Golfing at Gleneagles

Gleneagles is easily one of the most famous golf courses in Scotland. It has, in fact, three championship courses. Designed by five times Open champion, James Braid, the King’s Course at Gleneagles was home to the first informal Ryder Cup match between Britain and the USA. Located in Auchterarder, less than an hour’s drive from Loch Lomond Waterfront, this is a spectacular golfing destination for our guests. What’s more, the club welcomes visitors of all levels and abilities, all year round.

The courses and facilities

Gleneagles has three championship golf courses: the King’s Course, Queen’s Course and PGA Centenary Course. Many prestigious tournaments have been held there, including the Ryder Cup and Solheim Cup. There is also a nine-hole par-3 course called the Wee Course. In addition, there’s an elite practice facility with a driving range, putting greens and pitching areas, along with two half-way houses and a clubhouse. For those who wish to pick up a souvenir or stock up on the latest golf gear, the Gleneagles Golf Shop provides a great shopping experience. Gleneagles is also home to the PGA National Academy for Scotland, providing coaching and skills training for all levels.

Booking a tee time

Gleneagles is open to golfers of any level. The club doesn’t require a handicap certificate, meaning all golfers are welcome. The three championship courses provide a wonderful, challenging experience for experienced players. While the Wee Course is an excellent 9-hole course for beginners and families. You can book a tee time online, but please book early as slots are in high demand. You can also learn to hone your skills with lessons at the PGA National Golf Academy.
