Reflecting on the 2015 Atlantic Coast Challenge
The Atlantic Coast Challenge 2015 has finished for another year. Played from 6-8 July, some 130 teams played the Irish golf links of Carne, Co. Sligo and Enniscrone, in counties Mayo and Sligo. They sit rather majestically on the Wild Atlantic Way.

There were many highlights, with the courses being the stars of the show, but what is most noticeable about this glorious corner of Ireland is that you should never believe the weather forecast. Never, ever, ever.

Five years ago, when I played in the inaugural Atlantic Coast Challenge event, I chatted to Pat Sweeney, the then General Manager at Enniscrone. Under clear blue skies, I commented that the weather forecast had predicted relentless rain. The response was a laugh and a pertinent observation that those forecasting the weather in Dublin didn’t have a clue about what was going on in the north west.

And so it proved this year… for some of the time. Those golfers going out in.

The Wild Atlantic Way
Jun 04 Posted by Rosemarie Mangan in Carne Golf Links Blog

Some say that the Great Ocean Road in Australia is the
world’s best touring route. Others say it’s South Africa’s
Garden Route, or Route 66 in the USA. All over the world,
there are many driving routes that are scenic, breathtaking,
or challenging. But only a handful can claim to be all of the
above! Surely, Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way fulfils the brief.

The Wild Atlantic Way is the world’s longest defined coastal touring route. It stretches over 2,500km, from Co. Donegal to Co. Cork, and takes in the unspoiled, rugged west coast of Ireland. Officially launched by Tourism Ireland and Fáilte Ireland in 2014, the Wild Atlantic Way has gained a great deal of interest overseas and also here in.
