It requires a deal of commitment to reach the southern tip of the Mull of Kintyre to seek out the wonderful links of the Machrihanish Golf Club, but it is a journey that will never disappoint.
Here lies one of the really great treasures of Scottish golf; a course laid out on classic links ground that Old Tom Morris was designed by the Almighty for playing golf. Old Tom made what must have been a long and tiresome journey from St Andrews to lay out the course in 1879 and his work has comfortably stood the test of time ever since. What joy there is to stand on the first tee at Machrihanish a look across the bay and the carry to the fairway that on what many believe to be the finest opening hole in Scottish golf.
