After you take the view in you then have to negotiate a drive through two massive dunes with the hole dog legging to to the right to a raised green, a spectacular golf hole. 12 through to 15 are a sheer joy to play and if the wind is up, bogeys are great scores. A golf course that must be played at least once in your lifetime. I have played it twice and will be back.Pat f

Average rating obtained byThis rating for Carne Golf Links. is the average of 45 ratings obtained from www.top100golfcourses.co.ukBrilliant mad golf course. Stayed in Donegal so it was approx. 3 hour drive to the course. The last hour of the drive was through stunning terrain which added to the experience. Very welcoming club. Decided to hire a buggy which I believe was the right decision especially when navigating the back 9. The front 9 is good, the back 9 is great. The scenery and elevation changes are breathtaking. In all the madness there are some well designed strong holes. The 18th is wild. Absolutely worth the journey. Ive played 70+ GB&I links courses and this is in the top 5 in terms of memorability.
