Our Review - Gleneagles (Kings)

The list of great inland courses in Scotland is fairly short – Loch Lomond, Blairgowrie, Downfield, The Carrick at Loch Lomond and possibly Letham Grange.

But of those that are open and accessible to the public (at a price), Gleneagles has to come first and the jewel in the Gleneagles crown is the Kings – and this despite the fact that the PGA Centenary Course, designed by Jack Nicklaus, is to host the 2014 Ryder Cup. That course has been created, whereas the Kings (and Queens) were simply superimposed onto the natural topography and, like so many great tracks, look and feel as if they have always been there.

Laid out in Perthshire’s rolling hills, the Kings was designed by James Braid and will test every part of your game, particularly your irons and approach play as many of the greens are elevated – so always take a club more than you think.



 

From the friendly welcome to the drive home, everything you could possibly ask for in a day's golf,  Scotland golf tour or vacation, can be found here at the Gleneagles Hotel and golf resort: magnificent courses, luxury locker rooms, exclusive brands and a relaxed clubhouse serving great food and drink.

Whether a leading pro or enthusiastic beginner, the Gleneagles golf courses are a test for any golfer, making your golf vacation in Scotland the vacation of a lifetime. 

The PGA Centenary Course, created by Jack Nicklaus, has five different tees at each hole, building up to the ultimate 7,088 yard championship test. 

The famous 6,741 yard King's and the challenging 5,965 yard Queen's were both designed by James Braid. As the first man to win five Open Championships, he knew a thing or two about the perfect course.
 
Whatever course you want to play, you can choose to hire leading brand clubs and footwear from us - the best equipment might just inspire you to play your best ever round. And if that is not enough to make your golf tour complete, visit the golf shop for a club to give you that extra couple of yards or a ball that'll fly long and true. 
 
If you're unsure of the swirling wind, the menacing bunkers or the undulating greens, why not take along one of our caddies? They're like having an extra club in your bag!

 

Directions

TRAVELLING BY ROAD

Chauffeur driven or self drive cars can be arranged by the hotel. For full details and an online booking form for our chauffeur service please click here.

From the South:
The M9 becomes the A9 (dual carriageway) and you should continue on it for about 11 miles. Turn off at the junction with the A823 signed 'Crieff and Gleneagles'.

Turn left onto the A823 following the sign for the Gleneagles® Hotel and golf courses' and the entrance to the hotel is on the left, about a mile further on.

Should you miss this exit from the A9, take the next one signed 'Auchterarder' and then turn left onto the A824 following the signs to 'Gleneagles and Crieff'. Turn left at the crossroads onto the A823. The hotel entrance is on the right, about half a mile further on.


From the North:
Leave the A9 at the exit for the A823 after the one signed 'Gleneagles Station'. Turn right onto the A823 following the sign for the Gleneagles Hotel and golf courses' and the entrance to the hotel is on the left, about a mile further on.


From Further South and London:
the quickest route is usually via the M1 - M6 motorways. After Carlisle, follow signs for Glasgow, taking the A74 - M74. Leave the M74 at junction 4 and take the M73 signed to Stirling. This will lead you onto the A80, then the M80.

Take the M80 North and join the M9 signed to Perth. When the M9 becomes the A9, follow the local directions as detailed above. Do not be tempted to take the direction signed to Gleneagles as this goes to a private estate and is in the opposite direction to the hotel.

The PGA has really moved on since 3 years ago when last played and in fantastic condition building to up the Ryder Cup. Course is long and you need to strike well. Lots of scrubs have been removed to make way for the crowds...

Playing tips:

hit long :)

The Kings Course at Gleneagles is just exceptional. I took my father-in-law in May and I think we both agreed it was one of the best courses we have ever played.

We both smiled on the first when you have such a large landing area, the only way to not hit it is to do an air shot. But then, once you get to play the second shot, you realise that it's going to be tough.

The variety of holes is exceptional and overall better than the Queen's. And as it was a sunny day, the views were exceptional. The Par 3's are definitely the most challenging part of the course, but 3rd Par 4th which appears to play more like 410 yards than the 374 yards on the scorecard is a fantastic hole but felt a little unfair.

The 13th, called "Braid's Brawest" (braw meaning "splended") is a 448 yard hole and simply magnificent - its one of the holes I would like to play again and again.

As you would except, service and practice facilities are excellent and the new restaurant in the clubhouse is well worth a visit, even if you are not staying in the hotel.

Playing tips:

Just enjoy it - try to play well, but its one of the great golf courses so enjoy.

Favourite Hole: 14

Last Played: 16 May 2012.
