Glasgow Gailes Golf Course
Situated on the west coast of Scotland it shows itself as the epitome of what links is. Covered in heather and gorse keeping to the excellent rolling greens is a tough task. It is these luxurious rolling greens, giving subtle movements like a true links, providing much of the action and adversity.

When the Open Championship is held in Ayrshire, at Turnberry and Royal Troon, Glasgow Gailes is immediately retained by the R & A as one of the final qualifying courses.

Glasgow Gailes has been very fortunate that Willie Park Jnr from Musselburgh was its designer. His design philosophy was “ keep things simple”. Willie wasn’t a believer in creating greens with dramatic slopes, did not favour the “blind” shot and particularly in the case of Glasgow Gailes, had the foresight to leave the glorious heather and gorse untouched. He always believed Gailes to be one of his best creations. Generations since believe he was right.
