Machrihanish Golf Club
South West Scotland, Scotland
Machrihanish Golf Club overview
The signature hole at Machrihanish comes at the very 1st. Noted by Jack Nicklaus as being the best opening hole in the world, the 424-yard par-4 hole is legendary for its imposing tee shot over the beach. A tough start!
Did You Know?
The club dates back to 1876 when it was originally opened as Kintyre Golf Club, but when members later decided that the name was too ordinary for such a fantastic piece of land, they changed the name to Machrihanish (in 1888).
Although the famous historic clubhouse was sadly lost in a fire in December 2019, the club still operates and its Old Tom Morris design has never looked better, as it gently winds through the dunes of Machrihanish village.
