The Village at Machrihanish Dunes announced the kick-off of the “Mach Dunes Million” hole-in-one contest where four lucky participants could win $1,000,000 USD.
From 15 July through 15 October 2013, individuals who register and play an 18-hole round at Machrihanish Dunes Golf Club will be entered into a set of random drawings that will determine four finalists to shoot for the “Mach Dunes Million” on 26 October 2013.
The contest will take place on the picturesque 14th hole at Machrihanish Dunes, a 167-yard par-3, considered to be one of the best par-3 holes in the UK. Each finalist must be an amateur golfer and will have one (1) shot to attempt an ace. A successful and verified hole-in-one will land the golfer a cool $1,000,000 USD.
To qualify for the drawing, players must be 18 years of age, pre-register at the Machrihanish Dunes Golf Shop and complete an 18 Hole round at Machrihanish Dunes between 15 July 2013 and 15 October 2013. Finalists will be chosen on four separate dates during this three-month period at random from the qualified and registered pool of entrants. The finalist chosen in each of the four drawings will be announced upon meeting contest requirements and confirming a commitment to return to Machrihanish Dunes for the “Mach Dunes Million” hole-in-one contest on 26 October 2013.
About The Village at Machrihanish Dunes
The vision of the Village at Machrihanish Dunes was to create a world-class seaside resort, including a U.K. Top-100 links golf course, four-star accommodations, dining and other facilities in one of Scotland’s most beautiful regions. The course was the first 18-hole course in the U.K. to earn certification from the Golf Environmental Organization, and was named the most ecologically-friendly course in the world by ABTA Golf Magazine in 2012. The course was designed by David McLay-Kidd, who as a child played in the same dunes where he ultimately laid out the Machrihanish Dunes golf course. The course opened in 2009 on a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), the first course ever to be built on such a site and also the first to be built on the west coast of Scotland in over 100 years.
As the most ambitious resort development ever created in Argyll, The Village at Machrihanish Dunes is hosting visitors from around the globe, as well as a variety of international competitions in 2013, including the Machrihanish Dunes Hickory Open to be held in September, and the 15th Annual International Pairs Competition scheduled for October, 2013.
