Having enjoyed the best courses in the West of Ireland for the past 6 years now – SM Links 2014SM Links 2015SM Links 2016SM Links 2017, SM Links 2018 & Links Challenge 2019 & Links Challenge 2020 – The 7th Annual Tournament of The Social Media Links Challenge will take place at 2 of the finest links courses in Ireland over 3 days when it tees off in late August. Carne Golf Links & Enniscrone Golf Club once again provide stern but very different golfing tests from Thursday 19th to Saturday 21st August 2021!

The opening Round of the 2021 Links Challenge will take place on Thursday 19th August at the spectacular Carne Golf Links’ Hackett Course. This Belmullet Beauty is a joy to behold, where you will experience some of the most scenic golf holes anywhere in the World – in fact it is like playing golf on the edge of the World!! Whoever leads after Round 1 will definitely deserve it.

Day 2 on Friday 20th August 2021 will take in the awesome Wild Atlantic Dunes Course at Carne Golf Links. Our competitors faced beautiful but windy conditions last August and we are hoping for more of the same come the 2nd Round next year but maybe with a little less wind!! This is one of the more remote courses in Ireland but as a result of that it has one of the most amazing locations for a golf course anywhere in the World!
