Golf has been played at The Machrie since 1891. Designed by Willie Campbell and more recently modernised by course architect DJ Russell, The Machrie combines the very best of a traditional, historic links course from a previous age, with a modern Links. The need for thought, imagination and creative shot-making has not changed throughout the years and carries as much of a premium over sheer power now, as it did then, in 1891.

Golf at The Machrie offers enjoyment and a challenge for golfers of all abilities and age and along with the stunning 18-hole Links, we also have the Wee course, which offers six par-3 holes which can be played from a multitude of tees, a 5-bay covered driving range, short game area and the spectacular Hebrides putting course.

In 2014 under the guidance of Course Architect DJ Russell, work started at The Machrie Links in order to restore the Links to its former glory. The Machrie Links today is one that priorities skill and strategy over power and combines the best from the past with today.

The Links changes were completed in 2018 and are further complemented by the new Machrie Hotel.

We hope you enjoy playing The Machrie Links.
