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.
How to get there
Getting to Gleneagles from Loch Lomond Waterfront is easy by car, via the A811 and A9, and takes under an hour. There are further directions here.

We knew it would be perfect'From our very first visit to this venue we knew that it was going to be perfect for our reception! The setting is magical, with enchanting views on even the most dreich of days. The staff are fantastic and so accommodating. We loved that we had so much flexibility over our choices, unlike at other venues! There was plenty of space within the private function rooms, which gave our guests plenty of room to socialise while hiding from the wet west coast weather on our big day! It was great not having to share our day with uninvited guests. The...

My stay will never be forgotten'Just wanted to say a very big thank you for my wonderful stay, I have no words to describe the incredible comfort I had at the Cawdor Diamond Lodge, I just checked out today this morning from lodge 5, I do not agree that your lodge is a five star if I could I would call it a 100 star lodge. From start to finish, my stay at the lodge will never be forgotten it's special and unique and an amazing experience'
Our own private beach'Just walking along the West Highland way path past some of the crowded beaches made us realise the value of having your own private waterfront onto the loch. I can still picture walking down to the lochside on our first evening and watching an osprey dive for a fish!'
Breathtaking views'Where to start! We chose the waterfront for our wedding because of the absolutely breathtaking views, location and surroundings. You can't put a price on a view like that.
