What we say
It’s totally natural – golf as it used to be, golf as it should be. If you ‘get it’, you’ll love Mach Dunes.
The Machrihanish Dunes is the first course to be plotted on a Site of Scientific Interest. Created by top designer David McLay Kidd, who admits it was a fairly straightforward job - certainly easier than the Castle Course project at St Andrews. He said "We designed each hole around the natural terrain. For maintenance, we'll do a little mowing, but will mostly rely on the wandering sheep to keep the fescue in check - just like the old courses used to do."

After hearing comments about Machrihanish Dunes I decided to try out this new links. I was very impressed by the standard of the greens and tees for such a new course. The fairways were also of a very high standard. I read comments about too many blind holes, but a golf hole is blind only for the first time. I believe Machrihanish Dunes in a few years time will be a course all the top players will wish to play as it is a golfer's course where every club in the bag will need to be utilised. With the 5 sets of tees to each hole golfers of all handicaps will enjoy this course which is as how golf was meant to be played by the early pioneers. The golf enthusiast who comes to play here also has to try the esteemed Machrihanish Golf Club which is home to arguably the greatest opening hole in world golf.
