About Us

Carne was the last course designed by the legendary Eddie Hackett and many say he saved his best work until last.  The new 9 holes, an Ally McIntosh/Jim Engh design, based on the original vision and sketches of Eddie Hackett for the most dramatic part of the dunescape at Carne, is now integrated with the back nine holes of the original Hackett course, providing a new integrated course routing  – “The Wild Atlantic Dunes” course.   This course routing is being hailed by golf commentators as the finest example of natural links golf in the world.  Rated at number 12 in Ireland, it is arguably the most spectacular links course in Ireland, raw and untamed, with increased drama as the holes weave their way through the awe inspiring corners of the dune system, and is arguably the biggest dunes course in the world.  Carne offers traditional raw links golf at its very best in a truly unique and idyllic golfing location, an experience not to be missed.

The two course routings, Hackett and the Wild Atlantic Dunes, are each played on consecutive days, and therefore most golfers now stay for two days to experience both course routings. We also offer 27 holes in one day.
