Great seeing Carne coming into it's own and should become a must play for visitors. Mulranney really takes you back to when golf was such simple fun and is a wonderful experience as is Cruit Island.
MarkYou sadly missed out on the Mulranny prologue. Just about as joyous as links golf can get. Simple, rustic and so, so endearing.
I'm excited to get back there and see the changes. When I first played Carne in 2019, I stood on (what I thought was) the first tee and aimed down (what I thought was) the first fairway ... and couldn't pull the trigger because I have never been so unsure of what I was looking at in all my years of playing golf. I waited until someone came walking by to start his back 9 and asked him which fairway was the 1st, and he laughed and said it was his first time there and he wasn't sure. He had just teed off, found his ball, and kept playing up the hole he was on. When I went back last summer, I still wasn't sure where I was supposed to go. Part of me wished they'd just commit to the Wild Atlantic Dunes routing and let the rest grow in. Or invest in much better signage. Because in several spots, it is very easy to find yourself playing the wrong hole on the wrong course.
Somewhere special.For those who were at the Carne Buda likely some memories. For those who havenít been a look at what you might find should you venture there.A YouTube piece by Kevin Markham - https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=2hXgYkcM7xg&t=686sEnjoy.Atb

I notice that the "Wild" 8th (Kilmore 5) has some mowing up the short cut to the green that wasnít there at Buda. How much of that route is mowed out at fairway height now? My experience with the "devil's elbow" (never finished the hole) would make me avoid future plays of an 18 that had that hole.
Can anyone see the picture in the last post? I briefly flashes on my screen then disappears. It has been a long time since I tried to post Flickr pictures, so I don't know what to do to fix.
