Gailes Links Golf Course

One of the world’s truly great tests of links golf.

Sandy Lyle

Overview

Home to the Glasgow Golf Club, Gailes Links is — as you might expect — a “tough cookie”, not to mention the 9th oldest golf club in the world. The Ayrshire coastal breeze and abundant heather are unforgiving, so you’ll need solid, straight driving rather than raw power to reach the wonderfully true and velvety greens.
