    The championship course at Gailes Links was opened in 1982 and founded by Glasgow Golf Club, the 9th oldest golf club in the world. There is uncertainty around who originally designed the course at Gailes Links but two times Open Championship winner, Willie Park Jnr. altered the layout in 1912. This premier links golf course features a demanding layout and the fact it was selected as The Open Championship qualifying venue for Scotland from 2014 to 2018 is testament to this.

    Gailes Links is a long-established and traditional links golf course and is famed for its heather lined fairways, hazardous winds and tight holes. The par 3, signature 6th hole is only 152 yards but requires accuracy as the two-tiered green is protected by well-placed pot bunkers and strategic run-off areas. With a plethora of memorable holes, Gailes Links Golf Course really is a must-play when on a golf vacation in Scotland.
