Machrihanish Golf Club
Machrihanish Golf Club is situated on the Kintyre Peninsula very close to Campbeltown airport. The superior natural 18 hole golf course is well known throughout the world, voted to have “the best opening hole in golf” by golf architects and players and listed in the top 100 golf courses outside the USA by the Golfer’s Digest.
There is also a nine hole golf course with a Ladies Clubhouse and 2 practice areas. The course presents a spectacular opening hole, large sandy bunkers, neat fairways, tough rough and greens of the highest standard.
Little has been changed to disturb the natural scenic beauty and inspiring challenge of the delightful 18 hole links golf course. The outward nine follow the hills and hollows among the sand dunes, with the stunning clear waters lapping on the sandy beach by the opening hole. Please visit www.machgolf.com
