A meeting in 1918 marked the formal beginning of golf in Enniscrone and though like so many links, it has been extended, modified and improved, it quickly built up a justifiable popularity. Enniscrone is one of Irelands finest links golf courses set in scenic splendour in Killala Bay.
This championship venue provides golfers with the ultimate experience, dramatic duneland, an inspired design concept, superb greens all year round and breathtaking views. Originally designed by the great Eddie Hackett, Enniscrones reputation as a top class venue has been embellished with the addition of six new holes threading a path through the mountainous dunes. The new holes expertly designed by famous course architect Donald Steele, adds an exciting dimension to the 27 hole layout.
Adoption of the relinquished six holes together with the development of three new holes on adjoining land has provided the Club with a further quality nine hole course.
Carne Golf Links lies in magnificent unspoiled sand dunes overlooking Blacksod Bay, Achill Island and the wild Atlantic Ocean near Belmullet, Co. Mayo. It 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.
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 legendry islands of Inis Gloire and Inis Geidhe. The course is challenging in its 6,120 metres and is links at its wild and very best.
In 2005, Carne Golf Links was voted the IGTOA Course of the Year, and no. 28 in the world by Golf World magazine.
This outstanding Links course offers a genuine challenge to the accomplished golfer and is an all round ‘true’ test of Golf. Being one of the longest courses in Europe it is ideally suited to big hitters of the ball. Often described as the Muirfield of Ireland, it is similar in terrain with two loops of nine holes yet it is on a peninsula like the great Saint Andrews. The reputation of Donegal Golf Club designed by the legendary course architect Eddie Haskett, has been further enhanced by the new design of Pat Ruddy.
Continually featured in Golf Worlds Top 100 Courses in Ireland & Great Britain, this is a real challenge not to be missed.
Designed by Eddie Hackett, Connemara is a 27-hole traditional links course situated between the Twelve Bens Mountains and the Atlantic Ocean. The back 9 of this tough, challenging links has been described as “the equal of any in the world”.
The par 72 is rarely achieved on this most challenging Atlantic links. This could be influenced by the invigorating air and breathtaking scenery, but more probably due to the vastness of the last six holes. Greens set high on the hillside on the 14th and 15th can be unnerving, particularly after playing the most testing short 13th. Take time, however, to marvel at the splendid scenic backdrop of the Twelve Bens, etched against the skyline, or Ballyconneely Bay dusted with pure, white sand.
