Golf at Machrihanish...
Machrihanish, the home of Links Golf:
Machrihanish Golf Club
Reputed to be one of the best courses in the world, the first tee is the first on the Pro's Dream Course.
When the eye of Tom Morris first beheld the series of dunes that skirt the beach for miles, he uttered his delight in the now historic sentence; "Providence meant this for a gowf coorse"
