Carne Golf Course

Carne Links Golf Course, Belmullet, Co Mayo

Carne Golf Links lies in magnificent unspoiled sand dunes overlooking Blacksod Bay and the wild Atlantic Ocean near Belmullet Co. Mayo in the west of Ireland. Carne was the last links course to be designed by the late Eddie Hackett and it is believed by many who have played it as his greatest 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.


Turasoireacht Iorrais (Erris Tourism) is a community owned and controlled company, which was set up in 1984 to develop and promote the tourism industry in the region.

As part of this development, the Company undertook the construction of Carne Golf Links on part of 260 acres of commonage, which it purchased in 1985.

The company engaged Eddie Hackett a well-known Irish golf links designer to lay out the 18 holes.The first nine was opened in 1992. Play began on the second nine in 1993 and the clubhouse was completed

Belmullet Golf Club was founded in 1925. Up until 1992 the Club played on a nine hole course at Cross near Binghamstown. At the invitation of Turasoireacht Iorrais, the club became the resident club at Carne Golf Links.
