Machrihanish Golf Club

Course Description:

machrihanishMachrihanish has become well known in the last few years mainlybecause of its exceptional first hole which requires the round's opening shotto carry the Atlantic. It is a tough start, particularly into a breeze. The course is set in wonderful dunes in the small village of Machrihanish, which is situated on the western side of the remote Kintyre Peninsula; this is where the sky is big, the sunsets are dramatic and the air has been warmed by the Gulf Stream and its relativeinaccessibility has saved it from becoming more commercialised. It is a joy to play and, most of the time, very quiet, allowing the visitor to relish the ups and downs of the fairways and the tussle with undulating greens. There are also arresting views across to the islands of Jura and Islay, which provide a delightful backdrop on an idyllic summer’s day with the firm Machrihanish turf underfoot, the majesty of the dunes, and wheeling seabirds providing the only sound. It is a varied test for the competent golfer, the layout is not just a predictable nine out, and nine back.
