Quite simply one of the most beautiful golf courses in the world, a truly unique opportunity to play golf the way it was made to be played.
The 7,082 yard, 18-hole links course flows effortlessly to, from and along the sea, inviting you to step back in time to the days when Old Tom Morris laid out the neighboring links and Willie Campbell plotted the Machrie Golf Links on the nearby island of Islay – visible from Machrihanish Dunes. The routing, as well as the positioning of its tees and greens, was dictated by the lay of the land – and the presence of several endangered species of flora and fauna. Machrihanish Dunes is the only course ever created on a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). Because of the fragility of this pristine coastal environment and in order to preserve for all time the unmatched natural beauty of the site, the course was built and will be maintained with the lightest touch possible. Of the 259 acres on which the course sits, only seven – yes, seven – were disturbed during the construction of the course. Only the tees and greens were shaped. The fairways upon which golfers tread are just as they were found, only mown shorter.
The natural dunes shape the course, the local sheep help keep the course, golf does not get any more authentic than this. Set in the beautiful town of Campbeltown, Machrihanish Dunes is perfect for the golf and whisky enthusiast as Springbank distillery is right on its doorstep
