Better still, the Machrihanish Dunes experience is getting even better.
|Hole No. 14
On May 12, 2012 in Campbeltown, about 5 miles from Machrihanish Village, The Royal Hotel will make its debut providing golfers with a luxurious accommodations option. The fully restored 23-room property will feature guestrooms with harbor views, the Black Sheep Lounge and Harborview Grille. Accommodations already available on-site for Machrihanish Dunes players include the 22-room Ugadale Hotel and the eight Ugadale Cottages, which overlook the Atlantic Ocean and the opening hole.
For a wee nip after the round, The Old Clubhouse Pub is a few steps away from the Ugadale Cottages.
Back to the course. Kidd’s masterful design is an environmentally sensitive wonder. Almost no heavy machinery was used in the course’s construction and shaping was only done on the greens and tees. No chemicals or irrigation on used on the fairways. Mowing? Black Hebridean Sheep are used in the off-season to help keep fescue grasses in check.
