PGA Centenary Course at Gleneagles Review
The Centenary Course at Gleneagles hosted the 2014 Ryder Cup and witnessed great scenes as Europe strolled to another victory. This is a golf course where it really doesn't matter if you have a stinker - the backdrop is simply glorious, enough to take your mind off the very worst shots.
It features a great opening hole, a par four measuring 442 yards. The drive needs to be to the left of the fairway and the approach is played to a magnificent raised green that is well protected by a bunker on the right.
The ninth is a classic par five measuring 564 yards with water coming into play on the right. The perfect drive is between the fairway bunkers, with your second shot played to the left. You are then left with a short approach to a narrow green protected by water.
The 15th is a 463 yard par four. Stand on the tee and take in the view of the Ochil Hills in the background. Thick rough on the left of the fairway is to be avoided, as is a deep bunker on the right. The green has four tiers.
The final hole, Dun Roamin', is a 533-yard par five. It rises and calls for a drive to the left to avoid being blocked out by trees. The second shot should then be played to the right to leave you a pitch to a narrow green guarded by five bunkers.
