Designed by David McLay Kidd, who is responsible for the internationally acclaimed Bandon Dunes in Oregon, this breathtaking links has been built on a Site of Special Scientific Interest. (SSSI). It is set hard against the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, and follows the natural terrain, with 6 tees and 5 greens sitting on the ocean’s edge.
Since opening in 2009, the golf links at “Mach Dunes” have received numerous recognitions as one of the great golfing experiences in Scotland, including awards for excellence in overall experience, service, sustainability and of course–the quality of the golf course!
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 (Machrihanish Old) and Willie Campbell plotted the Machrie Golf Links on the nearby island of Islay – visible from Machrihanish Dunes. The 18-hole journey features no less than six greens and five tees at the ocean’s edge.http://www.machrihanishdunes.com/
