In Their Words ...........
Set hard against the Atlantic Ocean on Scotland’s west coast, the award-winning Machrihanish Dunes shares breathtaking views and a majestic dunescape with the neighboring Machrihanish Golf Club, a world-top-100 course laid out in 1879 by Old Tom Morris himself. More than 100 years later, renowned present-day golf course architect, David McLay Kidd, realized a longstanding dream to build a second course and added to the number of Scottish links golf courses at Machrihanish Dunes.
This “new” course, situated on pristine linksland protected by the Scottish government, offers you a rare opportunity to create and craft golf shots just as the men of Scotland did centuries ago, when they conceived the game, brought it to birth – and gave it to the world. Machrihanish Dunes encourages thought, creativity and imagination. For the golfer who accepts the invitation and the challenge, the reward is a truly unforgettable experience.
In Scotland, true links golf courses are not created, they are born of the land. More than 130 years ago, Old Tom Morris recognized the potential for great golf here in this rugged, romantic corner of Scotland, saying: “The Almichty Maun hae had gowf in his e’e when he made this place.” The ever-changing linksland at Machrihanish Dunes gives you a rare opportunity to create and craft golf shots you might never have imagined playing before. Machrihanish Dunes encourages thought, creativity and imagination. For the golfer who accepts the invitation, the reward is a truly unforgettable experience.
The 7,082 yard, 18-hole links course flows effortlessly to, from and along the sea, inviting you to step back in time to the days when Old Tom Morris laid out the neighboring links and Willie Campbell plotted the Machrie Golf Links on the nearby island of Islay – visible from Machrihanish Dunes. The fairways upon which golfers tread are just as they were found, only mown shorter.The 18-hole journey features no less than six greens and five tees at the ocean’s edge. Highly trained course guides and caddies will be your accomplices as you make your way through your round. You would do well to heed the advice they offer!.
The Golf House at Machrihanish Dunes Golf Club offers a respite to gather, refresh and relax right at the course itself. Enjoy snacks, homemade soups and sandwiches as you rest up for that next nine, or meet up with friends before experiencing one of the top courses in the United Kingdom.
