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.

We’re on our way to Edinburgh. Thanks for the kind note, I absolutely loved every minute of it, even when I was in the rough and losing balls! The program you put together was everything we could have expected and your customer service was perfect; thank you for going above and beyond…

Stuart and Platinum Golf Scotland provided a terrific itinerary for a spectacular golf and whisky (and, of course, food) experience in Scotland! The checking in, touching base, and above the call of duty service provided during our trip was great! No doubt that they would be a go to for any future travel to the UK. Thanks a bunch for making it an experience of a lifetime!
