Glof Digest ranked Mach G.C. #57 in the world a few years ago and well-deserved! The "Old Course," as the locals call it (it is next door to the newer Mach Dunes golf club) was designed in the 1860's by Old Tom Morris. It is...More

You must play this course if you get the opportunity. From the 1st hole that plays over part of the Atlantic to the general conditions of the greens and fairways, I can't fault it whatsoever. I was a bit tired after playing the dunes course...More

This is a true test of links golf. 17 of us recently attended on a golf outing and every single person loved it here. Starting with the best opening hole you are challenged on every hole. The course was beautifully manicured. A must play for...More

Super location. Course in decent condition. Carries from the ladies tees need to be looked at as they seem somewhat unfair and not very welcoming for visiting golfers.

Machrihanish is an old 18 hole course, which is highly rated. If your drives are not straight then expect to lose several golf balls as the rough is tough! Great views over to America. It's a three hour drive to get there from Glasgow or...More

This is a historic course that should be on everybody's life list to play. Starting with arguably the finest opening drive in golf anywhere, we played this links on a relatively benign day. Because of its design there are some blind shots and it definitely...More
