Club Captain's Message

On behalf of the members of Machrihanish Golf Club, it is my pleasure to offer you a warm welcome, via our website, to this fine club and wonderful golf course. We are all very proud of our club and its status as an Old Tom Morris classic and one of the premier links courses in the world. It is a course that remains in superb condition all year round and whilst demanding, is usually fair and enjoyable. It is widely regarded as a true and comprehensive test of golf.

Machrihanish Golf Club has a long history going way back to 1876 when it was founded. Whether you are a visiting golfer planning a trip to experience the best opening hole in the world or seeking more information about membership I hope that you will find the website both informative and interesting.

I am continually amazed at how varied and beautiful the landscape is throughout the year at Machrihanish. If you are visiting to play golf I hope you enjoy the challenge but please do not forget to glance up, take a break from the challenge at hand and enjoy the views which are stunning. The dramatic views of the islands of Gigha, Jura, Islay and Ireland compliment the landscape of the links land beautifully.

Our course is maintained by Head Greenkeeper, Craig Barr and his enthusiastic green keeping staff who are continually striving to improve the condition of our course. Their continual hard work has seen a dramatic rise up numerous ranking guides culminating recently in Golf World magazine ranking Machrihanish as No.12 in Scotland.

The club professional, Jennie Dunn offers state-of-the-art coaching on a daily basis, and her enthusiasm and friendly manner has seen the revival of a resurgent Junior section and a large number of new lady members. Jennie keeps the Pro Shop very well stocked with leading brands at internet prices in addition to a wide selection of merchandised souvenirs and clothing. The Pro shop is conveniently located next to the first tee where Jennie and her staff will welcome you with a friendly smile and a chat about the challenge ahead.

Our new clubhouse, when completed, will command the superb views over the course and offer excellent facilities for entertaining, dining and relaxing. In addition to the lunch and snacks offered the evening menu offers the best of locally sourced produce in addition to the highly recommended steak on the stone selections.

Please enjoy our club; drop in for a chat, or membership query and I trust that you will always find a friendly face to talk to. Please note that we have different membership categories to suit varied lifestyles and playing commitment; do ask !

Thank you for reading my welcome and I do hope that I may soon enjoy the pleasure of meeting you on the Course or in our Clubhouse.
