We played here in early May. Unfortunately for us the wind was very strong when we were there, gusting up to 40 mph and almost unplayable at times. We are all reasonable golfers with low teen handicaps but sadly we were not good enough when it mattered. Would like to play it again in better conditions

A great old traditional links course - a Classic which you must play. When we visited in mid May the greens weren't in so good condition after a tough Winter so it might be good to call ahead (the greens on The Machrie on Islay were in great condition the day after)

What a hidden gem. We got to play this great unknown course twice. It was windy and cold one day and less windy the next. We had the captain of the club as our caddie both days. Without him we could not have played the course. The scenery is spectacular and the course sublime. There are a lot of blind... More

The Machrihanish Golf Course is a must play on any links lover's list. Out and back at its finest on the Kintyre Peninsula. The opening hole ("Battery") is one of the finest opening holes world-wide in links golf, measuring 427 yards and challenging any big hitter to bite off more of the beach. The remainder rolls northward through the dues... More

Whilst there are a lot of blind holes so on your first visit you are Hitting and Hoping, especially in the Mist which often rolls in as per Paul McCartney song. Right now the condition could be better after a poor winter according to locals, there is a lot of GUR, and to be fair they reduced the green fees... More

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
