Hackett's masterpiece

Carne Golf Links

“Ultimately there will be not better links course in Ireland, or anywhere” said the legendary Eddie Hackett after finishing what many agree is his crowning achievement, Carne Golf Links.

I tend to agree; never before have I played in sand dunes this wild, this huge, with such a collection of fantastic golf holes, one more stunning than the next, a full 27 of them.

The recent nine hole addition, the Kilmore, is still a bit rough around the edges, but they were in my opinion the most exciting and different holes at Carne. You should definitely play them. If you only have time for 18 holes, try to combine the Kilmore with either the front or the back of the main course. Or, at a bare minimum, walk out to the holes along the coast just to admire the view. You won’t regret it.
