Machrihanish Dunes

Set hard against the Atlantic Ocean on Scotland’s west coast

Machrihanish Dunes

Hard on the Atlantic, Machrihanish Dunes is the only course ever created on a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). David McLay Kidd 'uncovered' 18 magnificent holes along a natural routing through the mature dunes adjacent to Machrihanish Golf Club. No fewer than six greens and five tees lie at the ocean's edge and there are spectacular panoramic views across to Northern Ireland and Scotland's western islands from every fairway. Opened in 2009, Machrihanish Dunes is perhaps the most natural golf course ever built and features undulating fairways and greens, and natural bunkers and roughs.
