Britains version of Amen Corner


MACHIRHANISH, Scotland – Immediate comparison of Machrihanish Dunes is to Bandon Dunes, the links gem located in the Pacific Northwest, but our caddie Peter had another American classic in mind.

'This is our version of Amen Corner,' Peter said of Nos. 13, 14 and 15. 'The only difference is that the rabbits ate all the magnolias.'

Well, that, and about 200 acres of perfectly manicured, greener than green turf.
