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?

Platinum Golf Scotland Testimonials

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!
