Thinking of getting in a links golf trip before the season ends? You might want to put Scotland's magical Machrihanish Dunes on your itinerary. Between now and October 15, everyone who plays Mach Dunes -- a stunning links course on the Kintyre Peninsula -- will be entered into a drawing to come back to the course on October 26 and take a shot at a million-dollar hole-in-one on the course's 14th hole. Four lucky finalists will be chosen for the “Mach Dunes Million” and all four will take their shot at the picturesque 14th -- a par 3 measuring 167 yards overlooking the mighty Atlantic -- for a cool $1,000,000!
Where else can you play an award-winning UK Top-100 links golf masterpiece AND have the chance to qualify to swing away for a $1,000,000 prize?
The hotels and cottages that are a part of the Village at Machrihanish Dunes offer four-star accommodations that make for unforgettable links golf vacations -- with fine dining, two very lively pubs, and a boutique spa.
In July, the resort kicked off the promotion by surprising 20 unsuspecting golfers with a chance to win a cool million on the spot. An Old Tom Morris impersonator met each group at the 13th green, ushered them to the 14th tee and told them to swing away for an on-the-spot million-dollar prize. It was all captured in a rollicking video, which you can view here.
