Islay - Argyll

Machrie Golf CourseThere are many reasons why you have to come and play the Machrie Golf Links, not least to discover why so many golfers find it a bewitching and exalting experience. Laid out in 1891 by pioneering designer Willie Campbell, and respected among golfing cognoscenti, The Machrie is now getting a wider name for itself as one of the world’s top links courses.

At 6250 yards long, The Machrie course is short, but shouldn’t be underestimated. In the natural sand dunes lie untold troubles, and wind and weather of a wide variety can turn it into a wild challenge. The Machrie Links rose to prominence in 1901 when the great triumvirate of James Braid, John Henry Taylor and Harry Vardon played a competition for a prize of £100, reputed to be the largest prize of its kind at that time in the British Isles. It attracted considerable public and press interest.
