Machrihanish Golf Club
Machrihanish Golf Club is situated on the Kintyre Peninsula 140 miles by road from Glasgow. Our superior natural 18 hole golf course is well known throughout the world, voted to have “the best opening hole in golf” by golf architects and players and listed in the top 100 golf courses outside the USA by the Golfer’s Digest.
Machrihanish Golf Club , created in 1876, has established itself throughout the world as a first class natural links course. Described as “specifically designed by the Almighty for playing golf” the course presents golfers with a challenging and spectacular opening drive across Machrihanish Bay. Little has been changed to disturb the natural scenic beauty and inspiring challenge of this delightful course.
The outward nine holes follow the hills and hollows among the sand dunes bordering the Atlantic. Each hole requires accurate tee shots and carefully chosen irons to reach the expertly maintained putting surfaces. The inward nine holes are no less demanding as they stretch back home against the backdrop of the Kintyre hills. With the variable strength and direction of the wind, the course can provide a completely new challenge each time it is played.

Machrie Golf Course is best described as a course designed by God, not man, where nature is your challenger. The course was originally laid out in 1891 by Willie Campbell who believed it was “the best ground for a golf course”, and the course remains very much the same today as when Willie Campbell first constructed it all those years ago. This it is a traditional link course where you’ll get back to the roots of the game, be fascinated by the natural hazards of the course, and be enchanted by the spectacular scenery.
