Architect

David McLay Kidd

Architect David McLay Kidd, whose father for a quarter century managed the courses at Gleneagles and now works at his son's firm, has become an established name in design circles for making the most of excellent landscapes, as he did at Bandon Dunes on the Oregon Coast. His location here, on the outer side of the Mull of Kintyre, is perfect links country. Kidd worked his way through the regulations that protect the plants and animals in this delicate environment, coming up with a design that minimized excavation and the use of large earth-moving equipment. The result is a handmade course in the classic style that melds seamlessly with the terrain on which it has been built. Since opening in 2009, Machrihanish Dunes has received praise for its scenic location, the quality of the resort experience and for sustainability.

Fantastic course with some very fun and interesting holes. I played it when it had just opened so I would imagine now it has bedded in it will be even better now.

Prior to coming to Machrihanish Dunes Golf Club I was not the biggest fan of inks-style golf courses, but I was impressed by the beauty of the golf course. It was my first experience on a links course and I really enjoyed it and had a lot of fun. You have to play with the wind which was quite strong that day. It is just another way to play golf. The hardest thing for me were the tricky long greens with unbelievable breaks. I have never seen this before while I was playing a lot of golf in the south of France. The only negative point are the very long walks from greens to the next tee box.
