Course information

The Machrie is one of the few examples anywhere in the world of a great traditional links course which has been preserved for 120 years in its purest form.

The Machrie was the stage for the richest prize in the history of golf in 1901 when a first prize of £100 was offered for the Islay Open. The Great Triumvirate of J.H. Taylor, James Braid and Harry Vardon competed. J.H. Tayor won the title, narrowly from Braid. Between them the Great Triumvirate won 17 Majors - and the Islay Open.
