The Golf Courses

Western Gailes
The reputation of Western Gailes as one of the game’s finest and more exacting courses has spread worldwide as evidenced by its numerous visitors from around the world including golfing legends Luke Donald, Rory McIlroy and Bubba Watson have all tested their mettle over this classic links course. Ranked No 24 in the GB&I Top 100 Golf Courses it is a course that we believe should be in every golfer’s “must  play” list.

Gailes Links
Established in 1892 and ranked the 10th Oldest Golf Club in the world. The club has hosted 32 International competitions since 1927 and was an Open Final Championship Qualifying course four times since 2014. This venue will test all our pairs with omnipresent gorse and superb bunkering demanding pinpoint accuracy from the first to the last.

Irvine Golf Club
Set in a seaside location, the neighbouring Gulf Stream ensures year round links golf, whilst the romantic peaks of Arran present a stunning backdrop to the landscape. The Irvine Golf Club established 1887, is a fine example and is regularly used by the R&A as a Final Open Qualifying Course. In 2003, the Club co-hosted the Amateur Championship with Royal Troon and in 2007, the British Seniors’ Open with Turnberry. In 2009, the Ladies Home Internationals were also successfully hosted at the Irvine Golf Club. In 2016 the Scottish Youths Championship and the Ladies British Open Final Qualifying was also held at the club in 2017.

It truly is one of Scotland’s hidden gems, offering a traditional links challenge, which owes much of its present day character to the course design of the great James Braid. One of Scotland’s most celebrated course designers, James Braid created a legacy of distinctive courses, characterised by their great variety and interesting use of nature’s assets.
