    Founded in 1897 Western Gailes Golf Course is a superb and traditional links golf course classically positioned between Irvine Bay and the adjacent railway on a thin strip of land. Western Gailes has attracted a number of high profile golf tournaments and players, from Harry Vardon in 1903 to Rory McIlroy in the 2007 European Men's Amateur Team Championship.

    The course itself is a magnificent and wholesome links golf challenge but is unusual in the fact that the clubhouse is centrally located on the course. The gently undulating fairways, well protected greens and winding burns that dissect the course make for a wonderfully enjoyable test of golf. The 14th hole or ‘Whins’ is a superb example of the challenges at Western Gailes Golf Course, albeit in prevailing wind the hole requires a well-placed tee shot and accurate approach shot to a long narrow green guarded by pot hole bunkers. Western Gailes Golf Course is a fine and elegant example of classic links golf and should not be dismissed when planning a golf vacation to Scotland.
