Seasonal ownership now available at the Mull of Kintyre golf resort
New Open champion Louis Oosthuizen, the smiling young South African who made winning the St. Andrews championship in high winds look like a breeze, knows just how breathtaking playing Scotland’s links courses can be.
Scottish golf is as famous as its whisky and Hogmanay parties, and now there’s a new links course and luxury resort, situated next to the original Machrihanish Golf Club on the Mull of Kintyre, for golfers and fresh air lovers to enjoy.
The Village at Machrihanish Dunes, created by Southworth Development, has its own new 18-hole course which opened last year and the resort has just joined The Registry Collection www.registrycollection.com . Single weeks as well as four-week fractionals are being marketed and single week purchasers will have access to RCI’s vacation exchange network www.RCI.com and over 4,000 resorts worldwide. For those who crave more time on the fairways there’s the opportunity to enjoy Scotland’s changing scenery each season – owners of the fractional golf cottages which are being sold by Southworth will get four-week fractional use periods (one in each season).
we’re fortunate in being able to offer their exceptional golf lifestyle experience to our members
Jonathan Back, managing director of RCI, EMEAI, said: "We are very pleased to welcome The Village at Machrihanish Dunes into The Registry Collection. Southworth Development has much experience in delivering the finest golf experiences in some of the world’s best locations and we’re fortunate in being able to offer their exceptional golf lifestyle experience to our members."
The area has plenty to offer non-golfers, too. There is an observatory, beach, biking and walking trails, windsurfing, fishing and a wildlife reserve. Machrihanish Dunes includes the renovated Old Clubhouse Pub, and a gym and spa are due to open on site next year and there are plans to restore two classic Scottish hotels and create residential family properties as well.
