The Machrie named in Golf World’s top 100 courses in the world you can play

December 23, 2020

We are proud to announce that UK magazine Today’s Golfer have included the The Machrie in their new Golf World ranking of the top 100 golf courses in the world that you can play.

The list considers all courses that are open to the public. Compiled in December 2020, their Top 100 editor Chris Bertram said: “I sincerely believe it is an accurate representation of the very, very best courses in the world.”

The Machrie is placed at No 93 in a list that includes the likes of Royal County Down, the Old Course at St Andrews, Royal Melbourne, Pebble Beach, Bandon Dunes and many more household names from the world of golf.

Describing The Machrie’s inclusion, they said: ” The Machrie has undergone a quiet revolution in the past decade under astute new owners. DJ Russell has renovated the course to make it more scenic and playable, while retaining a healthy dose of its eccentricities. Some may lament the loss of the original, we celebrate its clever remake.”
