CarneThe beautifully natural Carne Golf Links is widely regarded as the late Eddie Hackett's finest creation; high praise indeed considering the much revered Waterville further down the West coast is also among his projects. Carne was recognised in 2006 as the Highest New Entry in Golf World's Top 100 golf courses and since then it has gone from strength to strength, becoming one of Ireland’s best links offerings; and yet, rather puzzlingly, this remarkable links, set in atmospheric isolation on County Mayo’s Atlantic coast, often goes unnoticed by golfers visiting the Emerald Isle.
