The new Improved Machrie Links

New eco bunkers and tees offer golfers a greater challenge

The Machrie Links Greens Team has completed the addition of thirty four new eco bunkers and nine new championship tees to the links, under the guidance of course architect, DJ Russell. The bunkers have been introduced to create a more strategic course, with more risk-reward holes.

The bunkers are classic links revetted bunkers, constructed by EcoBunker. EcoBunker uses artificial turf from old sports pitches, recycled to use in bunker faces, saving them from landfill. Moreover, artificial turf has a longer lifespan and requires less day-to-day maintenance. After construction, the new bunkers are almost identical to traditional turf bunkers.

The new championship tees have increased the length of the course from 6,782 to 7,024 yards and have been added to the 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 6th, 7th, 11th, 12th, 15th, 16th and 18th holes. The Links has now also been Course Rated and Slope Rated.

For those wanting to perfect their swing, The Machrie Links’ resident PGA Golf Professional, David Foley, is available to provide tuition for all levels from complete beginners to those playing at a more advanced level. Additionally, there is a six-hole Par 3 Wee Course as well as an all-weather driving range and indoor golf studio for those wanting to practice their swing.
