Yes, I know that sounds like a cheap commercial, but seriously... Carne folklore is growing by the day.
Never mind building a new nine holes (the Kilmore Nine, review here
) for €200,000, the golf club is now offering fourballs next year for €100 for 18 holes (or €140 for the full 27). €25 for one of the most thrilling courses you could ever hope to play...

A brute of a hole that measures 200 yards
The club is offering 100 slots between April and October 2014, and you have to book online. The email I received goes like this:
If you are planning to play Carne Golf Links during 2014, why not take this fantastic opportunity to book now at rock bottom rates.
To celebrate the opening of our spectacular new Kilmore 9 holes, we are offering 100 slots (available now, online only) from April to October 2014:
o €100 for a 4 ball 18 holes. Savings €140
(Choice of Hackett 18 OR Kilmore 9 & Hackett back 9)
o €140 for a 4 ball 27 holes. Savings €160
(Hackett 18 & Kilmore 9)
(See available slots at approx 9am on most week days)
This offer will end on 14th October 2013.

It's worth noting that closing day of the 14th October. If you're in America, I'm guessing this offer is impractical, but for anyone in Ireland or the UK, this could easily go down as 'too good to miss'. I'd plan a week's golf around that, no bother, and play at Carne three times at least... I learn so much every time I play it and Irish golf doesn't get any bigger than this.
