Course Info

Argyll, Arran & Islay, Scotland
All Courses

Scotland’s fabulous west coast is rightly regarded around the world as a magnet for lovers of pure golf, the type of golf that has been played here for many, many years. Here at the superb Machrihanish Dunes, you can challenge every single aspect of your game, from challenging tee shots into a strong wind to long, long putts over the bewildering undulations of speedy greens.

And all the while you’re testing yourself, you’ll be breathing the cleanest sea air and savouring coastal views that make you want to stop in your tracks and savour the moment forever. Created in 2009, this is one of the region’s must-play venues, and it deserves to be on the itinerary of every visitor. Machrihanish Dunes has won numerous awards, and is regularly featured in lists of the world’s greatest courses.

If you’re looking to base yourself in the region for a top of the range golf tour, you can take your pick from a comprehensive range of accommodation options. Think country house hotels steeped in history, think homely, family-run B&Bs and think everything else in between. As always, our team can advise on all aspects of your trip, including where to stay.

Platinum Golf can also help to arrange tee times on all your favourite courses, even those that others can’t get access to. We can organise sightseeing trips if you and your group would like to see more of the region, and we’ll even sort out transportation on your behalf. If you’re the organiser, why spend all your time on the details when we can do it all for you instead? Then all that’s left for you to do is make the most of a golfing adventure that ticks all the right boxes.

Platinum Golf Scotland Testimonials

Marc and I would like to thank you for the beautiful journey you prepared. Everything was well organized, timing, convenience, réservations, etc. All the people we met were so kind to us that we felt just like home. Golf in Scotland is the best place and this east coast is just gorgeous we leave the country with the ambition and hope to be back.

Michel & Marc

It was so nice to meet you and Stuart in person as well.  Clearly you take great interest in your clients’ satisfaction, and it shows.  As we may have mentioned, we had never been to Scotland or the UK and this trip exceeded all of our expectations.  And as lovers of golf, the experience was utterly unforgettable.  Thank you again for the lovely gifts you shared with us upon arrival.

We loved our trip.  If we booked it again tomorrow (we wish we could!) we wouldn’t change a thing except maybe substitute a different hotel for Loch Green.  Thank you for making our “bucket list” trip so special. 

Russell & Kelly

Thanks again for a fantastic trip !

We look forward to the next one !

We have had a great time in London too although it’s been a bit overwhelming! What a city!


Thank you for this wonderful experience and for helping to make this trip a dream come true for all of us. We can’t wait to come back to Scotland!


Our heartfelt thanks to you and Stuart for the holiday of our dreams and especially for Johannes. It was beyond his expectations (and mine) and we had such a beautiful time together. The true test of Johannes’ love for Scotland was his purchase of an entire kilt outfit with all the bits and bobs, I nearly fainted –I am truly living in Outlander. I almost fell over, we expect our kilts in December or January, and photos will be sent, I promise

I cannot express enough how grateful I am to you both, every detail and every moment was fabulous! We are eating shortbread with proper marmalade and relish our memories.

Michele & Johannes

Hi Lynda & Stuart,

First, back home safe & sound.

From the bottom of my heart, the two of you are absolutely amazing and delightful. But more than that, so capable. A truly glitch less nine days. So fun!


Our Scottish Golf and Whisky experience was wonderful! Thank you for putting together such a fabulous itinerary. Everything was so well thought out and perfectly timed

Basically, you put together a trip we will always remember. Thank you for everything. We would highly recommend you to our friends who are interested in a Scottish golf experience.. Also, thank you for the lovely welcome gifts and taking the time to meet us that Sunday morning at St. Andrews.

When I asked Kevin to describe the trip in one word he said “perfect”, Glynnis said “spectacular” and my word was “awesome”. Pretty simple but the words fit our pictures (almost 1,000) and our memories.

Bill, Kevin & Glynnis

Thank you Lynda and Stewart, the trip was excellent in every way


We got the photo from Panmure and it is so good! Definitely going on my office wall!

My boys and I loved Panmure. As we have discussed before, it is exactly the kind of course and club I love to visit when here. While all the trophy courses are wonderful, they do have a bit of commercialism that I like to ignore. None of that at all at Panmure, just pure golf and pure class.

Thanks for these photos, they are great.

All my best and thanks from my entire family,


What a fantastic journey at St Andrews. Great city, great atmosphere, 3 great courses. I did not like the castle course the same way. I think that the hotel is THE perfect location because we could walk around, go everywhere without using a car , restaurants and bars were max 5 to 7 minutes, perfect.

I would recommand this to every of my golf friends. That is an experience every golfer should live .

My friends were very happy about your professionalism and about the courses , the perfect timing, and the gifts.
