Western Gailes

Western Gailes Golf Club resides over a sumptuous links golf course. Located just north of Troon in the west of Scotland, Western Gailes is a hidden wonder of Scottish golf. It is another Scottish course that is well past its centenary, having been established in 1897. The story goes that four Glaswegians were fed up playing muddy parkland games, and set out to create a more enjoyable venue to play in.
The course remained in its original glory until it was retouched in the 1970’s. It has some unusual quirks, most notably that the clubhouse is located in the middle of the course. It does add to the clubhouse atmosphere, with plenty of room for backseat golfing from the dining room. Out on the course, some of the finest sights in Scotland can be found. With both train tracks and the sea coming into play, Western Gailes certainly poses a few quandaries to those who take it on.
Links golf is renowned for cavernous bunkers, and Western Gailes keeps up this fine tradition with aplomb. Should you find yourself in one, take and moment to take in that scene; You may find it quite enjoyable. The ball will bound along the rough and tumble fairways, but it would be best to avoid the punishing rough.
Undoubtedly, the views out towards the Firth of Clyde and the Isle of Arran will take your breath away. The more pleasant surprise may come from the golf course, though. Western Gailes is a fine, rambling links experience that any player can enjoy. With its location just above Royal Troon and Prestwick golf courses, make sure to include Western Gailes on your golfing tour of West Scotland.
