Machrihanish Golf Club
Machrihanish has become well known in the last few years mainly because of its exceptional first hole which requires the round's opening shot to 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 relative inaccessibility has saved it from becoming more commercialised.
Machrihanish offers a world class 18 hole links course and also a 9 hole course.

Mach Dunes Golf Club
MOKRUN's Half-Marathon route features part of this world-class golf course. 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 7,175 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 routing, as well as the positioning of its tees and greens, was dictated by the lay of the land – and the presence of several endangered species of flora and fauna.
Machrihanish Dunes is the
only course ever created on a Site of Special Scientific Interest
(SSSI). Because of the fragility of this pristine coastal environment
and in order to preserve for all time the unmatched natural beauty of
the site, the course was built and will be maintained with the lightest
touch possible. Of the 259 acres on which the course sits, only seven were disturbed during the construction of the course. Only
the tees and greens were shaped. The fairways upon which golfers tread
are just as they were found, only mown shorter.
