Golf Course/
Machrihanish

It requires a deal of commitment to reach the southern tip of the Mull of Kintyre to seek out the wonderful links of the Machrihanish Golf Club, but it is a journey that will never disappoint.

Here lies one of the really great treasures of Scottish golf; a course laid out on classic links ground that Old Tom Morris was designed by the Almighty for playing golf.

Old Tom made what must have been a long and tiresome journey from St Andrews to lay out the course in 1879 and his work has comfortably stood the test of time ever since.

What joy there is to stand on the first tee at Machrihanish a look across the bay and the carry to the fairway that on what many believe to be the finest opening hole in Scottish golf.

The course is set in wonderful dunes in the small village of Machrihanish, on the western side of the remote Kintyre Peninsula. It is a joy to play and very quiet, allowing the visitor to relish the fairways and undulating greens.

Arresting views across to the islands of Jura and Islay provide a delightful backdrop on an idyllic summer's day. It is a varied test for the competent golfer, the layout is not just a predictable nine out, and nine back.
