Course Info

Argyll, Arran & Islay, Scotland
All Courses

One of the many wonderful benefits of a golf tour in Scotland is the chance to walk in the steps of legends, and here at the fabulous Machrihanish you can play a course that, according to the great Jack Nicklaus, features one of the best opening holes in the world. Your very first shot of the day will be across an ocean inlet. Try to remain focused, and try to remain calm!

Over the years, this course has undergone a number of modifications and changes, yet it remains true to the original designs of Charles Hunter and Old Tom Morris. It’s a good test for golfers, but this is far from a track that only suits the low handicapper. The undulating fairways hug the beach, which is considered part of the course and not out of bounds. Accuracy, therefore, is likely to be more important than distance.

The greens offer a variety of challenges, because some are below the fairways and others are raised above them. If you like variety in your round, you’ll love this place. Machrihanish is a popular choice for tour organisers from all over the world, and it’s easy to see why this should be. Proper, old-fashioned links golf has so many devotees, so come along and experience it for yourself.

The west coast of Scotland in general and the Argyll region in particular are much-loved by visitors. There’s plenty to see and do here in addition to the golf, and you’ll find a great selection of accommodation options to choose from to make your stay extra special. You could also explore the area when you have a day away from the links, to get a taste of what Scotland is all about.

Here at Platinum Golf, we know what it takes to create a golfing adventure that will never be forgotten. There’s more to it than simply turning up at the first tee and playing. With our help, you and your friends can savour an experience like no other, with all the tee times, accommodation, transport and sightseeing laid on for you by experts.

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.

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.
