Gleneagles PGA Centenary GC (site of the 2014 Ryder Cup)
When Jack Nicklaus was asked to design the third major course at Gleneagles Hotel, it continued a tradition of champions. James Braid, who created the King's and the Queen's, was the first golfer to win the Open Championship five times. Nicklaus is universally acknowledged as the greatest champion the game has ever produced. So here, in this spectacular Perthshire glen, the three Gleneagles courses now offer an accumulation of golfing acumen spanning more generations than perhaps any other on earth. Even for a champion and acclaimed golf architect like Nicklaus, the PGA Course was a challenge. It had to be unique, a course in the modern design ethos that at its fullest stretch tests the greatest players, while, in the immortal phrase of Bobby Jones, "offering problems a man may attempt according to his ability... never hopeless for the lesser player nor failing to concern and interest the expert." From the back tees, the PGA measures 7,081 yards - the longest inland course in Scotland. However, the tees are graded at each hole in five stages, including a challenging 6,551 yards from the white markers down to 5,065 from the red. The putting surfaces are and among the best and fastest in Scotland. (PGA Centenary offers the use of carts or “buggies” – the other Gleneagles courses do not – caddies are available too) (An excellent practice facility is available at the resort, but not adjacent to the golf course). Premier Golf Rating: A
Gleneagles Kings GC, Auchterarder
Few hotels can boast such a great golf course as Gleneagles Kings at 6504 yards and par 70. Considered a "parkland" course, as opposed to most Scottish courses being "links", The Kings Course requires good judgment to navigate the hills, bunkers, sloping fairways and tricky greens. There are plenty of good caddies here, and pull carts can be managed quite easily. Known for its superb maintenance condition (for a Scottish course), Gleneagles Kings features a tough uphill first hole and two fine finishing holes, the dogleg 17th where your tee shot cannot run to the right, and the downhill 18th toward the stately hotel in the distance. In between are a series of beautiful holes that require accurate shotmaking and constant course management to navigate the ever-present trouble spots. The course can be played as a par 68 from the white tees, and a par 70 from the championship tees. The clubhouse at Gleneagles features a nice modern pro shop with many quality items, and a nice grill (called The Dormy House). In addition, for years the Kings Course was site of the Scottish Open held typically the week before the British Open (before being replaced by the Loch Lomond World Invitational). (An excellent practice facility is available at the resort, but not adjacent to the golf course). Premier Golf Rating: A
