Machrihanish Golf Course has been voted 'best opening hole in golf', as your first tee shot has to cross part of the Atlantic Ocean. Situated on the south-west coast of the Kintyre Peninsula, this magnificent, championship-standard links course has large and undulating greens, as well as many blind shots that call for accurate iron play. Although over 100 miles from Glasgow by road, this course is also accessible by air and sea and, as such, golfers should attempt to fit it in to their itineraries.
