Western Gailes Golf Club

  • Numerous visitors around the world come to the Ayrshire coast to experience traditional Scottish links golf and Western Gailes is one of the games finest.

    This charming links course has been tested by modern greats, such as Rory Mcllroy and Bubba Watson, as well as legends of the games including Gary Player and Tony Jacklin. Western Gailes come highly acclaimed and a perfect addition to your Ayrshire golf break.

    Western Gailes was founded in 1897 and has a glowing reputation as one of the toughest courses along the Ayrshire coast….or perhaps even Scotland. The course measures 7,000 yards from the back tees and is a recognised tournament venue, having held such esteemed tournaments, such as the Open Championship, The Curtis Cup and the PGA Championship just to name a few.

    The course is nestled between the railway and the sea, which both come into play on any wayward shot, typical of the Ayrshire links courses. The special part of Western Gailes is that the sea is always within close proximity to your ball (the course is no more than 2 holes wide).

    Playable again and again due to the prevailing wind strength and direction (usually north or south westerly) which can change in an instant, causing havoc to your course strategy. The undulating fairways and contoured greens provide a stern challenge, but all in the beautiful surroundings of a natural Scottish coast.

    The clubhouse provides a warm welcome and superb facilities, as well as a picturesque view of the Ailsa Crag and Peaks of Arran. A wonderful place to discuss your latest round with a well earnt beverage.

    For an excellent test of links golf, we recommend a round at Western Gailes, a great feature and a memorable round on your next Scotland golf holiday.
