Panellists’ Comments: “The opening hole presents one of the greatest views in golf”; “It passed my test of a great golfing experience by being a course where, having just played a full round, I wished I could walk back immediately onto the first tee and play it again”; “Once you have visited and played Machrihanish, golf will never be the same again.”
