The Carne Golf Links is home to the Belmullet Golf Club. In 1992 the Belmullett GC moved from its 9-hole links at Cross Binghamstown to the spectacular new 18-hole (now 27-hole complex) at Carne Golf Links, the last links course to be designed by the late Eddie Hackett. Carne Links, created to attract tourism to this isolated and stunningly beautiful part of western Ireland, is owned and operated by a community-run company called Turasoireacht Iorrais Teoranta.
