Native son Eddie Hackett was asked to lay out this lesser-known course, part of the Belmullet Golf Club, in large part in order to attract tourism to this economically challenged but scenic part of northwest Ireland. After his work was done, Hackett was well pleased with what turned out to be his last design, stating that he felt "thrilled with the way the dramatic Belmullet Course has turned out," and expressed confidence "that ultimately there will be no better links in the country, or, I doubt, anywhere." Hackett's two nines together offer a nice contrast: the front nine are set off the beach within sight of Blacksod Bay, and the back are actually threaded among the dunes by the sea. Careful shot placement is necessary to escape being faced with blind tee shots, and to negotiate the formidable doglegs. Given the topography, many players will opt to rent a cart.

Ein sehr anspruchsvoller Golf Course direkt am Meer. Selbst bei Sturm und Regen ein Erlebnis.
