What the club says: Machrihanish Golf course is a generous 6,225 yards in length. Measuring 3,101 yards and featuring eight par 4's and a single par 3 on the inward nine, and the outward nine measuring 3,124 yards and featuring two par 5's just over 500 yards each and three par 3's. The 18 hole course here features some of the most 'natural' golfing ground you will find anywhere in the world, with the course completely natural with no man made structures, mounds or hazards that werent already in place.

Most Helpful Review

I have been over to play Machrihanish 3 or 4 times over the years, each time in different conditions and each time i have loved it!

The weather has varied from glorious sunshine with no wind, to monsoon like rain with a swirling gale, but each and every time the course has been excellent fun to play and always in fantastic condition.

Holes 1 to 14 are all excellent, the last 4 are a little more bland and have the feel of just needing to fit in 4 more holes to make an 18 hole course. Regardless of this less than stellar finish the course demands return visits, even making the 3 hour drive from Glasgow worthwhile, although a much more civilised trip would be to go via arran for a few days, take in Whiting Bay, Lamlash, Corrie or Shiskine before heading over to Kintyre. - Jul 8 2013

Jean L rated 5 out of 5 - Aug 13 2015

Fantastic golfing challenge on a very natural and fair golf course. Hard and fast running, always presents options for how to play shots - along the ground or in the air. True but complex and hard to read greens, Beautiful coastal location completes a great course.
