On the West Coast of the Kintyre Peninsula, stretching alongside the Atlantic and the wide windswept beach, Machrihanish Golf Club is a true Links Course. More than 130 years ago, Old Tom Morris said of the land here: “The Almichty Maun hae had gowf in his e’e when he made this place.” ! (i.e. The Almighty Man had had golf in his eye when he made this place" !)
The land that the course was built on has been largely undisturbed, with only a few changes made to form the tees and the greens. This is a challenging course where you can experience Links golf as it was originally played.
It is reputed to have the best opening hole in golf, and the 1st tee is marked as such.
The 7,175 yard, 18-hole links course.
