Machrihanish is as remote, rugged and natural as exists in golf. A regular feature on GB&I and world lists, the Championship Course is a collectors item for purists. The iconic Championship layout is one of the great unaltered links the world over. The course is a traditional out-and-back links that wraps around Machrihanish Beach heading out away from the village, before turning back for home at the halfway mark. The Championship Course is a playable, enjoyable, and balanced mix of dramatic and subtly compelling holes. The world class links, crafted by “The Almighty” as Old Tom himself remarked, is mostly characterised by rolling dunescape and marvellous green sites. The course is a wonderful 18-hole journey from start to finish. Often described as spiritual, Machrihanish is a love affair of sport and nature – challenging but fair, charming, and thrilling. Golf as it was intended to be.
