The Machrie

Course Info

Argyll, Arran & Islay, Scotland
All Courses

Breath-taking, jaw-dropping, spine-tingling… throw all these descriptions at The Machrie and you still won’t have said enough. This is one of Scotland’s most iconic courses, with roots dating back to 1891 and boasting views that complement its fabulous Hebridean location. It seems many of the best Scottish venues are must-plays, and this is undoubtedly one of them.

The Machrie offers a stern test for even the best golfers, especially off the back tees, but it’s also a track that’s fair for everyone. Considered shot selection is imperative here, if you are to build a decent score. And when you get to the contoured greens, don’t assume you’ll only ever two-putt at worst. The test isn’t over until that ball finally drops in the hole!

And although you’ll want to concentrate on your round when you play this sumptuous links course, make sure you find the time to look up and notice the panoramic vistas along the way. As well as the ocean, you can also see the peaks of Beinn Bheigeir and the Paps of Jura. Bringing 14 clubs AND a camera with you when you visit is surely the best option.

Golfing getaways surely don’t come more iconic than the ones that bring you here. There are a number of accommodation options to choose from nearby, including the hotel that’s on-site at The Machrie. There’s also a range of B&Bs, farm cottages and more to tempt you. And if you fancy being a tourist for the day, why not visit a distillery or two while you’re in the area?

The experts at Platinum Golf can help you find the best tee times on the best courses, we can sort out everything from accommodation to transport and we can even provide you with sightseeing arrangements. To turn that golfing dream into a reality, simply call 07711282442 today. We’re looking forward to hearing from you soon.

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!


Dear Lynda Yes we got the bag tags, thank you very much. And thank you for the great organisation. Everything went absolutely smoothly and even though we had a bit of an adventurous journey home with flight delays and cancellations we returned home with many great memories of a fantastic trip.

We will get in touch when we plan our return trip.

Kind regards Fiete


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,
