The famous Machrihanish Golf Course is one of the finest and most popular 'links style' golf courses in Scotland. The newly opened Machrihanish Dunes is the first links golf course to be built in over 100 years and is the only golf course to be built on a site of special scientific interest. Only a 15 minute drive away, the Machrihanish Dunes Course is built on land owned by Mr Barr's farm - so stay at The Sheiling for all of the up to date information for golfing visitors to this area!
