I played three courses in the area and Machrihanish Dunes was by far the best. Words (at least mine) can't describe how beautiful the course is. I must have taken 100 photos. Every hole looked so natural and it made you feel like you were playing 150 years ago with Old Tom Morris. I played 3 rounds at the course... More

I am writing this somewhat after the fact but that in no way clouds my memory of what a great, fun course Machrihanish is. We played a number of courses in Scotland and Machrihanish was far and away the best bargain and the equal of any of the others for links type golf. Don't pass up the chance to play... More

Have played over 40 courses in Scotland and this ranks with the best. Well worth the trip to the Peninsula, and easy to combine with outings at other nearby courses.

This is a challenging and fair golf course with one of the most memorable first holes. We played a two tournament rounds here and all agreed it was an excellent test of skill. There were perhaps too many blind shots for the first round, but once we had the hang of it, we much preferred it to Macrihanish Dunes -... More

There's much more to this Old Tom Morris Golf Club than the treacherous opening drive over the Atlantic Ocean -- the course becomes more beautiful and challenging as you move from hole to hole. The wind will blow, the rain may fall, but you'll love every moment.

My son and I tee'd off here on a wind and rain free summers day. The staff in the pro shop were very helpful and friendly. The course is a challenge and was in really good condition. The first tee with it's shot over the beach to the fairway is one of the great opening shots in golf. After your... More

I doesn't get much better than this (or so my husband tells me). I carried his bag over the most beautiful course I've ever walked.

Came for a holiday in late July and booked daily golf lessons for the children. Uncomplicated, reliable - and Steve was a great coach. Would definitely go back.
