About the Club

Our review

The southernmost corner of Kintyre, the long isthmus that hangs down the west coast of Scotland, is not the most accessible of places but for many years golfers in the know have been making pilgrimage to this remote location for just one reason – to play Machrihanish.

From its daunting opening tee shot, over a bay to a fairway that runs right to left and away from you, so you have to decide just how much you want to bite off, the challenge is stiff but fair.

All of the great features of links golf – sandhills and dunes, pot bunkers that invariably cost you a stroke, undulations, mounds and hollows, along with fast and true greens, are here in abundance.

There are some blind shots but they just make you want to come back and play again, now that you know where you’re going. Our only criticism would be the 18th, a weak, rather featureless hole that is there simply to provide a route back to the clubhouse.
