Please note that mats will be in use on all fairways as from Monday 31st October. If you have handed back your mat or lost it you can get another one for £5 deposit from the shop.

If you pick up a mat without deposit at the weekend then please put it back at the end of your round.

Access to Clubhouse

The following is from Dean Muir. 

Corramore have requested to close off the access between the cottages and the hotel to all non construction traffic.

So from today can all access for members wishing to use the clubhouse be from the rear of the cottages.

All access must be on foot and no cars are permitted to access the clubhouse in this way.

Also whilst leaving the 18th green all golfers will have to walk to the rear of the cottages to return to the shop/car park area.

Thanks for your co-operation.

Winter Golf

The course is being set up for winter play, please stay away from any area that has been roped off or has barrier hoops. We are trying to manage the traffic routes in the high wear areas to ensure they are in the best possible condition for the spring. There are now only white and yellow tees in play and on some holes winter tees will be used. The 14th hole is now closed, please proceed from the 13th green to the forward tee on the 15th. Follow the signs at the rear of the 13th green. Mats will be introduced again by the end of the month. Thanks in advance for your assistance to ensure that Machrie Golf Links winters well.
