Course Review and Comments

Machrihanish Dunes is fantastic. I think the natural terrain and the concerns for the environment have created a superb layout that the true fan of links golf will find unique, challenging and memorable. I can't wait until I get to come back.

The front 9 is a bit of a walk, but the use of the land is brilliant and the back 9 is just as nice, and a bit of an easy walk.

I had 5 blind shots in 18 holes, one of which was because I hit it into a deep bunker. I've certainly played other courses that featured many more blind shots.

The course is new, but the greens were excellent and I had good lies on the fairways.

The course is tough, but fun. It isn't everyday you get to play on natural conditions in such a beautiful location.

5 Stars for Mr. Kidd's effort!
