Guest Sign-ons for New Members
Written by Scott Currie

There is now an amendment to our agreement with the Machrie Hotel such that new members are NOT permitted to sign on any guests until they have been a member for three months. (This is obviously to prevent large groups visiting for only a few days from having one or two members join and sign the others on).

Note that anyone allowing their membership to lapse, or downgrade to "retained", will be treated as a new member should they rejoin. It does not matter how late in the year you rejoin as long as you were a member in the previous year, and pay the full subscription due, then your membership will be continuous.  Anyone whose membership has lapsed, and who wishes to sign people on, will have to rejoin three months in advance of the requirement.  The joining date is the date on which the full payment has been received.

Machrie Golf Links Seeding of the new fairways and approaches has now begun.

Could all golfers please stay off these areas wherever possible.

If you need to retrieve your ball, please take the shortest direct route leaving your trolley or buggy on the original fairways.

All construction areas will remain G.U.R. and relief must be taken.

Your cooperation and assistance with this will ensure the new areas have a higher rate of germination and ultimately establishment for us all to enjoy.

Thank You

Dean Muir Course Manager

Proposed Changes to the Course
Written by Scott Currie

The Machrie have put some proposed course changes into the Argyll & Bute planning system (as they will be working within Sites of Scientific Interest), specifically to the 2nd, 3rd, 7th, 10th and 11th holes.  You can view these proposals on the website below - click the "documents" tab, then "view associated documents", then the very last document listed "plans combination" is what you want to look at - its a bit clunky to see what is going on, but the new 10th  and 11th will be somewhat challenging in my opinion!

The Course

The- course was originally laid out by Willie Campbell who believed it was "the best ground for a golf course that I have ever had the pleasure of viewing".

Apart from a few changes made in the late 1970's by Donald Steel, the course remains very much the same as when Willie Campbell first constructed it all these years ago. Thus it is a traditional links course and, when playing, one gets the feeling of going back in time to the days of Harry Vardon and John Taylor.  Indeed the Machrie's main claim to fame is its own Open Championship of 1901 which included the "Great Triumvirate" of Harry Vardon, John Henry Taylor and James Braid. It had the highest price of any Open competition at that time of £100.00!

 

 The course is currently undergoing major re-design.
