The MBGC subscription for 2022 is £135 (and that is for a full adult yearly rate), which we hope you will agree represents excellent value.
Machrie Bay Golf Club signed the lease and took over the full running of the course, from the estate, as of 1 April 2022.
The greens are not in as good a condition as we would have expected and plans are in place for their improvement . These will probably include having to use temporary greens on occasions when work is being done on them. Please bear with us during this time of adjustment.
We are looking forward to seeing current members returning after the pandemic and also to welcoming new members.
Congratulations to John Pennycott on winning the 2021 / 2022 Lochranza Hotel Cup at Machrie Bay GC.
Winner of the Lochranza Hotel Cup: John Pennycott – 173
Runner up: Brian Sherwood – 172
This is played over the winter, since the start of October, & he pipped our Captain (Brian) by the closest of margins – 1 shot.
John won the Winter Cup at Whiting Bay on the Sunday and then this one on the Tuesday. 2 trophies in 3 days & he may well have to move house again soon, to fit in the trophy cabinet! 🤣
Captain’s Day was held on Tuesday 10th September, & 15 golfers were there hosted with style by Captain of the Club Campbell Laing.
A big thanks to David Jeffrey for the superb condition of the course.
Wonderful catering was enjoyed after the 9 holes & many thanks to Katie & her team for the amazing hospitality.
