Played The Machrie in October 2020. I had never played the original layout so had nothing to compare it to. I thought the course was great. Very wide off the tee, which was most welcome in the 30mph winds we played it in. The greens had lots of good little undulations and could make you look a little silly if you got in the wrong sections. Loved the par 3 9th heading back towards the water. Also thought that 17 was a great little hole as well. The course was in fantastic condition as well, probably the best conditioned course I played in 2020. The whole setup really reminded me of Cabot Links with the hotel overlooking the 18th green and the big windows opening up from the hotel rooms. Would love to go back and play it in better weather than the day we got it!
