Here, in the southwest corner of the Mull of Kintyre, where the movements of sea, sand, wind and grazing sheep have intertwined over countless centuries, a landscape has been crafted: a landscape perfectly and naturally suited to the purest form of the royal and ancient game of golf. This is where the ancient traditions of the game are finding a renewed spirit of awareness. Here, in this unique corner of Scotland, lies one of the last remaining natural links sites in the homeland that gave golf to the rest of the world.
Machrihanish Dunes Golf Club is the first golf course to have been built on a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSi) since the days of Old Tom Morris himself. It is also be the first 18-hole links golf course to be built on the west coast of Scotland in 100 years. Course architect and Scotsman David McLay Kidd, who is internationally acclaimed for his design of Bandon Dunes in Oregon and the The Castle Course at St. Andrews, created an inspired routing for Machrihanish Dunes measuring 7,175 yards and featuring six greens and five tees at the ocean’s edge.
This is the way golf began. This is Machrihanish Dunes.
