Golf Course/
Western Gailes

Western Gailes is one of a group of great links courses in that beautiful stretch of Ayrshire golfing country that stretches from Irvine to Prestwick and with but a short interruption south to the mighty links of Turnberry itself.

Formed in 1897, the Club has hosted a number of prestigious tournaments is also used for final qualifying when the Open is played at Turnberry or Royal Troon, and also as a final qualifying venue for the Seniors Open.

It is situated between the railway and the sea, so typical of the classic Ayshire links courses, with both being very much in play for the errant golfer.  It is also special amongst seaside courses that are no more than two holes wide, in having its clubhouse in a more or less central position leaving seven holes to the north and eleven to the south.

The course is never other than an excellent test of true links golf.  Any change in the strength or direction of the wind, that usually varies between south-westerly and north-westerly off the adjacent Firth of Clyde, provides new challenges that are compounded by the undulating terrain and finely contoured greens cleverly located and set in the folds of the surrounding sand dunes.

The course is highly rated and is 35th in the Top 100 courses of the British Isles.
