Carne was the last links course to be designed by the late Eddie Hackett and it is now believed by many who have played it to be his greatest challenge and achievement.

The building of Carne has caused little disturbance to this wild and ancient landscape. Tees and greens occurred naturally and very little earth moving was involved in the course construction. There are some breathtaking views over the Atlantic and the legendary islands of Inis Glóire and Inis Géidhe.

"But for those willing to search out and discover what can only be called one of Ireland's last true hidden gems, ...Carne will reward them handsomely. " - David Brice of Golf International, Inc. Published on

"Carne is absolutely brilliant. Front nine, back nine — every hole, every hill, every inch of the place is simply special.” - Tom Coyne,

Local Knowledge
  • We believe Carne rivals the great courses like Ballybunion and Lahinch, not just because of its raw natural links terrain but the price. A round of golf at Carne is unrivalled anywhere in Ireland in value for money.
