The Golf Courses

Carne Golf Links (Wild Atlantic Dunes Course)
Widely regarded as the late Eddie Hackett’s finest creation alongside Waterville Golf Links. Carne Golf Links was recognised in 2006 as the Highest New Entry in Golf World’s Top 100 Golf Courses.

The new “Wild Atlantic Dunes” course at Carne offers eighteen of the most spectacular links golf holes in Ireland, integrating the back nine of the original Hackett course with the new Kilmore nine holes, all of which are situated along the Atlantic Ocean, offering unrivalled golf with amazing views.

For many, Carne is regarded as one of the finest golfing gems in Irish golf. Located in the very North West of Ireland within an unspoilt stretch of land in County Mayo, Carne has fostered a reputation as to what links golf should be. It’s dramatic sand dunes that frame the holes are some of the most impressive seen anywhere in the world, providing an amazing venue for Round 1 of the Atlantic Coast HIO Pairs.
“Carne is, quite simply, the most stunning ‘discovery’ I have made in golf. Even the impressive reports I heard about the place hadn’t prepared me for the splendor of the terrain.”Dermot Gilleece, ‘Irish Times’

Enniscrone Golf Club (Dunes Course)
The golf course at Enniscrone Golf Club dates back to 1918. Starting out as a 9 hole links course, the course saw its fortunes and rankings dramatically improve following the work of Eddie Hackett who turned Enniscrone into an 18 hole course in 1974. Donald Steel went further in adding another 9 holes to allow for 27 holes of golf to be enjoyed within this natural links landscape. Enniscrone has been a regular within the Top 100 Golf Course rankings not only in Ireland (13th) but also within the UK and Ireland (63rd).

Considered by many to be located in one of the best areas of links land anywhere in the world, the terrain and dunes which frame not only the Championship Links course (Dunes) but also the newer 9 (Scurmore) make for a memorable visit and offers an amazing 2nd Round for all our pairs.
”Off the beaten track, probably the best course in Ireland” Shane Lowry

County Sligo Golf Club – Rosses Point (Colt Championship Course)
This world-famous golf course at County Sligo Golf Club offers an excellent challenge. The traditional links layout is over 100 years old, and boasts a magnificent backdrop of the Ben Bulben Mountain range. The Colt Championship course utilizes the natural contours of the dune-covered landscape creating a rugged feel throughout the layout. As a result, the course is filled with dramatic undulations, elevated tees, and raised plateau greens which combine together to create both a dramatic and challenging test of golf. A regular host to the West of Ireland Championship, County Sligo will provide a fitting finale to the Atlantic Coast HIO Pairs.
“Rosses Point is a gentle sleeping giant and one will marvel at its beauty, it can be a tremendous test for the highest quality player and great fun for the modest player, and stands at the top of great Irish courses”. Peter Alliss
