Machrihanish Golf Clubhouse gets back into the swing of things with effective drainag
November 2021

The new clubhouse of the Machrihanish Golf Course has had its water management upgraded thanks to the installation of two Alumasc Rainwater products: Aqualine Box Extruded Aluminium Gutter and Flushjoint Aluminium downpipes.

The golf course, founded in 1876, recently had its clubhouse rebuilt after a fire in December 2018 destroyed the original building. Local contractor McKinven and Colville Ltd carried out the work on the new clubhouse which was designed by G1 Architects. The building offers unparalleled panoramic views across the Championship and Pans courses.

“For this project, two Rainwater products, Aqualine Box and Flushjoint were specified and installed for the new clubhouse on the golf course,” said Nicola McGowan, Area Sales Manager, Scotland. “It’s an elegant, modern building with stunning views over the Atlantic.

“The Aqualine Box Extruded Aluminium Gutter and Flushjoint downpipes were chosen for their sleek, modern design, and durable, non-corrodible features.”

Aqualine provides a compact and efficient rainwater system that significantly enhances and complements the appearance and architectural character of the building. The system comes in a choice of five standard profiles and is available with secret fix bracketry. Additionally, its available with all weather ‘dry’ jointing, with full provision for thermal movement. For the new clubhouse, a Box profile was chosen to provide a uniform finish.

The Flushjoint system is a contemporary range of extruded aluminium downpipes, based on concealed spigots which give a smooth, clean appearance that complements modern building design. The pipes are mounted on brackets to stand clear of the structure and are easy to handle and fix.

The clubhouse now has bespoke locker rooms, an indoor golf simulator and an upstairs function room. Additional facilities include a bar and restaurant area for members and visitors who have a club membership for the day.

Our Aluminium Rainwater range is BBA accredited and suitable for traditional and modern buildings. It is available in 26 standard factory applied RAL colours and is 100% recyclable after use.
