The Kings Course, Gleneagles


Opened in 1919, the King's is a triumph of golf course design. Every hole is a surprise - not one is overlooked by another so that you have the glorious sensation of being the only ones on the course. The King's is a tough track and has hosted many great championships; James Braid's plan for the course was to test even the best players' shot-making skills. The King's is arguably the best inland course in Scotland - when he first played here, Lee Trevino famously remarked 'If Heaven is as good as this, I sure hope they have some tee times left' - and its eighteenth is one of the most glorious finishes in golf.
