South West Scotland, Scotland
Golf course overview
Gailes Links is a long-established and traditional links golf course and is famed for its heather lined fairways, hazardous winds, and tight holes. The par-3, signature 6th hole is only 152 yards but requires accuracy as the two-tiered green is protected by well-placed pot bunkers and strategic run-off areas. With a plethora of memorable holes, Gailes Links Golf Course really is a must-play when on a golf vacation in Scotland.
Founded in 1787 Gailes Links is the ninth oldest golf club in the world. It is a challenging links course, consistently selected by the R&A as a qualifying venue for the Open Championship. Situated in the heart of Scotland's Ayrshire golf coast, the Willie Park design has also hosted the Scottish PGA Championship.
