The Machrie Hotel & Golf Links

Luxury Hotel and Golf on Islay – The Machrie Hotel and Golf Links

Set in the dunes of Islay, Queen of the Hebrides, The Machrie Hotel & Golf Links enjoys an enviable location, nestled beside seven miles of pristine beach in the Inner Hebrides.

Opened in late Summer 2018 after a complete renovation and expansion, The Machrie Hotel features 47 beautifully designed rooms, suites and lodges, some with their own outdoor terraces and stunning views across the Links.
The hotel offers guests the perfect place to meet and relax including, 18, our impressive restaurant with panoramic views of the Links and PureGray, our spa.

Our Links course was originally designed in 1891 by Willie Campbell, and has now been fully modernised by D J Russell, former European Ryder Cup Vice Captain and PGA tour player.
The dramatic setting of Laggan Bay has few equals and the ever changing nature of the challenge offered by this acclaimed layout make The Machrie’s Links one to play.

The scenery, the wildlife, the coastline, one of the finest Links courses in the world, coupled with the people, makes The Machrie the perfect spot from which to explore the Isles of Scotland’s west coast.

Golf :

The Machrie Links – Perfect for Golf Breaks in Scotland

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.

We hope you enjoy playing The Machrie Links.
