The Machrie Hotel & Golf Links operates a loyalty program named The Machrie Club.
A registered member who stays and spends at our hotel will be awarded loyalty points calculated as follows:
- £1 accommodation (awarded for direct bookings) = 1 point
- £1 food & beverage = 2 points
- £1 Spa = 2 points
- £1 Golf = 2 points
- £1 Other Services = 2 points
1 loyalty point = 5 pence.
Points earned will be awarded on the same day of transaction and applied to your member account on presentation of your card or app at reception on check out, or on receipt of payment of services. Points can only be earned for total spend posted to the residential member’s room account at time of departure. Only the cardholder can claim points earned. Points cannot be claimed by two different parties for the same booking. You will be sent a monthly e-statement informing you of your points balance. Notwithstanding the foregoing, a statement may not be sent where the member has not accumulated any points during the immediately preceding six months. A member may also find out how many points they have accumulated by checking their account on this website. If no points have been earned or reward redeemed for a period of 12 consecutive months, the account will be deemed to have lapsed. Once an account has lapsed all points accrued against your membership shall be forfeited and shall be closed. Points are not redeemable for cash and have no value unless presented for redemption in accordance with these Terms and Conditions.
*Points cannot be earned on conferences, events, functions and weddings.
Redemption of loyalty voucher codes
Members may exchange points under The Machrie Club website for voucher codes which can be used towards accommodation, food & beverage, spa and golf by requesting a voucher code online from this website. A minimum voucher order value of 120 points (£6) applies. Once points have been exchanged for a voucher code, no refund will be available. Loyalty voucher codes are available in a variety of experience vouchers represented on this website. Voucher codes will be delivered to your registered email address. Voucher codes can be exchanged in full or part payment for accommodation, food and beverage and named services on this website according to the voucher code value, however the terms and conditions for the rate booked will apply. The voucher code must be used in full within 6 months of date of issue in whole or part of any single transaction. The full voucher value can only be applied and no change will be given for any part transaction. Please quote your unique voucher code when booking your experience which is subject to availability.
