We’ve teamed up with our friends at Machrihanish Dunes to offer TWO readers the chance to stay and play at one of Scotland’s newest and finest courses.

The lucky winners will receive a two-night B&B stay at either The Royal or Ugadale Hotel as well as unlimited golf at Mach Dunes – a prize value of at least £750.

Designed by master links craftsman David McLay Kidd, Mach Dunes, on the Mull of Kintyre, opened for play in 2009 and was soon recognised as not only one of the finest courses in Scotland, but in the UK. It has since grown its global reputation and the team at Mach Dunes say it is the most natural in the world.

When you play it, it’s easy to see why. Of the 259 acres on which the course sits, only seven have been disturbed by the course.

You’ll play alongside sheep in the fairways, who help keep the course in shape in the winter months, and you’ll find six tees and five greens that sit directly beside the Atlantic Ocean, making it a true seaside experience.

A must-play for any golfer.


To be in with a chance of winning this prize, simply answer the following question correctly…

Who designed Machrihanish Dunes?

A: Old Tom Morris
B: Alister MacKenzie
C: David McLay Kidd
