Islay Golf Vacation Packages

West Coast Wilderness

This 4-night, 5-day golf vacation package is perfect for the traveler in you. Using both plane and ferry during this vacation, your journey will begin by flying to the “Whisky Isle” of Islay from Glasgow, before heading to your first round of golf at Machrie Golf course, an 18-hole championship course that was recently redeveloped. At your hotel that evening, you can take in the sites of the isle and enjoy a whisky distillery tour for a relaxing evening before the rest of your journey. The next day, you will leave by ferry to Kintyre to head to your next hotel with breathtaking views, Ugadale Hotel at Machrihanish. During your stay, you will have the privilege of golfing at two of Scotland’s golfing gems, Machrihanish Golf Club and Mach Dunes. As you begin the final part of your Islay golf vacation, you will ferry to Shiskine, one of the finest 12- hole courses in the world with picturesque scenery. You will finish your trip by golfing at Prestwick, the birthplace of The Open, which will offer both a challenge and historic aspect for the true golfer in you.

Fly, Sail and Play Islay and Machrihanish

For an extended weekend of pure golf, we recommend our 3-day, 3-night Islay golf vacation package. You will start with a flight from Glasgow to Islay where you will begin by golfing at the newly-developed, 18-hole Machrie Golf course. After a relaxing evening taking in the scenery, you will be served breakfast the next morning before your ferry ride to Machrihanish. Here, you will stay for two days, enjoying two well-known golf courses, Machrihanish and Machrihanish Dunes.
